Walk with us this Holy Week

Walk with us this Holy Week

Worship during Holy Week and Easter is designed for us to experience the last days of Christ’s life; his death, and resurrection. Fear, anger, and deceit abound; as do love, courage, forgiveness, and grace – just like life. Our worship creates a means for God’s story and our story to overlap and intertwine, to lead us through darkness and despair into light and new life. Click below for a complete schedule.
