Easter Sunrise Service | April 21 @ 6:27 A.M. | On Easter Sunday morning, we will rise with the sun at our sunrise worship service. Our Easter sunrise worship service allows the people in the Scottsville community to gather early in the morning to worship our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The gospel writers tell us that Mary Magdalene and some of Jesus’ other female followers went to his tomb early in the morning Sunday morning. They went to grieve and to tend to Jesus’ body, as was the custom at the time.

When they arrived, they found the stone rolled away, and the tomb empty. Later, they would learn that Jesus, who was crucified, is alive.

Coming to worship on Easter Sunday at an hour and place different than we normally do, offers a sense that something unexpected has happened. Where there appeared to be no hope, there is now hope. Where there was death, there is now resurrection!

Palm Sunday Service | April 14 @ 11:00 A.M. | Palm Sunday, sometimes known as Passion Sunday commemorates the beginning of the passion or suffering of Jesus leading to the crucifixion. We begin with the triumphant arrival of Jesus into Jerusalem and finish at the foot of the cross. Join us as we reflect on the last week of Jesus’ life and prepare our hearts for the joy of his resurrection.

Guided Meditations | April 18 & 19 from 9:00 A.M. to 5 P.M. | You are invited to drop-in our Sanctuary building to experience self-guided stations. These stations will guide you through meditating on scripture related to holy week. Meditate on Palm Sunday and the events leading to Jesus’ trial. Recount the Upper Room’s foot washing and Last Supper and experience Jesus’ journey to the cross.

We recommend allocating about 30 minutes to properly experience this. Pastor Brian will be available in his office throughout the day to offer prayer.

Good Friday Service | April 19 @ 6:00 P.M. |One can’t truly experience the joy of the resurrection without first experiencing the turmoil and sadness that comes on Good Friday.

A Service of Tenebrae, or “Darkness,” is based on a twelfth–century late night/early morning service and is an extended meditation on the passion of Christ. Come and be moved. All are welcome to attend and experience this powerful service.
