Holy week is the last week before Easter, a time when Christians tell the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our Holy Week worship schedule will include:
Palm/Passion Sunday (March 25) Worship at 10 AM at Gravely Elementary School (4670 Waverly Farm Drive, Haymarket). Participate in the story of Christ’s last week – from his triumphal entry on Palm Sunday to his death on the Cross a few days later. Experience the power of how far God goes out of love for us.
Holy Thursday (March 29) Stations of the Cross and Open Prayer Space: Experience the story of the last days of Jesus through art and guided prayer. Come to the Old Bank Building (14951 Washington Street, Haymarket) any time between 6 AM and 8 PM on Thursday, March 29, for a quiet time to reflect on the death of Jesus through art and guided prayer. The experience should take about 15-30 minutes (depending on how quickly/slowly you do it), and can be done alone or in groups.
Good Friday (March 30) Service of Scripture, Darkness, and Song: Encounter the power of the last days of Jesus through an experiential worship service at 7:30 PM at the Old Bank Building.
Easter Sunrise (April 1) on the Roof: Greet the Good News of the Resurrection while overlooking the heart of Haymarket, 6:45 AM at the Old Bank Building.
Easter Sunday (April 1) Worship: Gather at 10 AM at Gravely Elementary School to worship and celebrate the Good News that even death cannot defeat the power of God’s love!
Easter Sunday (April 1) Free Pancake Breakfast and Petting Zoo: Celebrate the joy of Easter with the people of Haymarket Church! Beginning at 9 AM, we will host a free Pancake breakfast at Gravely Elementary School. After the breakfast (10 AM), we will celebrate the Good News of Easter in worship. And, immediately after worship, there will be a free Easter Morning Petting Zoo! Easter is a day for celebrating the wondrous joy of new life – and you are invited to step into that joy with us at Gravely Elementary School on April 1!
