2019 Holy Week Worship Services
Palm Sunday, April 14, 10am
Large Sanctuary and 10am Basic English Service, Room 4
The Palm Sunday worship service will begin with a palm processional, after which we will turn our focus toward Holy Week with a reading of the Passion narrative. The reading will be interspersed with hymns.
Maundy Thursday, April 18, 7pm
Maundy Thursday is a worship service remembering the upper room. We gather around tables in the fellowship space to hear the words of Christ and to break bread.
Good Friday, April 19, 12:15pm
Good Friday worship is a 45-minute service of prayer, meditation, and song, focusing on the end of Christ’s life, from the betrayal in the Garden through his burial.
Easter Sunday morning, April 21
8:30am & 11:00am, Large Sanctuary [no separate BES]
Morning worship begins with a procession of flowers to dress the communion table. It is our custom at COS to bring potted plants and flowers from our homes to process in and “dress” the communion table. We will then gather the flowers to brighten the Easter Brunch tables (10-11am) in the fellowship space. You are invited to participate in this tradition. Our Basic English Service friends will join us. Parents: Children’s Worship and Little Lambs will not be offered Easter morning to allow children and our volunteers to celebrate Easter with their families in the sanctuary.
Easter Sunday evening, 6pm
Evening worship will center on individual testimonies and reflections on the resurrection.
