Are you looking for companions along the way?
We are called to walk alongside one another, to share one another’s burdens, to laugh together, to grieve together, to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, provide shelter for the homeless, to work for justice and peace, to be the presence of Jesus in the world. Come walk along with us on the way to new life.

Upcoming Events and Holy Week Services
Sunday, April 2: Palm Sunday Service at 10:00 am
It’s all about taking it to the streets. The raucous “blaaht” of vuvuzelas greets the crowd parading from the church’s parish hall into its worship space, waving palm branches and singing joyously in celebration of the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem. We are active participants in a street demonstration, witnesses to Jesus’ importance in our lives.
Thursday, April 6: Maundy Thursday Service at 7:30 pm
It’s all about love. On Maundy Thursday we celebrate Jesus’ summary of God’s command to love and serve one another. Join us for worship with music, prayer, and Holy Eucharist. A voluntary foot washing symbolizes our call to humbly serve. We end by taking away all the church decorations and extinguishing the candles to prepare for solemn worship on Good Friday.
Friday, April 7: Good Friday Service at 7:30 pm
On Friday we give ourselves the time and space to lament, to sit with the terrible loss of the Son of Man on the cross. We gather in a somber frame of mind and allow ourselves to grieve for the suffering and pain of the One who loves us best.Beautiful music and silences help us with this.
Saturday, April 8: The Great Vigil of Easter at 8:00 pm
On Saturday it’s all about hope. We begin around a bonfire before moving under a tent in the parish hall rather than in the sanctuary. There we worship expectantly with ancient chant and Hebrew scripture. Candlelight and silences help us with this wait before we process to the sanctuary to celebrate Jesus’ return to life, with Holy Communion, joyous music, and ringing bells!
Sunday, April 9: Easter Sunday Service at 10:00 am
It’s all about joy. We sing our “Hallelujahs” for the first time in 40 days and ring bells whenever the word is spoken or sung. The gorgeous music offered by the choir and musicians lifts our spirits ever higher. The church is ablaze with the white and gold of banners, altar cloths, spring flowers, candles, and brass as we celebrate in Holy Communion the new life that has emerged out of the shadow of death. “Christ is risen!” we proclaim. “Christ is risen indeed!”
