Tenebrae: The Service of Shadows

March 30   |   6pm + 8pm

Tenebrae is Latin for 'shadows' and is a specific service dating back to the fifth century that focuses on the events leading up to the death of Jesus on the cross. The purpose of Tenebrae is to vividly portray the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of Jesus's final hours through seven dramatic readings of Scripture. After each reading we gradually descend into complete darkness as we follow Jesus into the tomb.

Lumen Christi: The Service of Light

April 1    |   8:30am + 11:15am

On Sunday we will return in the same way we left – we will enter into the darkness of the tomb as we begin our worship service. The good news of the resurrection is portrayed through light flooding back into the sanctuary as we ponder the death of Death in the raising of Christ our Lord. 

 


Come hear the Story.
