Because there is no indoor worship during the pandemic, Holy Week services will be recorded and visible on the CtK Twinsburg channel of YouTube. There will also be drive-in Holy Week worship services.
Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday worship. Palm Sunday worship includes 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. Palm Sunday is March 28th, 2021. The 2021 Drive-In Palm/Passion Sunday worship service begins with a procession with palms. Here is the link to Palm/Passion Sunday worship bulletin with the reading of Christ’s Passion from the Gospel of Mark. Here is a link to the recorded Palm/Passion Sunday bulletin.
Maundy Thursday, April 1st, 2021, is the day in the church year when Christians commemorate Jesus’ Last Supper in the Upper Room with his disciples, prior to his betrayal by Judas Iscariot. It is the official end of Lent and the beginning of the Triduum, or Three Days, leading up to Christ’s resurrection on Easter morning. On the Thursday of Holy Week – the week between Palm Sunday and Easter – CtK’s 7 PM Maundy Thursday worship will be a drive-in worship service with Holy Communion. Historically, this service has included 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.
