Three Days

The center of time is found in the arrival of Jesus on earth.  After Jesus accomplished all he had come to do he left our planet with the promise that he would return.  The climax of His coming is remembered in Three Special Days historically known as:

  • Maundy Thursday
  • Good Friday
  • Easter Sunday

This year we will again highlight the significance of each of these days with gatherings specifically designed to help us enter into the glory and significance of the Gospel.

On Thursday, April 13 we will eat a simple meal together remembering the Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples.  As part of our meal we will share in the Lord’s Supper which Jesus inaugurated on that Thursday evening long ago.  This highlight of the evening will be an exercise in humility and servanthood as those gathered will have the opportunity to wash one another’s feet. The service will being at 6:30 and we request those planning to attend to pre-register.

The following night, Friday, April 14, we will gather again and remember the darkest day in the history of earth: the day Jesus was unjustly condemned to die.  And yet, we call it Good Friday because no one took his life from him, he willingly laid it down for us (John 10:18).  Through scripture, song, and prayer we will reverently remember the price he was willing to pay because of his deep love for us.

Easter Sunday, April 16, we will have a joyful celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.  When Jesus rose it was the beginning of the New Creation.  Everything has now been made new.  We remember and rejoice.  Our time together will begin with a breakfast fellowship at 9:00.

At each of the three services we have asked Bill Ward to use the musical and songwriting gifts God has given him to bless us with some selected songs accompanied by an acoustic guitar.  The entire course of history was changed because of what Jesus did during these three days.  Join us as we remember, reflect and rejoice together!
