4/9/20 – 7:00pm Facebook Live – Join us on Thursday for a Maundy Thursday service. Jason will start at 7 pm with Facebook Live and then will direct you to the link to watch the pre-recorded service. We will explore the significance of Maundy Thursday through music, art, and the Word. Pastor Elyse Nelson Winger will provide the sermon. Printable worship bulletin.
4/10/20 – 7:00pm Facebook Live – Join us on Good Friday for a Tenebrae Service (Service of Shadows). In this service we follow Jesus to the cross through the Passion according to Saint John, read by members of Good Shepherd. With each step closer to the cross, we enter more and more into darkness. This is symbolized by the extinguishing of candles. As the candles are extinguished, one remains – the “Christ Candle.” Then this candle is removed, leaving us in darkness, symbolizing the apparent victory of the powers of darkness as our Lord suffers death. The restoration of the “Christ Candle” is a foreshadowing of the Resurrection. We invite you to participate in the lighting and extinguishing of the candles at home while you watch the service. You will need 7 candles. As usual, Jason will start us off with Facebook Live at 7 pm and then direct you to the link to watch the pre-recorded service.
4/12/20 – 9:00am Facebook Live – EASTER – Celebrate the resurrection of Christ with your Good Shepherd Family!
