Holy Schedule for 2015 at Church of the Messiah

March 30th, 2015 by sjl+

Holy Week begins this Sunday with the Procession of Palms on Palm Sunday, but it won’t be over until we finish celebrating Easter Sunday afternoon. Don’t miss any of these amazing worship services!

We will not have a service on Wednesday night, April 1.  That’s because we are getting ready for…

Maundy ThursdayThursday night, April 2, at 7 o’clock, we will observe Maundy Thurday.  This is the annual service where we commemorate Our Lord’s Institution of the Lord’s Supper, Washing the Feet of the Disciples, and ultimate Betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane.

SunriseOur celebration of the Feast of the Resurrection begins at 6:45 with a Sunrise Service on our property on St. Johns Bluff Road (click HERE  for a map).  This moving service begins in darkness and candlelight and concludes with the light of the first day shining down on us as we celebrate the Risen Lord by partaking of His Body and Body at the very break of day.

Be sure to invite your friends and family to each of these special events in the coming week!  Church of the Messiah has created a Facebook event for each of these services.  You can go to the events by clicking on their names and invite your friends via Facebook or other Social Media!  Childcare is provided at all services.
