This Week at Bethel
Holy Week and Easter
A familiar African-American spiritual asks a series of questions:
“Were you there, when they crucified my Lord?
. . . Were you there, when they nailed him to the tree?
. . . Where you there, when they laid him in the tomb
. . . Were you there, when God raised him from the tomb?”
During Holy Week, we are there. We walk with Jesus into the depth of darkness and abandonment and death, and then into the dawn of new life on Easter day. In Holy Week we experience the depths and heights of life.
Our worship experiences on the “Three Days” of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter form one continuous service. We proclaim through word and sacrament, hymns and prayers, that our lives are hidden with Jesus, in whom we die and rise again.
Maundy Thursday worship with Holy Communion is at 7 p.m.
Good Friday worship is at 7 pm.
Easter Sunday worship is at 10 a.m.
The Community Good Friday service on Christ’s “Seven Last Words” is at Rolling Meadows Community Church from noon to 3. The Bethel Lutheran Choir and Pastor David are providing music and a reflection on the third word.
Note: There is no adult education class on Easter Sunday. The class resumes on April 27.
