HOLY WEEK -2016

holy week2Holy Week is the high point of our worship. This week is totally focused on God’s great exchange – Jesus taking our sin and human limitations and giving us God’s eternal life and salvation.

Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem as         Messiah, Savior, Lord, and King, and the surprising twist Jesus gives to the notion of King.

Maundy Thursday literally means “commandment” Thursday – Jesus giving us a new commandment in the Lord’s Supper that we are to love others as God loves us. This marks the end of Lent by receiving individual absolution.
Begins a three day worship of Jesus’ death and resurrection (there is no benediction, greeting, or dismissal on Maundy Thursday or Good Friday since it is all one worship service that does not end until Easter Sunday).
Good Friday  is “good” because of God’s act of love and salvation in God dying for us.
Easter Sunday is the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. As Jesus is raised so we shall be also.
