Special Services

 

Ash Wednesday - March 1, 2017 at 8:00pm

Throughout the years this service has become very meaningful for many of us. It is a time to have our spirits lifted with moments of prayer and quiet reflection upon the scripture lesson and readings shared. We also share Holy Communion and find strength and renewal in the Bread of Life and Cup of Love. We will also offer the imposition of ashes. We encourage you to begin looking toward Jerusalem by worshipping with us on Ash Wednesday.

 

4th Grade First Communion April 2, 2017

 On April 2nd a Special Communion Service will be held and 4th graders will make their First Communion.

 

Maundy Thursday, Holy Communion and Tenebrae - April 13, 2017 at 8:00pm

This powerful service involves the lighting and extinguishing of candles as a reminder of the darkness that covered the Earth after the passion and crucifixion of Christ. Tenebrae, the Latin word for "darkness," is also observed to impress upon our hearts the tragic consequences of humanity's sin and the greatness of the Saviour's sacrifice at Calvary. Throughout this service, there will be readings highlighting the Passion Story of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are encouraged to join us for this meaningful service.
