Holy Week April 9-16, 2017

March 29, 2017–Holy Week will offer a number of opportunities for worship, fellowship and spiritual renewal at Central Presbyterian Church (CPC).

Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, a time in the Christian year when believers remember how Christ gave his life in love for the world. The Gospels record Jesus entering Jerusalem in triumph, greeted by a palm-branch waving crowd that wants to crown him king. But as the story of the passion unfolds, their shouts of praise turn to demands for his crucifixion; he receives a crown of thorns as he is handed over to be mocked and killed.

Darkness turns to Light as Easter Sunday brings joyful, world-changing news: “He is Risen!”

CPC invites you to come reflect and worship:

Sunday, April 9: Palm Sunday Worship* Procession of Palms

During Holy Week a cross with a purple drape will be placed in front of the church. Then on Easter Sunday, members of the congregation are invited to gather blooming flowers and bring them to church to place on the cross. Flowers may be placed on the cross during the sunrise service and throughout the day. Romans 6:4 says “that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
