Holy Week at Emmanuel

Each year Christians enter into the liturgical commemoration of the final week of our Lord’s life leading up to his crucifixion and resurrection. Called “Holy Week,” this week centers upon events both joyful and tragic.

Join the People of God as we celebrate the life-giving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Savior.

Palm Sunday / Sunday of the Passion – April 5, 10:15 a.m.
This service begins Holy Week. The events of Holy Week are recounted as we read the Passion account from Luke’s gospel.

Maundy Thursday – April 9, 7:00 p.m.
The night of our Lord’s betrayal he gave them a new commandment, “Just as I have loved you, so you ought to love one another.” In humble service our Lord kneels before his disciples and washes their feet.

Good Friday – April 10, 7:00 p.m.
Our Lord suffers on the cross for the redemption of all humanity. The service recounts the depths of God’s eternal love in the proclamation of the St. John Passion.

~Easter Day~
Christ is Risen! He Is Risen, Indeed!

April 12, 10:15 a.m.

With this bold acclamation Christians greet one another on Easter day and throughout the Easter season. Festival Liturgy of the Resurrection will be celebrated. Our voices of praise will join with angelic throngs as we sing Christ’s victory over the bondage of death. Our joy swells in crescendos of happiness since we believe Christ’s victory becomes ours as well. No more shall death separate us from the love of God: we belong to him forever.
Sunday School. Adult Sunday school will not meet on Easter morning.

There will be an Easter egg hunt for all children up through 6th grade at 9:AM.
