Join Us Holy Week

Bolton Hill neighborhood clergy conduct the 2015 Palm Sunday service in the park.

Our Schedule 


Sunday, March 20
Palm Sunday
Palm Procession, 9:45 am
Worship, 11 am

We gather with our friends from Corpus Christi Catholic Church and Memorial Episcopal Church for an annual neighborhood Palm Procession.  Meet in the park on Park Avenue just north of McMechen Street at the fountain at 9:45 am.  Our traditional education hour will not take place this Sunday. Instead enjoy a special coffee hour after the parade. Worship is at 11:00 am.


Sunday March 20, 5:30-8 pm
“Palm Sunday” Night Live 

Our monthly gathering for middle and high school youth will focus on the Passion.  Why do we call the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Passion?  How does it relate to what we are passionate about in our own lives?  Join us for dinner, games, and conversation.  


Tuesday, March 22, 7:00 pm
Taize Prayer Service

A service of prayer featuring music from the Taize community and periods of silence.


Maundy Thursday, March 24, 5:30-7:15 pm

A simple meal of soup, salad, and bread is served at 5:30 followed by a contemplative worship experience, communion is served.  There is no charge for this meal but we do need volunteers to help provide the meal.  Share your favorite soup,  salad or bread with the congregation.  Choir rehearsal will begin at 7:30 pm.  Childcare for infants and toddlers is available for this service upon request. Please contact Rachel Cunningham if you can help with the meal or would like childcare.  So that we may have an approximate head count, please RSVP by March 22 to [email protected] or (410)523-1542 Ext. 14.


Good Friday, March 25, 7:30 pm  

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 the 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, March 26, 10 am-Noon
Easter Decorating

We will be decorating the Sanctuary in preparation for Easter and we would love to have you join us.  Help turn our “sacred space” into a spring garden.  Many hands make the job go even faster.


Sunday, March 27, 6:30 am
Easter Sunrise Service, Federal Hill Park

Join us as we partner with Light Street Presbyterian Church for a sunrise service in Federal Hill. The sight of daylight breaking over Baltimore City is a spectacular backdrop to a simple service of witness to Christ’s resurrection. Gather for songs, liturgy, prayers and good news.  


Sunday, March 27, 11 am
Easter Worship Service

At 11:00 am we joyfully celebrate the resurrection in community. The education hour will not take place on Easter Sunday but will resume the following week. Childcare for infants and toddlers is available. Communion is served.
