Holy Week Worship Services

Holy Week at Ascension is the highlight of our liturgical year as we remember the death of Jesus and celebrate his resurrection together on Easter Sunday. Please join us for one or all of our special services in Holy Week!

Palm Sunday, April 14 at 9am and 11am
Both of our services will feature a Palm Processional and a dramatic presentation of the passion narrative. Childcare is provided for ages 4 and younger. Kindergarten through grade 5 will be with their parents for the service. Please arrive early as the Palm Processional begins our service!

Maundy Thursday, April 18 at 7pm
The worship of Maundy Thursday is rich in symbolism and will include washing of feet and the dramatic stripping of the altar in preparation for Good Friday. The service concludes in total darkness. Childcare is provided for ages 4 and younger. Kindergarten through grade 5 will have a special themed program in the Hunt Rooms.

Good Friday, April 19 from Noon – 3pm
Because these are the hours Jesus hung on the cross, we encourage worshippers to keep vigil for the entire three-hour period, but the service will easily allow people to spend any one hour (Noon, 1pm or 2pm) without loss of continuity. There will be children’s ministry for all children (infants to grade 5), available for all three hours (Noon, 1pm and 2pm). Please feel free to drop off your children for all three hours, or for any one or two of the three hours.
