Holy Week

Worship at 8 & 10:30. The 10:30 service will include a parade with our children!

Worship at noon in the chapel and 7 p.m. in the nave. Foot-washing, Holy Communion and the Stripping of the Altar bring us into the midst of Jesus’s last days.

7 a.m.Stations of the Cross – we walk, pray and sing our way around the Grace Campus marking the traditional 14 “stations” of Jesus’ Passion. A beautiful and solemn way to begin this Holy Day.

Noon – Good Friday Community Service, hosted by Otterbein United Methodist (corner of N. Queen and Clay Sts). Pastor V will be preaching one of the 7 meditations on the Seven Last Words of Christ.

7 p.m – The reading of the Passion of St. John and Adoration of the Cross, choral music, and prayer.

6 p.m…start in the parsonage yard with a small bonfire and lighting the new paschal (resurrection) Candle…the first proclamation of Easter for the new season, epic readings from the Jewish Scriptures, music, all moving us toward the celebration of Holy Baptism!

Worship at 8 & 10:30

At both the 8:00 & 10:30 a.m. services, our choirs and brass adorn this festive celebration of the heart of Christian hope and faith. 

An Easter breakfast will be offered between services in the Nolt Auditorium. We are providing beverages. Please bring fruit, breakfast pastries, or a breakfast casserole to share. If you have any questions please contact Molly Rowen at yoohoomollysue@yahoo.com
