Special Services

Maundy Thursday
On Thursday evening during Holy Week we meet in the sanctuary to remember and celebrate Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples in the Upper Room. After sharing in the Sacrament of Holy Communion, we observe the ancient office of Tennebrae. Lay people seated around the communion table read the scriptural accounts of the events of Holy Week, with each reading followed by the extinguishing of a candle until the entire sanctuary is in darkness. Then the Christ Candle is lit, symbolizing the hope of the resurrection.

Christmas Eve
In our Candlelight Service On Christmas Eve we gather for a service of lesson and carols. After the final reading from the Prologue of the Gospel of John, we pass the flame of the Christ Candle from our Advent Wreath throughout the congregation.

Then, with the sanctuary aglow in light, we join in singing "Silent Night." This service is especially powerful and memorable for children of all ages.
