Holy Week and Easter Worship Services and Events

Join us for worship services this Holy Week and Easter Sunday:

Maundy Thursday – April 13, 2017, 7 p.m. at Westboro

  “At the Crossroads – Forgiven”

This service for Maundy Thursday we remember that when Jesus institutes the first Lord’s Supper, he grants forgiveness to his disciples through the bread and wine.  When we receive the bread and wine of Communion in remembrance of him, we receive that forgiveness and in turn forgive others.

Good Friday – April 14, 2017, 1 p.m. at Westboro

“At the Crossroads – Death”

Join us for a special service for Good Friday. In this service we are reminded that when Jesus is on the cross, he accepts the power of death upon himself and does not turn away from it. We, too, must face death when it comes and not turn away from it, knowing that his salvation awaits us on the other side. The service content helps us to face the inevitable crossroads of death with the certain hope of everlasting life through Christ and his cross.

Good Friday – April 14, 2017, 7 p.m. at Ogema
