During the season of Lent (which comes from the old English word for the "lengthening days" of spring) we anticipate the celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday.
At Prince of Peace we will build up to that Easter celebration first with a special service on Maundy (Holy) Thursday (April 13) at 7:00 pm where our attention is focused on the events of the Last Supper of Jesus with His disciples.
Next we will shift our attention to the events of Good Friday and the crucifixion of Jesus with a special service (April 14) at 7:00 pm.
Finally, we will gather for worship on Easter morning (April 16) at 10:30 am to celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord!
Please consider joining us for any or all of these special services!
Pastor John Kassen
During the Sundays in Lent, beginning March 5, the worship theme will be "Encounters with Christ". Our focus each week will be on the characters who encountered Jesus, such as Andrew and Philip, Mary of Bethany, Malchus, Simon of Cyrene and Salome. Pastor Kassen will share a video conversation with each character followed by comment.
On the Wednesdays in Lent, beginning March 1 with Ash Wednesday and ending March 29, we will focus attention on the "Seven Last Words of Jesus Spoken". Each week we will look at one or two of his last words and what they mean for us. Worship will begin at 7:00 pm, preceded by a potluck meal at 6:15 pm. These services will last approximately 30 minutes.
Holy Week at Prince of Peace will feature three special services:
Maundy (Holy) Thursday at 7:00 pm featuring the Rite of Confirmation and First Communion as we focus on Jesus' last supper with His disciples.
Good Friday at 7:00 pm featuring solemn readings and music in the darkening church as we focus on the crucifixion of Jesus.
The Resurrection of Our Lord on Easter Sunday at 10:30 am where we celebrate the living Christ.
