LENT & HOLY WEEK AT ROSE CITY PARK PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
This year we will share our Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday worship services with Rose City Park United Methodist Church. Please note that Ash Wednesday will be at Rose City Park Presbyterian and Maundy Thursday will be at Rose City Park United Methodist.
For three Wednesdays in Lent we are offering a simple supper and worship experience to enhance your Lenten spiritual practice. Please note the time of the simple supper and the worship experiences, and come for one or both. More information will be shared in the Sunday bulletin. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak with either Chris Hyde or David Dornack. We pray that you will experience a holy and meaningful Lent in 2014.

Palm & Passion Sunday Worship, April 13th
We end Lent and begin Holy Week with Palm & Passion Sunday.

Maundy Thursday Worship, April 17th
We will come together at Rose City Park United Methodist Church (5830 NE Alameda St.) at 6:45 p.m. for a simple supper and then at 7:30 p.m. move to a service of worship to include communion. We remember that it was on this night that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and established the ceremony of the Lord’s Supper. This worship experience will prepare us to celebrate Easter and the Lord’s resurrection three days later. Rev. David Dornack and Rev. Chris Hyde will deliver the evening message.
Easter Sunday, April 20th
Join us for a joyful communion worship service as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Enjoy special music featuring our instrumental musicians and Chancel Choir.
Please remember to bring flowers on Easter Sunday to add to our flower-filled cross. Our individual flowers, when put together, make a beautiful addition to our worship service. Just as our Lord told us that we are all parts of One Body, come and see how your single contribution becomes part of the whole cross. The Rev. David Dornack will deliver the Easter message
