Holy Week & Easter

Holy Week is sacred time extended: a pilgrimage in time through the story of Jesus  loving ministry, his sacrificial choices and his stunning resurrection.

 

Peace United is a lively center of spirit and activity throughout the week.  And we welcome you to join us for an event, a service or simply an hour of quiet prayer and reflection.

 

May you find grace and peace in this holy time!

TUESDAY, MARCH 22

7 pm to 8:30 pm in the Sanctuary

 

The sanctuary is open, meditative music plays and seekers walk the silent circuits of a beautiful canvas labyrinth.  Come as you're able, when you can, and practice Holy Week mindfulness with friends at Peace.

A SERVICE OF FOOTWASHING & COMMUNION

THURSDAY, MARCH 24

7:30 pm to 9 pm in the Sanctuary

With Peace United's "Chancel Choir"

 

In a way, all of Lent is preparation for this: for the servant's choice of lovingkindness.  On Maundy Thursday, we gather to celebrate communion, as Jesus did with friends the night before he died.  In addition, some choose to kneel before others and wash their feet.  (Even if you choose not to participate in the washing, come to watch, pray and give thanks!  It's the spirit of our care for one another that counts!)

A GATHERING OF SONG & LAMENTATION FRIDAY, MARCH 25

7 pm to 8:30 pm in the Sanctuary

With "Jazz On High"

 

Note: a special dinner for all ages precedes the Good Friday service at 6 pm...RSVP to Yael by email or phone (426-2010)

A FULL IMMERSION BAPTISM SERVICE

EASTER SUNDAY, MARCH 27

7 am at Natural Bridges State Park Beach

 

Come to Natural Bridges to welcome the Day of Resurrection!  Lori Rivera and Art Alm are on hand to lead us in praise and song.  The story comes to life as we rise up to hopeful living and heart-felt prayer.  AND: several will be baptized in the great Pacific itself!

HOSTED BY THE YOUTH OF PEACE
