Good Friday
April 14th | Sanctuary | 7:00pm

Good Friday presents us with an opportunity to encounter the reality of Christ’s suffering and to walk with Him in his journey.

Holy Saturday
April 15th | Worship Center | 5:30pm

In the tradition of the early church, we will anticipate
and continue to wait on Christ’s resurrection by celebrating the baptism of adults and families in our congregation
who have never been baptized. The service will include a special Holy Saturday message. The service, with its
emphasis on adult baptism, will not be a duplication of our Easter Sunday services, but rather is intended to be a
unique event during Holy Week.
