Holy Week & Easter Community Events

Due to the observance of these holidays, community programming will take the place of dedicated Young Adult programs for these two weeks. All are encouraged to join us - regardless of where you are, or aren't, in your own personal faith journey. Just Come & See!
Sunday, March 25: Palm Sunday: An Evening Walk Through Holy Week
Join us for this special worship event beginning at 4:00pm

Our observance of Holy Week begins with the triumphant procession of palms. Recall the moment when Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem with a blessing of the palms, jubilant procession, and hymns of praise. Gathered around a communal table, we will share a lovingly prepared meal, of Seder-inspired foods, sharing the Eucharist during the meal, just as Jesus did with his friends during their last supper together. Our service continues with a symbolic foot washing* as we gather around the table. Deb and Pastor Emilie will wash the feet of all who are gathered while the congregation pauses to meditate on the example Jesus so expressly left with his friends. After supper the table and the altar are stripped and all who wish are invited to join in a one-hour silent candlelight vigil remembering Jesus' arrest, trial, and crucifixion. All leave in silence.
Sunday, April 1: Easter Sunday - The Feast of the Resurrection!
Join us for this special worship event beginning at 4:00pm

Worship with us as we begin this joyful fifty-day season with a celebration of Jesus' Resurrection! Join us for a traditional, liturgical worship service, wholly adapted to the needs of the Emmaus community. Come as you are. Come in your weekend clothes. Come in your Easter best. Come young or old. Come "energized" by the bunny's sugary treats or tired from the week's schedule. Just Come & See! Following the service, join us for an Emmaus favorite: a traditional, uplifting service followed by a "coffee hour" of British tea and homemade scones and clotted cream! And, children of all ages are invited to join in the search for treat-filled Easter eggs - which will continue to appear throughout this fifty-day long season!
