A Guide to Holy Week

Palm Sunday

Saturday, April 9 @ 5 PM & Sunday, April 10 @ 8:30 & 10 AM

Sunday before Easter. Celebration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Often observed with palm branches or palm crosses. At Good Samaritan we will often go through elements of the Passion Story, which is Jesus’ journey to the cross.

Holy Thursday

Thursday, April 14 @ 7:00 PM
Fellowship Hall

Thursday before Easter. Commemorates the Last Supper and the (Mandate/ command) that Jesus gave his disciples to love and serve one another. At Good Sam we will often have a meal to commemorate the Last Supper as well as communion with a focus on the message to love one another as Christ has loved us.

Good Friday

Friday, April 15 @ 12:00PM & 7:00 PM (Only 7pm will be live-streamed)

Friday before Easter. Most solemn day of the church year. Observes the day Jesus was crucified and died. At Good Sam we often worship with a service where we remember the last words of Jesus on the cross and move to an ending where the tomb is closed and we meditate on the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
Please note: Our evening service will be held in person and will be available via livestream on Facebook

Easter Sunday

Saturday, April 16 @ 5:00 PM & Sunday, April 17 @ 6:00, 8:00, 9:00, & 10:30 AM
Egg Hunt @ 10:15 AM
Easter Breakfast from 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM

Hallelujah! Christ it Risen. This is the most celebratory day of the entire year in the church. We celebrate Christ’s victory over the grave and remember the life and hope that brings into our lives as well. At Good Samaritan we add additional services to help create lots of opportunities for people to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ.

Trailblazer Experience
Sunday, April 10 – Friday, April 15
Fellowship Hall

The Trailblazer Experience is an invitation into a prayer journey through the meaning and message of Lent. During the experience, you’ll be walking the same path Jesus walked, leading to his death. Take your journey through the Stations of The Cross the week of Spring Break, April 10-15. The experience will be open (M-F) 9:30AM – 4:00PM and during Sunday & Holy Week services.

The Stations of the Cross is a historic tradition that originated from the Via Dolorosa, a procession in Old Jerusalem that is believed to be the path Jesus took from Gethsemane to the tomb. The Stations of the Cross made its way into churches around the world as a common way of participating in, and learning about, the suffering of Christ and to reflect on the meaning of Good Friday.
