Holy Week at Rock Spring 

Sunday, April 10  Palm Sunday 

Our Cup Overflows with Justice

10:00 a.m. in person and online

Thursday, April 14 Maundy Thursday 

7:00 p.m. in person and online – Traditionally, the passion of Jesus has been linked to his violent execution on Good Friday. However, it is at the Last Supper that Jesus shows us a multitude of meanings for this special word. Jesus’ passion for his closest friends and confidants is shown by the washing of their feet. His passion overflows in a new commandment given just for them.  This Maundy Thursday we will meditate on what it means to live a life full of passion and how a passionate life can overflow into compassion for ourselves and others. Communion will be offered.

Friday, April 15  Good Friday 

7:00 p.m. in person and online – This service marks Christ’s death on the cross and the ongoing places of lament in our world and our lives. Worship will include prayers, Scripture, poems, music and meditation, with space for silent reflection. Indigenous art depicting Christ’s journey to the cross will also be shown.
