GOOD FRIDAY TENEBRAE SERVICE
April 15 at 7:30pm, Hybrid Format
The Good Friday Tenebrae service is an opportunity to sit with the growing darkness of Jesus’ arrest, condemnation and execution. The word “tenebrae” is Latin for darkness or shadows, and this is reflected in a service which progresses from dim light to total darkness amid prayer, music and waiting for the light of Easter Sunday. (Note: the darkness of this service may be unsettling to some young children.)
Saturday, April 16 from 10am-Noon
We will decorate the sanctuary in preparation for Easter and would love to have you join us. Come help turn our “sacred space” into a spring garden.
EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE
April 17 at 6am, Federal Hill Park
The sight of daylight breaking over Baltimore City is a spectacular backdrop to a simple service of witness to Christ’s resurrection. This year we will join with Light Street and Hunting Ridge Presbyterian Churches. Anyone who wishes is welcome to gather in Federal Hill Park at 6 a.m. for songs, liturgy, prayers and good news. Easter Brunch after the Sunrise Service at Light Street Presbyterian Church will be catered by Codetta’s Bake Shop.
EASTER WITNESS TO THE RESURRECTION
April 17 at 11am, Hybrid Format
At 11 a.m. we joyfully celebrate the resurrection in community. Music will be provided by the Chancel Choir and brass ensemble. Communion is served. Join us for light refreshment following worship. The education hour will not take place on Easter Sunday but will resume the following week.
