Asset 7

All are invited to draw near to God as we mark the pivotal events of Jesus' final earthly days — his entry into Jerusalem, the Last Supper with his disciples, his suffering and death on a Roman cross, and his glorious resurrection.

Palm Sunday • April 2

Morning Services | 8:00, 11:00* a.m.
Matthew 21:1-11 | "Behold, Your King Is Coming"
Dr. Todd M. Smedley
Evening Communion Service | 6:00 p.m.
Psalm 118 | "The Lord's Doing"
Rev. Corey Gray

Palm Sunday marks Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem for the Jewish holiday of Passover. As he rode on a donkey, the crowd spread cloaks and branches on the road before him.

Maundy Thursday • April 6 

Communion Service | 7:30 p.m.
John 18:1-11 | "Jesus Loses None"
Rev. Thomas Myrick

The word “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word “mandatum” meaning "command” or “order" and relates to Jesus’ commandment in John 13:34 — “…just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”

Good Friday • April 7

Tenebrae Service of Darkness | 7:30 p.m.
Matthew 27:1-2, 11-31 | "The Awful Yet Wonderful Exchange"
Dr. Todd M. Smedley

The Service of Tenebrae, which means “darkness,” is an extended meditation on the cross of Christ. The service concludes without a benediction in anticipation of the resurrection of our Lord on Easter morning.

Easter Sunday • April 9

6:00 a.m. | Sanctuary front steps
1 Corinthians 15:20-28 | "Christ the Firstfruits"
Dr. Todd M. Smedley

Sunrise Communion Service held on the front steps of the Sanctuary. A continental breakfast will follow.

Join us to worship the risen Lord.

“He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” — Luke 24:6–7
