2018 Holy Week Services

 

Passion/Palm Sunday Worship Services

March 25th at 8:15, 9:30, and 11:00 and 11:11 am Word and Worship (Overholt Hall)

Holy Thursday Communion Service

March 29th  at 7:30 pm

Numerous oil lamps illuminated the darkened room as well as the faces of twelve men gathered in the home of Benjamin.

Together they came to celebrate Passover with their Master as they had done for three years.  These men traveled the countryside with Him, prayed and ate with one another, laughed and dreamed with one another. They were His chosen disciples. They witnessed first-hand how His inspirational message reached the masses.  They also witnessed numerous miracles. Tonight would be their last night together.  What was it like sharing the Passover with Jesus? What were His final teachings?

Hear and watch as the Last Supper is re-created in word and song by members of DUMC.

Music will also be provided by the Sanctuary Choir and soloists.  The one hour service will conclude with Holy Communion.

Good Friday Tenebrae Service

March 30th  at 7:30 pm

Through scripture, meditation, and candles, this service recalls the Passion story of the last week of Jesus’ earthly life. As the scriptures and meditations are read, and hymns and music offered, there is a diminishing of light brought on by the gradual dimming of sanctuary lights and the extinguishing of candles. We sit in silent darkness following the crucifixion reading.
