Maundy Thursday worship service will be live-streamed on our website and Facebook page at 6:30PM on April 9th. After much reflection and communal discernment, we have decided to share the sacrament of Holy Communion online for this Holy Week service. As a continuation of our Lenten theme: When The Hungry Are Fed, Pastor Jason will be inviting you to join him in baking your own unleavened communion bread at home as a devotional practice at the beginning of our live-streamed Maundy Thursday service. Of course any bread and wine (or grape juice) will do as well, but if you would like to join Pastor Jason in baking your own communion bread at home, the ingredients to gather before the service are listed below.
Please do not make a special trip out of your home to pick up any of the following ingredients. Pastor Jason will suggest substitutions. The Israelite people “came out of the land of Egypt in haste” (Dt. 16:3) making bread that had no time to rise before their Exodus journey using whatever they had on hand. We will make do together.
- whole wheat and/or white flour
- baking powder
- table salt
- oil (any kind will work)
- honey and/or molasses
Note: Unlike our other live-streamed worship services, the video of this service will not be saved for later viewing as Holy Communion is only celebrated in the context of a gathering of an assembly. Celebrating Holy Communion in the context of an online worship service is considered an exceptional practice befitting of the extraordinary circumstances in which we find our selves this Holy Week.
Good Friday worship service will be live-streamed at 6:30PM on Friday April 10th. Taking full advantage of live-streamed media technology blended with the centuries-old tradition of the Stations of the Cross established in the 15th century by the Franciscan order to guide one’s contemplation of Christ’s passion, we invite you to join Pastor Jason on a meditative journey of music, scripture, and prayer as we go on a virtual art-walk through the Stations of the Cross online together.
Easter Sunday While we continue to be urged to stay at home for the health and safety of our neighbors, our communities, and ourselves, not even COVID-19 could stop the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and it won’t stop our celebration of the abundant life and love of Christ this Easter season either! Join us for a service of song, scripture, and a hope-filled sermon live-streamed Easter Sunday April 12th at 9:30AM as we rejoice together that he is risen indeed, Alleluia!
