Seasonal Worship Services

Enter the gates of Jerusalem with Jesus! We enthusiastically follow Jesus with shouts of Hosannas. However, we quickly sense the emotions shift as we begin to face his passion.

What we are celebrating is the wondrous salvation our God, brought to pass more than 3000 years ago when he delivered us from the bondage in Egypt.
This festival is more than just a remembrance, even as the Lord’s Supper, instituted on Passover night, is not JUST a “remembrance,” but also a participation in the events we commemorate. It is a way for us to claim the story of liberation and salvation as our own…to not let it just rest in the past with our ancestors of faith.
We will retell the Passover story using traditional signs and symbols that have helped the Children of God remember the events and meaning of our Exodus. These experiences will help you to discover for yourself some of the deeper meanings and mysteries of our faith.
holy Week Labyrinth Walk | The Journey to the Cross
Monday, April 15 & Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 7:00-8:30pm
South Broadland Fellowship Hall
This Labyrinth is designed to help us reflect on Christ’s suffering as he journeyed toward the cross and the events of Easter. It will help us think and pray about our own lives too, and about people who are suffering in the world today. If you have never walked a labyrinth before, don’t worry. Unlike a maze, there are no dead-ends, so you cannot get lost. The pathway leads you to the middle and back out again by a different route.
On the way, there are various ‘stations’ designed to help you pray, think and meet God. Come walk this journey to the cross this Holy Week and deepen your spiritual walk to the cross.

On this evening we gather to remember the command Jesus gives us, “to love one another.” God’s love is experienced in the final meal Jesus shares with his disciples. God calls us to experience this same love in the first meal of God’s kingdom.

As the evening draws to a close, the final events of Jesus' life cast a shadow of darkness. The act of extinguishing candles symbolizes the impending darkness that enfolds creation, culminating in Jesus' crucifixion.
easter Morning Day of the Resurrection
Sunday, April 21, 2019 - 10:00am
Death does not have the final say. The cold stone tomb could not stop life. This is the power of love found in the resurrection. The sober reflection of Lent culminates with the crucifixion of Jesus. Then quietly on this morning, the new light reveals a fresh start and pure freedom. All are invited to celebrate with profound joy!
