holy week 2019
“He is not here. He’s risen as he said.”
Join us as we celebrate our Risen Savior throughout Holy Week!
Sunday, April 14 – Worship celebration, 10 a.m.
A Christian feast held the Sunday before Easter, commemorating Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. (Matthew 21:1-11) According to the Gospels, Jesus rode into the city on a donkey and the crowds celebrating, laying down their cloaks and tree branches in the road, singing “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Maundy Thursday (Last Supper)
Thursday, April 18 - Dinner, 6:30 p.m.; communion service, 7 p.m.*
Jesus’ mandate (from the shortened form of mandatum in Latin, or “commandment”) was delivered during the Last Supper: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another” (John 13:34).
*If you and your family are joining us for the Maundy Thursday, please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friday, April 19 (observance)
On this day, we commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary (Mark 15:25-37). This sacrifice – the ultimate sacrifice – covers the debt of humanity’s sin and reconciles our relationship with God.
Last Day of Lent
Saturday, April 20 (observance)
The purpose of Lent is the preparation of believers for Easter through prayer, penance, repentance of sins, and almsgiving. This 40-day period of self-sacrifice and reflection commemorates the days Jesus spent fasting in the desert (Luke 4:1-13) before he began is public ministry.
*During the Lenten season all TLC members are asked to save $1 per day. This $40 dollar offering (on top of your regular tithes) will be collected Easter Sunday.
Sunday, April 21 – Worship celebration, 10 a.m.
“He is risen! He is risen, indeed!” Easter Sunday, or Resurrection Sunday, marks the day Jesus rose from the dead. Three days following his crucifixion, Jesus’ resurrection marks the triumph of good over evil, sin and death. (John 20:1-18)
“Because He lives, you can now live!”
