This year’s Holy Week and Easter Schedule is as follows:
Palm Sunday—Sunday, April 14th: 9:00 am—Worship Service with the Confirmation of Hunter Griinke, Mason Hoenig, and Sidney Roser. This service will include the distribution of palms as we remember our Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
Maundy Thursday—Thursday, April 18th, 6:30 pm— Worship Service. On this holy night, we will recall our Lord’s final meal with his disciples in which he instituted the Lord’s Supper that you and I share as we receive his body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins. This service has “fallen on hard times” in our churches in recent years, but it is one of the most sacred and meaningful gatherings of worshipers during the Church Year. Please consider gathering with your Church family for this special service.
Good Friday—Friday, April 19th, 12 Noon through 3:00 pm— Worship Service. This annual service observed together with our LCMS sisters and brothers throughout the Stateline area will be held at Messiah Lutheran Church in Beloit (1531 Townline Ave., Beloit). As the Church keeps vigil at the foot of the Cross during the hours of darkness in our Lord’s Passion, we will hear sermons from the pastors of our churches and experience wonderful anthems presented by our choirs.
