HOLY WEEK SERVICES
Maundy Thursday: April 17th
Service with communion and foot washing: 7pm
All Night Vigil: 8:30 pm – 7:30 am
During the Maundy Thursday Service we find ourselves present at the Lord’s Last Supper to receive Jesus’ Great Commandment: that we love one another as he loves us. Jesus humbles himself and washes our feet. Will you follow him?
On the night before he was betrayed Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray and asked his friends to stay awake with him. When they failed miserably our Lord asked: “Couldn’t you keep watch with me for one hour?” Join us as we keep watch with our Lord on the evening before his death on our behalf. Sign up at coffee hour.
Good Friday: April 18th
9:30 am JCAM Stations of the Cross
in the Bergen Area of Jersey City, beginning at
The corner of Bergen & Lexington Ave.
with Bishop Beckwith, other Faith Communities
And the Jersey City Police
During the Stations of the Cross we follow our Lord through his trial, crucifixion and death. Please join Bishop us as we pray at thirteen outdoor stations where violence has occurred in Jersey City over the last year.
Good Friday Service, 7:00pm
During the Good Friday Service we bear witness to the crucified Christ and this darkest of all days and we join with all suffering people as Jesus casts his lot with them.
Holy Saturday: April 19th
The Great Vigil of Easter, 7:30 pm
Some women came to mourn at Jesus’ tomb. They were shocked when they found the stone that sealed the tomb rolled away and Jesus RISEN! Holy Saturday captures that moment—the moment that begins with hopelessness and ends with ecstatic Easter joy. Come hear the story of God’s relentless love for us from the dawn of creation through Jesus’ conquest over the power of death. This is the holiest service of the Christian year. BRING BELLS TO RING!
Easter Sunday: April 20th

Once again the church sings “ALLELUIA!” Christ is raised from the dead and we are free to be fully alive! Join us for the biggest party of the year followed by an Easter egg hunt in the church yard.
