Holy Week 2016

Hello there!  Here’s a description of the opportunities to recognize Holy Week here at United Church of Norwood!

Palm Sunday Worship- 10am:  Join us for a special time as we recognize Christ’s Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem.  We’ll have a guest presentation about missionary work in Asia, a very special Kids Connection Time for nursery, elementary & middle school.  That will conclude with a family rally time as parents pick their kids up.  As always, worship will be followed by coffee time in Veno Hall.

Wednesday Bible Study 6:30pm:  Come join us as we reflect on the gift of the redemption found in Christ at our weekly Bible Study in led by our Pastor in Veno Hall following the Open Door Meal.

Maundy Thursday Reflection Time 6:30pm:  OUr Sanctuary will be open for a time of quiet reflection and communion will be available from 6:30-8pm.  Stop in for a few minutes, or the whole time!  Here’s what a member of our congregation said after attending our Ash Wednesday reflection time, “Last night I sat for an hour in a quiet sanctuary and at one point thought about sacred moments. I was reminded that doing laundry for a sick friend is sacred space. Holy ground is not some magical space, it is wherever we live as the body of Christ. May we do small things with great love for such is the kingdom of God”

Good Friday Worship 7pm:  Join us as we come together to recognize the sacrifice Jesus made to demonstrate to us the depth of the Lord’s unconditional love for us.  This will be a time of music, scripture reading, and reflection.

Easter Sunday Celebration Worship 10am:  Join us as we come together to celebrate the hope that’s found in the resurrection.  The sanctuary will be adorned with beautiful flowers, there will be wonderful musical offerings, we’ll have a special program provided for our kids, and an encouraging message from our Pastor.
