Holy Week Services
Thursday, the 18th, at 7:00 p.m., come to a service of Holy Communion and Tenebrae, as we read the Passion from the Book of Mark as the church gradually darkens. I'll be giving a homily. It's a moving, if somber, service - please invite friends
Good Friday, the 19th, from 12-3 p.m., at Oxford Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Gowan and Stenton, (come when you are able, leave when you must) we will have a joint worship service with neighboring Presbyterian Churches focused on the "Seven Last Words," of Christ. It is a time to hear seven different reflections on the Word and to be led in prayer by varied musicians. At 3:00 p.m., Oxford will host a reception afterwards.
Easter Sunday, the 21st we will have two Easter services: a "Sunrise" service at 7:00 on the lawn -- hear the Easter Story as John tells it, pray and sing together -- and our Celebration Worship at 10:00. Special music, beloved hymns and a sanctuary full of Lilies will mark our celebration!
Easter Egg Hunt immediately following 10:00 service on Easter Sunday!
If you are 55+, join us on Tuesdays at noon in the parlor for homecooked food and wonderful conversation. We welcome cooks! You may make a main dish, salad or dessert and bring ahead of time. Please speak to Elder Diner Team Anne Glass, Hector Badeau, Dave Rupp, Sandra Dorsey or Debra Lockwood, if you would like to help.
