Holy Week – Reflecting on the Cross through Music

 

After the excitement of Palm Sunday, our music follows Jesus during his last days, from the Passover supper to his submission to God’s will in the garden, to his betrayal, trial, and crucifixion. 

 

 

Maundy Thursday

Special music “Remember Me” records Jesus’ last supper with the disciples.  The disciples are shocked when he tells them one of their own will betray him.  But their shock turns to lethargy in the garden. It seems they still don’t get it.

 

Good Friday

The Handbell Choir begins our Good Friday worship with a dramatic arrangement of “Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley.”  The Sanctuary Choir sings “Deep Were His Wounds and Red” and “Were You There?” at the close of a day that is surely a “black Friday,” and yet…

 

 

“Forsaken and forlorn, he hung there in our place.
But all who would from sin be free, look to his cross for victory.”

 

Worship and reflect with us this Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm.
