This is Holy Week, the days which lead up to the most important day of the year for us, Resurrection Sunday! Given our social distancing, we want to fully live into the gifts of worship and community this week offers us. Please see the calendar below for the times and links to each of the services, beginning on Thursday and running though Sunday morning. Many of you, including our children and youth, will lead us this week. I hope you'll join us for each of these services as we remember our Lord's death and resurrection.

- Pastor David
