You are invited to join us as we celebrate Easter together.
Palm Sunday - April 1
Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week and commemorates Christ's triumphant arrival in Jerusalem to the cheers of the crowd. The children will enter the sanctuary with palm branches and singing.
Maundy Thursday - April 5
The Maundy Thursday Worship Service begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Through scriptures, special music and the celebration of the Lord’s Supper we will remember that last meal that Jesus shared with his disciples on the night before his death. Child care is available in the lower level of the education building.
Good Friday Walk with the Cross - April 6
Again this year the Christian community of Mint Hill will gather at noon at Mint Hill Baptist Church and walk with the cross to the Mint Hill town square. We will stop at various points along the way to read scripture and pray. This is a time when the larger Christian community acknowledges that the oneness we have in Christ is greater than denominational divisions.
Good Friday Worship Service - April 6
The "Tenebrae" Service of Darkness begins at 7:30 pm. Tenebrae is a Good Friday service that is rooted in antiquity. The word "tenebrae" is Latin for "shadows", and during the service there are seven shadows by which we remember the death of Jesus. Child care is available in the lower level of the education building.
Easter Sunday - April 8
The Easter worship services will be a wonderful celebration of Christ’s resurrection. Through scriptures, hymns, special anthems by the Sanctuary Choir and the Bell Choir we will praise God for the gift of life that is ours in Jesus. Child care is available in the lower level of the education building.
