Worship Services during Holy Week:
March 25, Palm Sunday 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.
March 29, Maundy Thursday 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.
March 30, Good Friday 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.
April 1, Easter Sunday 8:30 & 11:00, Large Sanctuary
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 6:00pm, Large Sanctuary
Evening worship will center on individual testimonies and reflections on the resurrection. This service has been a favorite of many—don’t miss it!
