Stations of the Cross experience.

Good Friday
March 25th | 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. Join the Adult Choirs of Grace Avenue as we remember where Christ has suffered and where he suffers today in a moving service of worship. The choir will present the beautiful Lenten Canticles by composer John Leavitt.

Holy Saturday
March 26th | 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.
