Here is a schedule of what’s happening this upcoming Holy Week and Easter Sunday:

Jesus makes an entrance! Wave palm branches and sing as we commemorate the arrival of the Messiah to the city of Jerusalem.
Thursday 4/2 @ 7PM: Maundy Thursday communion and Tenebrae

Friday 4/3 from 12PM to 8PM: Good Friday Prayer Vigil
The church sanctuary will be open for prayer and candle lighting. Do you own thing–stay for as short or as long as you would like and take some time to draw close to God. Jesus died for you!
Sunday 4/5 @ 7AM: Easter Sunrise service, Bond’s Lake Park, Lower Mountain Road
Meet us lakeside as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus with a worship service and continental breakfast. Dress for the weather! In the event of freezing temperatures, we will have breakfast back at the church.
Sunday 4/5 @ 11AM Easter Worship
Christ the Lord is risen! This festive worship service features songs, scripture and communion and is the high point of the Christian calendar.
Every year is like a long race–how can you run with endurance to get the most out of the year?
By being a disciple of Jesus. He shows us how to live our lives to the fullest. [Jesus said] “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10, NIV)
By being a part of a great community like Hope Church. We love and support each other through good times and hard times. We get together a lot and get to know each other. “A friend is someone who knows all about you and likes you anyway!”
By serving your community and your world. Not sure how much you have to give? We can show you how to serve and the joy that comes with giving your time and talents to others in need.
