Palm Sunday

Passion / Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, a time in the church year when we remember how Christ gave his life in love for the world. A time of celebration and praise, shouts of “Hosanna!” and a crowd waving palm branches wanting to crown Jesus as king. Join FPCA by shouting praises and chanting psalms with a parade of palms. Join us ten minutes before worship at the Turquoise Tables to join the palm procession on this Palm Sunday.

Maundy Thursday

April 18, 7 pm

On Maundy Thursday we remember the new commandment that Christ gave us in word and deed as he taught us how to love one another, washing our feet as a servant. The Lord's Supper is also celebrated, remembering the meal Christ shared with his disciples before his death. 

Good Friday

A service of darkness and remembrance commemorating Christ's final hours. The service will be centered around Heinrich Schütz’s “Seven Last Words from the Cross.”
