Come experience the heartbreak and hope of Holy Week with a number of unique worship opportunities.

Thursday April 2

6:30 pm at the Port Road Community Garden

Join us for this Maundy Thursday service as we meet and clear a path in the woods for our Good Friday service. Maundy Thursday is the traditional day in the church calendar when we get our hands dirty and live into Jesus' command to serve and love others -- part of that is caring for creation. So come ready to get dirty. Wear work clothes! And then we'll have a brief service of Holy Communion in the garden.

(watch for signs and turn left onto a dirt driveway off Boyer's road and park in rows in the field)

Friday April 3

6:30 pm at the Port Road Community Garden

Good Friday is the evening we mark the sentencing, trial and death of Jesus. As we gather, we'll meet at the grove right next to the Community Garden and will walk through the Stations of the Cross together. It should last about an hour and will be a powerful, moving experience.

Sunday April 5 

Sunrise service at 6:30am at the EJC Arboretum (formally known as the JMU Arboretum) followed by a second service at 10 am also at the EJC Arboretum.  
(with breakfast served between services)

After all the snow and bitter cold of winter, we wanted to be outside as much as possible this Easter! So join us at the EJC Arboretum for our Easter celebration. Come and experience the beauty of God's creation!
