Music, Prayer & Communion
We remember the last supper celebrated by Jesus and his twelve disciples.
In these service we will recount the dramatic action of Jesus as he washed his disciples’ feet. Each mini-service will be held in the Garden Room and conclude with the celebration of the sacrament of Holy Communion in obedience to Jesus’ command to “do this in remembrance of me.”
GOOD FRIDAY TENEBRAE- April 19 @ 7 p.m.
“Tenebrae” is the Latin word for “shadows.” This solemn service of worship recalls the passion of Jesus through scripture and song as the power of darkness and shadow seemingly grows. The Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church Choir will lead us in worship as we listen, remember and meditate on the seven last words of Jesus spoken from the cross. Nursery care is available for children 0-36 months.
EASTER SUNDAY- April 21 @ 9 & 10:30 a.m.
Christ has risen us! Join us to celebrate the resurrection and the HOPE it promises.
Our two identical services will feature inspiring music and this powerful message of hope. Jesus has defeated our greatest enemy, death, therefore there is nothing that we face in life that should paralyze us with fear or that should cause us to lose heart. Join us for this engaging hour of worship. Nursery care for children 0-36 months is available.
