Our Lenten journey to the cross culminates in the holiest week of the year.  Join us for these special worship services as we celebrate the passion of Christ and the victory of Resurrection.

MAUNDY THURSDAY – (April 13) Jesus chose to spend his final hours sharing the Passover meal with his closest disciples and entered into a new covenant with humanity while giving them one last command to love one another.  Join us as we gather to commemorate the Last Supper with dinner and communion. 6:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church.

GOOD FRIDAY – (April 14) On this darkest day of the Christian calendar, we will reflect on the last hours of Jesus’ life with a service that brings us through the events leading up to Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.  7:00 p.m. at First UMC Blairstown.
