Join with us as celebrate the momentous events of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection:
Palm Sunday: On Sunday, April 10, 2022, we will commemorate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Matthew 21:1–9 (ESV). Please join us in worship at our Sunday morning service at 10:30 p.m.
Maundy Thursday: Maundy Thursday is Thursday, April 14, 2022. It commemorates the Last Supper, the Passover supper Jesus celebrated with the 12 disciples before his crucifixion, death and resurrection. The word maundy derives from the Latin word mandatum meaning “command.” Jesus’ command was: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” John 13:34 (ESV).
Good Friday: Good Friday is Friday, April 15, 2022. Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion, death, and burial of Jesus. On the cross, Jesus declared, “It is finished,” a translation of the Greek word tetelestai, an accounting term that means “paid in full.” By His death, Jesus paid our debt for sin in full.
Easter: Easter is Sunday, April 17, 2022. We celebrate the resurrection of our Lord on the third day following his crucifixion at Calvary. Scripture recounts many eyewitness accounts of the risen Christ, including His appearance to a doubting Thomas, and that “he was seen by over 500 at once, of whom the greater part remain present.” 1 Cor. 15:5-6. Scripture’s challenge: you don’t have to take our word, go ask the eyewitnesses! He is risen indeed.
The Great Commission After his resurrection, Jesus was seen by many, including more than 500 people at one time. 1 Cor. 15:6 (ESV). One appearance is recounted in Matthew 28, where Jesus instructed his disciples “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matt. 28:19-20 (ESV).
Pentecost: Jesus promised his disciples that they would “receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.” Acts 1:8 (ESV). Forty days later, He fulfilled that promise when “the Day of Pentecost had fully come ….” Acts 2:1 (ESV). Join us for worship on Pentecost Sunday at our morning service on May 23, 2021 at 10:30 am.
