Holy Week Schedule – April 2-8

The Labyrinth will be available for walking in the Fellowship Hall during Holy Week, April 2-6. You may walk during the day Monday—Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  Evening hours will be Monday—Wednesday, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., Thursday—Friday, 8:00 – 9:00 p.m.  There will be Bible readings available.  This is a very meaningful way to focus on the events of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday, April 5  We will celebrate communion in commemoration of the Last Supper during this 7:00 p.m. service in the Sanctuary.

Good Friday, April 6  We will have an extended dramatic reading of The Passion of Christ with anthems and hymns of the cross in this reflective and solemn service at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary.

The Great Vigil of Easter Scripture reminds us that we are to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).  Rather than praying at our church for the great vigil of Easter this year, you can pray wherever you are : home, work, school, your car, or anywhere that is meaningful.  If you would like participate in the 24-hour prayer vigil from the end of the Good Friday service until 8:00 p.m. on Holy Saturday, please sign up for your time of prayer after worship this morning.  Go into the world, pray without ceasing, and keep watch for the joy of Easter is almost here.

Easter Day, April 8   7:00 a.m. community Easter dawn service at Fredericksburg United Methodist; 8:30 & 11:00 a.m. worship; 9:45 a.m. Church School.
