7pm Worship and Communion on Zoom

Prepare communion at home (wine & bread, juice & crackers, tea & scones, milk & cookies, whatever works for you). We will remember Jesus' last gathering with his disciples and share this holy meal in small groups, just as we do in our Sanctuary.

7pm Tenebrae Worship on YouTube.

We commemorate the darkest night of the liturgical year, as we reflect on the seven last words of Jesus during his execution, with contemporary and historical images of the ways we travel these stations in everyday life. This is a powerful, moving, and provocative worship experience.
