WUWM Holy Week & Easter Invitation

Immanuel observes the “Triduum,” meaning “three days.”

The three services leading up to Easter unfold the story of Jesus’ betrayal, crucifixion, and resurrection.  This year’s story comes to us from the Gospel according to Matthew.

The traditional services have been adapted for online

and "at home" worship and reflection. 

Maundy Thursday, April 9, 7:30 p.m.

The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper

The Passion according to Matthew, Chapter 26

Zoom live audio at 7:30; recording posted on the website by Friday at noon.

“Maundy” Thursday gets its name from the Latin word for “mandate,” and it refers to Jesus’ commandment that we love one another as he loves us.  It is Immanuel's practice to read one of the gospel accounts of the last night of Jesus’ life, his last supper and his betrayal.

A Service of Tenebrae

The Passion according to Luke, Chapter 27

Recorded only and posted on the website at noon.

A rather dramatic service, the account of the crucifixion is read and sung, candles on a black-draped candelabrum are extinguished.  At the conclusion of the service the Sanctuary is dark except for the Christ candle.  It is an acute experience of the suffering wrought by human sin,

and a call to forgiveness and hope.
