The Three Days are three contemplative services that commemorate Jesus sacrifice on the cross, taking us on a journey from the Last Supper to the Resurrection. This year we will have the stations of the cross in sanctuary open for meditation and reflection throughout Holy Week.
Maundy Thursday – March 29, 7:00 pm
This service begins the Three Days with a celebration of Holy Communion and Foot Washing as we remember the Last Supper. It is a time to remember Jesus love and care for us, and a time for us to commit to love and care for each other. This service ends in silence and contemplation.
Good Friday – March 30, 7:00 pm
This service commemorates Jesus passion – his trial and crucifixion. This year we will be using the stations of the cross as a framework for a Tenabrae service, which is a service of darkness. We will extinguish a candle for each of the stations, ending the service in near darkness. This service also ends in silence and contemplation. There will also be an ecumenical service at 12:00 noon held at 2nd Congregational Church.
Easter Vigil – March 31, 5:00 pm
This service completes the three days, as we wait in quietness and reflection for the resurrection. We will light candles and share the stories of our faith. While traditionally this service is held late at night, as it transitions into a celebration of the resurrection, we will hold it at our regular Saturday service time, 5:00 pm.
