Holy Week Activities

Maundy Thursday Service

Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 7:30pm

This Thursday evening at 7:30pm EST you (and your household) are invited to join in for a Zoom-hosted, interactive Maundy Thursday worship service--live (at least in part) from the Ziegler’s kitchen! The reason why we’ll be gathering around the laptop and the table for this service is so that we can share in a Moravian Love Feast. Just FYI, this Love Feast is not a sacrament. So, if you’d like to gather up some water (or some other beverage) and some bread (or crackers or sweet bread or whatever carby substance you’d like), and then get ready to distribute those items to your entire household as we move through worship together. Also, if you are able to share this love feast around a table, you may feel a bit more like Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem for the Passover 2,000 years ago. (Bonus points if you research what the disciples would have been sitting on in the upper room. Email me photographic proof of you and/or your family dining this way for this meal. Also, after you hear the word “God Loves You” please respond with the phrase “And There’s Nothing You Can Do About It!”)

To join this Zoom service, please contact Pastor Tim at tim@gowestsidechurch.org and he will email you directions.

 

Good Friday Service

This Friday, April 10, 2020, at 7:30pm EST, we will bear witness to the death of Christ during our shared YouTube Live worship service [link to channel below]. It will be a Tennebrae service that examines the ensuing darkness. If you’d like to have candles lit in your at-home makeshift worship spaces, that’d be great. We will be extinguishing fifteen candles during the service.
