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 Mark.
The traditional services have been adapted for online
and "at home" worship and reflection.
Maundy Thursday, April 1, 7:30 p.m.
The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper
Mark 14: Jesus' last supper, arrest and Peter's denial;
readings from Howard Thurman's Meditations of the Heart
Vocal music by Joseph Krohlow
“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.
Good Friday, April 2, 7:30 p.m.
A Service of Tenebrae
Mark 15: Jesus' trial and crucifixion
Vocal music by Colleen Brooks
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.
Holy Saturday, April 11, 7:30 p.m.
The Great Vigil of Easter
In-Person Easter-Eve Procession
An in-person, silent procession of light around and through the church building,
reflecting the scriptural and sacramental traditions of the Easter Vigil.
