Join us for Holy Week as we take the final steps of the lenten journey together and reflect upon the events of Jesus’ final meal with his disciples, his arrest and crucifixion, and culminating with our celebration of his resurrection on Easter Sunday. Below is a schedule and and brief description of each of our Holy Week services. We hope to see you there!
Maundy Thursday – COME & EAT
Thursday, April 18, 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Communion plays a central role in our worship at Ecclesia Clear Lake, and this Maundy Thursday service is a special celebration of communion and community. Join us around a handmade table, under the majestic oak tree on our front lawn for a service that reflects upon Jesus’ final meal with his disciples. This Holy Week event will set the stage for Good Friday and Easter as we share a meal, read excerpts from the Gospel narrative, and celebrate communion together. The whole neighborhood is invited to come & eat!
Good Friday – The Shadow of The Cross
Friday, April 19, 6:30 – 7:30 PM
As we gather to reflect upon and commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus, we will journey through the darkest final chapters of the Gospel of John. This service features scripture readings and hymns by candle light that grows darker as we draw nearer to the cross. Come and experience this “deep breath” with us, as we prepare for the exhale of Easter Sunday.
Easter Vigil at Sunrise – Awaiting the Resurrection
Sunday, April 21st at 6:00 AM
Join us as we gather by firelight for a time of scripture reading, waiting, and anticipation of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Easter Vigil has roots in ancient Christianity and is a time of rich remembrance and celebration as the sun rises on Resurrection Morning. (A light breakfast will be served immediately following the vigil.)
Easter Sunday – Christ is Risen!
Sunday, April 21st at 10:00 AM
Join us for our celebration of the greatest moment in history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ! At Ecclesia Clear Lake, we celebrate Easter with songs, teaching, communion, and baptism! All of Holy Week has been leading up to this moment, and it’s going to be an exciting time of celebration and worship.
