Gifts abound in small congregations, but there are resources we do not have and sometimes miss. While we have been fortunate to be served by talented pianists, and beautiful music is a weekly part of worship, our congregation has not had a choir in a number of years. When a neighboring congregation with an abundance of musical ensembles invited us to worship with them on Palm Sunday for a music-centered service, our congregation said an enthusiastic “Yes!”
Holy Week is the ideal time to gather together in Christian community to hear again this powerful story that we share. It begins, after all, as a commemoration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem where the Jews had gathered for the Passover. It is fitting for us to be with our whole community in Holy Week, through the twists and turns, the highs and lows.
We will gather in our space for Easter, partaking in traditions we have come to love and look forward to, but if you come looking for us at other significant moments and find our sanctuary resembling the empty tomb, know that we are venturing out in this Holy Week to worship with others who proclaim God’s promises with other gifts, in other settings. This can be a powerful way to hear the story anew. If you wish to join us, times/locations are below:
