Holy Week

Holy WeekHoly Week begins with Palm Sunday worship. CtK offers a Palm/Passion Sunday procession with palms at both Sunday worship services: 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM Sunday, March 25th, 2018. Both Sunday worship services and the 5:30 PM Saturday worship service on March 24th, 2018, include a dramatic reading of the Gospel account of Jesus’ Passion leading to his death on a cross, which is why the day is also referred to as the Sunday of the Passion.

Maundy Thursday, March 29th, 2018, is the day in the church year when Christians celebrate the Last Supper. On the Thursday of Holy Week – the week between Palm Sunday and Easter – we have worship at 7 PM.  This service includes Holy Communion and the stripping of the altar in anticipation of the following day – Good Friday. Worshipers are asked to leave the service in silence.

Good Friday ChancelGood Friday, March 30th, 2018 is the most somber day of the Christian year when we remember Jesus’ death on the cross.

At 8 PM on the evening before Easter, Saturday, March 31st, 2018 we hold an Easter Vigil that begins by gathering at a new fire. The service continues with a procession into the sanctuary, followed by hearing several Old Testament stories of faith. The service concludes with a celebration of Christ’s resurrection and holy communion.

Join us for the holiest day of the Christian year as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM Easter Sunday, April 1st, 2018.

In 2018 Palm/Passion Sunday is on March 25th, Maundy Thursday is on March 29th, Good Friday is on March 30th, and the Vigil of Easter will be Saturday, March 31st.
