March 25 | Palm to Passion Sunday & Parade
Begin Holy Week with our special Palm Sunday service that follows Christ’s glorious entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through his Passion on Friday. The service opens with palm branches waving and shouts of “Hosanna” but as the story of the passion unfolds, their shouts of joy turn to demands for his crucifixion; he receives a crown of thorns as he is handed over to be mocked and killed.
March 29 | Holy Thursday 7:00pm
Commemorate the day Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with his disciples and washed their feet. Later that night, he went with them to the Garden of
Gethsemane to pray. In the evening, we will experience the Last Supper with music, prayers and readings.
March 30 | Good Friday (12pm + 7pm)
In partnership with the Mid-North Church Council, North Church will host the annual Community Good Friday service at 12:00pm noon of intercessory prayers for our community, nation and the world. At 7:00pm, join us for our special service featuring A Service of Darkness which commemorates the suffering and death of Christ and is based on the ancient Tenebrae. It represents the darkness that fell over the earth as the Son of God was crucified. The seven choral meditations presented are based on the last words of Christ set to music by Dale Wood.
April 1 | Easter Sunday
Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with a joyful and festive worship experience. At 8:30am, we will have Holy Communion. At 11am, the Carolers will share special music along with music by the Cathedral Singers. Note: a special offering will be taken for the Global Interfaith Partnership (GIP). GIP is the united effort of congregations, schools and families from Indiana and the Chulaimbo region of western Kenya to respond to the needs of Chulaimbo’s vulnerable children. GIP, through its work in Kenya, has shown some impressive numbers. They feed 3,200 students per day in 18 primary schools in Kenya. With only 25 dollars and assistance from the local community, they can feed a child for an entire school year.
