Holy Week & Easter 2019

Palm Sunday – April 14th

Sunday at 9:00 AM

This last Sunday before Easter, we will remember the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem with a procession in which palm fronds are carried by our children as they sing. In this contemporary service, we will be graced by the singing of both of our children’s choirs.

Both of our children’s choirs will be with us singing in this traditional service along with the music of our handbell choir.

Maundy Thursday – April 18th

We join together for a simple communal meal in our Spahr Center and then a worship service filled with special music. There will also be a special foot washing time this evening. We will partake in Communion as we recall God’s great love for us.

prayer vigil

Prayer Vigil – April 18th & 19th

Thursday at 8:00 PM until Friday at 7:00 PM

Signup now, but you are welcome to come even if you don’t sign up.

During the Prayer Vigil, FBC will be open all night, we will enter by the Bishop entrance. The vigil will be in the Fireside Room. It will run from 8 pm (after the Maundy Thursday service until 7 pm on Good Friday). It is meant to be a time of silent or group reflection and prayer on our Lord’s passion and death as we prepare ourselves for Resurrection Sunday. There will be prayer prompts and devotional materials for persons to use if needed. We will have candlelight and music available also. The materials will be in Fireside, but people can also go to the Sanctuary.

The sign-up board will be available the next 2 Sundays. People usually sign up individually or as a family for a minimum of 1 hour. We will try to fill all of the one-hour slots during that time. Our hope is that the room will not be empty as we watch and pray as the disciples did with Jesus. If you did not sign up for a time, you are still encouraged to come. There is no requirement that any given slot can contain only one person at a time.

Good Friday – April 19th

Friday at 7:00 PM
“The Apology Chronicles” – a service of forgiveness
Come join us for The Apology Chronicles as we witness a powerful journey to forgiveness and peace. Come lay your burdens down like never before. Bring your family and friends to witness this amazing event and an experience that you will never forget! This is a powerful contemporary reflection on the meaning of Good Friday.”
