Selah | May 10-12

SELAH is Open Door’s community-wide retreat
intentionally designed as our family vacation together.

SELAH is a rest, a pause, a breath. 

SELAH is about getting away, laughing,
eating, learning, exploring and relaxing
with friends and family from Open Door.

(Registration Deadline this Sunday, April 14!)

Holy Week is coming!

Palm Sunday (April 14)

On this day, we remember Jesus entering Jerusalem to cheers and praise, knowing that these crowds would turn and that betrayal walked alongside praise. We remember the image of Jesus entering in triumph. We remember we are not to fear: Rescue is coming.

Join us at 3:30 for The Joy Collective in the courtyard at St. Paul’s.

We’ll gather for worship at 4:30PM as we celebrate Palm Sunday!

Maundy Thursday (April 18)

On this day, we remember the last meal Jesus shared with his disciples. We remember Jesus was betrayed by his friend. We remember Jesus taking on the role of a servant by washing his disciples’ feet.

Good Friday (April 19)

On this day, we remember the pain of death. We remember the depth of love made real on the cross. We remember we are not alone when we feel all is lost. We remember the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Join a Stations of the Cross experience & one of the Good Friday Neighborhood Tables across the East Bay.

Holy Saturday (April 20)

On this day, we remember the followers of Jesus: scattered, confused, dismayed. We remember Jesus buried in the ground. We remember faith is the evidence of things unseen. Some call this the Great Sabbath and plant seeds, trusting life to spring forth.

Resurrection Sunday (April 21)

On this day, we celebrate Resurrection. Life is stronger than death, and Freedom has been unleashed on the world. We remember that Rescue is here.

Begin the day with our Sunrise Hike! Join us on Resurrection Sunday for our annual Sunrise Hike! 

End the day with our Sunset Joy Collective! From 6:00-7:30 PM in the courtyard at St. Paul’s, we’ll celebrate Resurrection with music, food, dancing, art, & games!
