Holy Week at Incarnation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palm Sunday

Sunday, April 14

 

On this day we begin each service with the Liturgy of the Palms outdoors (weather permitting).  We’ll ask God to bless the branches of palm and then we’ll wave them and shout “Hosanna” as we recall Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

 

The tone changes as we hear a dramatic reading of the entire passion gospel taking us through the events of Jesus’ arrest, trial, and death on the cross.

 

Our schedule for the day will be:

8:30    Liturgy of the Palms and

    Holy Eucharist Rite I

10:00         Interdenominational Liturgy of the Palms and

    Procession

10:30  Holy Eucharist Rite II

 

And so we begin the journey to the cross.

 

 

 

Maundy Thursday

Agape Meal , Passover Eucharist, and Stripping of the Altar

Thursday, April 18 at 6:30pm

 

We begin this evening with an Agape Meal, a shared feast of love.  Bring your offering of bread, cheese, fruit, or olives and wine or grape juice.  We’ll gather in the hallway and feast together.

 

Our service places Jesus’ Last Supper in its context as a Passover meal.  We’ll talk through the steps of the seder, noting at which points Jesus gave new meaning to the bread and wine.  And we’ll share the Eucharist just as Jesus’ original disciples did that night.

 

As the meal ends, we’ll remember Jesus’ arrest and torment by stripping the altar.

 

 

 

Good Friday

Interdenominational Service

Friday, April 19 at Noon

 

We’ll gather at Incarnation with our brothers and sisters from Limestone Presbyterian, Buford Street United Methodist, and St. Paul’s Lutheran to mark the day of Jesus’ death.  We’ll hear John’s version of the passion gospel, pray together about our complicity in Jesus’ death, and make our devotions at his cross.

 

 

 

Good Friday

Tenebrae

Friday, April 19 at 6:30pm

 

Tenebrae is the Service of Shadows.  We’ll hear readings and meditations based on the Seven Last Words Jesus uttered from the cross.  With each word, the light of Christ will be snuffed and another nail driven into the cross.  After the final word, there will be time for each of us to come make our devotions at the cross, either by praying silently or by driving another nail in.  The service ends in silence.

 

 

 

Easter Day

Festive Choral Eucharist,

Covered-Dish Brunch, and

Easter Egg Hunt

Sunday, April 21 at 10:00am

 

We’ll celebrate Christ’s resurrection in one glorious service all together.  There will be sweet-smelling lilies, floating banners, bells to ring out on the “Alleluias,” and a fun, interactive sermon.  Afterward we’ll share a covered dish brunch together, so be sure to bring something to share.  And while the adults linger over dessert, the children will run around the playground hunting for Easter eggs.  Be sure to bring your child’s Easter basket to hold their loot!
