Holy Week

Walking through Jesus’ last days with him

You can’t learn the mystery of Jesus’ death without performing it. During Holy Week, Jesus is walking towards his death and we are walking with him.

Sunday, April 10
Palm Sunday

Join us as we welcome our Savior as King, as we inaugurate his Kingdom. We will greet him with palms as we declare “Hosanna,” which means “Help Us!”

Jesus receives a woman’s love and worship as his anointing for burial. We enter this poignant story of intimacy and boldness. Join us at First Presbyterian Church of Germantown or on Zoom

Stations of the Cross and Tenebrae

Stations of the Cross – 12pm-3pm

This is a meditative prayer walk with Jesus to the cross. We do this in the neighborhood to help ourselves see the way of suffering love moving into our present reality. We want to enter into this way with Jesus in our time and place.

Tenebrae – 8pm

On the evening of Good Friday we gather together in darkness (In Latin, “Tenebrae”) to reflect on the death of Jesus like the disciples did after the crucifixion. Through a solemn remembrance using art and music, we reflect on Jesus last words on the cross in a room that steadily darkens, and symbolically enter the quietness of the tomb.

In the Grave

On Holy Saturday we’re focused on the death of Jesus where love and hatred meet and Love stays true. It’s the last and longest wait. The wait through death for the third day.
