Holy Week Services
April 1, Palm Sunday, 8:30 & 11:00am (6:00pm at Coit Community Church)
Our worship begins with a procession of palms. Children, children’s teachers and leaders, parents, and anyone wishing to join the procession, please meet in the café area just before either morning service to receive palms and instructions.
April 5, Maundy Thursday, 7:00pm (nursery available, infants to age 5)
Maundy Thursday is a worship service remembering the upper room. We will gather around tables in the fellowship hall to hear the words of Christ and to break bread. There is a special role in the service for young readers.
April 6, Good Friday, 12:15pm (nursery available, infants to age 5)
Good Friday worship is a 45-minute service of scripture readings and songs focusing on the end of Christ’s life, from the betrayal in the Garden through his burial.
April 7, Easter Vigil, 8:30pm
The Early Church began its Easter celebrations with a vigil service on the evening of Holy Saturday. We continue this tradition in a service that begins with a procession into the darkened sanctuary, continues with Scripture readings telling the story of God’s salvation, and culminates with the resurrection story and renewal of baptismal vows.
April 8, Easter Sunday, 8:30 & 11:00am (nursery available, infants to age 3)
It is our custom at Church of the Servant to bring potted plants and flowers from our homes and “dress” the communion table with them at the beginning of the Easter morning worship. After the service we will gather our flowers and dress the tables for our celebrative Easter brunch (10-11am) in the fellowship space. Afterwards, we gather our flowers to enjoy at home. You are invited to participate in this tradition.
April 8, Easter Sunday, 6:00pm (nursery available, infants to age 5)
The Easter evening service includes the testimonies of three individuals on what the resurrection means to them. This has been a favorite service of many — don’t miss it!
