Virtual events during Holy Week

Observing and remembering Jesus' journey to the cross in the week before Easter


In addition to our regular Sunday services, the COVID-19 pandemic keeps us from gathering for Holy Week. Nevertheless, our Council has found ways for us to observe this special time together, and on this page you will find a list of all our 2020 Holy Week happenings. May God bless you as we remember the Passion of Lord, and we hope that you will spread the word and invite others to join us as we look forward to the joys of Easter.

During our Social Distance Worship gathering we will remember Christ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem where people cried Hosanna as they laid palm branches at his feet.

Story Stones

Painted stones that tell a story

This year Anja Knöpfli, one of our parishioners, is painting story stones to illustrate the events of Holy Week. Each morning we will feature one of these stones with a Bible reading and a special prayer that can be used as a devotional while observing the days of Holy Week. Many thanks to Anja for sharing her artistic gifts!
