After Ash Wednesday, the weekly evening gatherings will change to Thursday evenings and be held in the lower level church classroom across from the library. 

Maundy Thursday begins with a 6:00PM light soup and salad potluck supper held in the upper level Great Room. At 7:00PM we transition to the church sanctuary for a worship service that includes the office of the Tenebrae (reflection of darkness and shadow).

Good Friday offers a self-guided meditation and reflection space in the sanctuary from 9:00AM until 5:00PM. Helpful materials are available at the doors.

  EASTER 

Outdoor Sonrise Worship Service: Offered as the sun rises (times vary according to the time of year), this service is held at the top of Castle Hill (near the bench). Bundle up in hats, coats, and gloves to participate in this communion celebration of the glorious morning!  Following the service, there is a continental breakfast waiting in the church's Great Room fellowship hall.

10:00AM Indoor Sanctuary Worship Service: Easter morning in all its glory is celebrated with a full traditional service that includes special musicians. Following the service the congregation is invited to a time of fellowship and refreshments in the Great Room.
