Holy Week 2023

What is true humility?

Holy Week begins on Sunday, April 2 with Palm / Passion Sunday, where there is only one truly humble person in the story: Jesus the Christ. You are invited to carry this theme of humility through to Easter.
Every day, in each story, look for the one you regard as humble. Think about: Why did you think that particular person is humble? And then reflect on yourself, how does your humility compare?

Look for growth in people’s characters. Are there characters who seem to gain or lose humility in the course of the story from the triumphant entry to the resurrection?

We recorded devotional videos for you to watch Monday, then Tuesday, and Wednesday (April 3-5) on our website under News. Then we have services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Saturday Easter Vigil, Easter Sunday Sunrise service and of course Easter service.

Use this time. A deep and meaningful understanding of humility is a worthy and lasting gift to take away from this season of Lent and the celebration of Easter.

Come on the ride, the ups and downs, all of it, and let it change you. Amen.

What we used the hula hoops for!

Here are the hula oops!

If you were wondering what we are doing with the hula hoops during Lent, the secret is out! We are using them as a hanging mobile for our weekly Lenten Services.

We have a cutout of an image for the theme of the evening and color it and write our thoughts and prayers on it.

Atonement already had a Lenten service, look at one of the mobiles with the cutouts! And Piedmont Valley has their mobiles ready to go for this Wednesday, March 8.

See you at Piedmont Valley at 5:45 for soup supper and 6:30 for the service! Or next week at Atonement again, same times.

Compassionate God,

give courage and faith to all who mourn, that they may have strength to meet the days ahead with steadfastness and patience; not as those who are without hope, but in thankful remembrance of your great goodness, and in the joyful expectation of eternal life in your presence, with those they love; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
