Holy Week and Easter

Sanctuary, Smith Worship Center, & Meditation Garden

Posted: 3/4/2019

As Lent draws to a close, worshipers turn their thoughts to Jesus' final days before his resurrection on Easter Sunday. For Christians who observe it, Holy Week is a solemn time of worship. But at the end of it comes Easter Sunday — the celebration of Jesus' rebirth and defeat of death. This week of mourning tells a story of immense loss, but it leaves worshipers with the message of hope and Easter’s joyful celebration.
