Holy Week at First Presbyterian

Come join us at First Presbyterian as we celebrate Holy Week!

Heart Labyrinth - All week in the church yard at the corner of South Claiborne and Octavia 

The labyrinth will invite you to take a meditative journey into the heart of God during this week in which God’s heart was laid bare for us all. If you are someone who finds your mind wandering when you try to pray, this labyrinth may help you experience prayer in a new way. It will be constructed in the side yard (pumpkin patch) for the whole week. Come as you are able.


Palm/Passion Sunday - March 25th at 11:00 am

We will begin our worship with the waving of palms and the hosannas of the children’s choir, then will move into a dramatic reading of the Passion narrative from Mark’s Gospel.


Maundy Thursday - March 29th at 6:00 pm

Meal and Communion in the Sanctuary. We will worship around tables in the sanctuary, beginning with a simple meal. We’ll share communion with one another, then have a service of diminishing light, ending in the darkness of total abandonment that Jesus experienced on the cross. Donations accepted for cost of dinner.


Good Friday - March 30th from 12:00 pm-3:00 pm

Reflection, Prayer, Labyrinth. The bare Sanctuary will be open for prayer and reflection. Readings will be provided for individual use and a labyrinth will be set up at the back of the sanctuary.


Easter Egg Hunt - April 1st at 10:15 am in the playround

Children are invited to hunt for hidden Easter Eggs at 10:15 am. Bring an empty basket, and your children and grandchildren for the fun!


Easter Worship - April 1st at 11:00 am 

Give thanks for the resurrection and the promise of new life it offers! Worship will include joyous music and a celebration of communion.
