Maundy Thursday, April 13
Informal Worship & Last Supper - 6:30 P.M.
Reclining at tables in the front of the sanctuary, we share a simple meal* reminiscent of the Last Supper and recall the "new commandment" of Jesus-to love as he loved-demonstrated when he knelt to wash the feet of his disciples.

*A simple meal is provided. Drop-ins are welcome, but if you know you are attending, email the Church Office

Good Friday, April 14
Procession of the Cross - 11:30 A.M.
We remember the crucifixion of Jesus 2,000 years ago and the ways he continues to suffer in our world today. As we walk through Park Slope, we lament war, poverty, injustice, racism, the destruction of the environment, and other social sins.
Passion Narrative & Tenebrae Service - 8:00 P.M.
Through prayer, vignettes, dramatic readings, and music, we tell the story of Jesus' final days, as the lights gradually dim to darkness. At the conclusion of the open-ended service, you are invited to stay and chant, pray at the cross, or meditate before heading out into a world that aches for resurrection and light.

Easter Sunday, April 16
Easter Celebration - 11:00 A.M.
The church undergoes a transformation from grim suffering to resurrection in a festive service of celebration and new life, with scripture, lively preaching, holy communion, hymns accompanied by brass and organ, and the spirited singing of our choir and an Easter ensemble. Join us!
