THE STORY OF HOLY WEEK
April 14 @ 11:00am

 

Holy Week is the week leading up to Easter. During this week, Christians the world over recall the events of Jesus’ last week of life. In this evocative service, we’ll hear the whole story of Holy Week in one shot, from the joy of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem to the darkness of the tomb in which his body was laid.
