Holy Week and Easter

Holy Week and Easter

Maundy Thursday | April 6

7:00 pm Worship Service

Join us in the Sanctuary for a Maundy Thursday Communion Service followed by a performance of a seat-gripping musical tale of the crucifixion composed by the French Impressionist composer, Olivier Messiaen. This big organ work will serve as accompaniment to members of our Biblical Storytelling Team who will perform a dramatic pantomime of the Last Supper and Garden of Gethsemane.

Good Friday | April 7

7:00 pm Worship Service

Join us on Good Friday as we join a Seven Last Words of Jesus Service hosted by Unity Fellowship in Towson. The Service will include 5 congregations and will be held in the Trinity Episcopal Church Sanctuary at 120 Allegheny Ave., Towson, MD 21204. Pastor Tom will preach one of the seven words and our combined music team will provide a musical offering.

There is a small parking lot accessible from Allegheny Avenue. There is also a lot off Baltimore Avenue just north of Allegheny or you may use street parking along Allegheny Avenue.

Those who wish to carpool can meet at Govans in the big back parking lot. Carpools will leave at 6:30 pm sharp!

Easter | April 9

6:45 am Outdoor Sunrise Service

The Sunrise Service is an informal time to gather and celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. We will gather around the Columbarium behind the sanctuary along Orkney Road. We will sing a couple songs accompanied by guitar, hear the Easter story, and share our hopes for the new day. The service will be about 30 minutes.

9:00 am Worship Service

Join us as the band leads us in beloved Easter Hymns. We will read John’s version of the Easter Story and Pastor Tom will preach. We will have special gifts for the children and it will be a service filled with joy and celebration.

10:00 am Easter Egg Hunt and Petting Zoo

Search for Easter eggs and enjoy some in-person fun for all ages on the front lawn of the church with animals (rabbits and chicks and goats, oh my!) brought to you by Woodberry Crossing. The Easter bunny will stop by and we’ll retell the story of the first Easter together, as well.

11:00 am Worship Service

At the 11:00 am Service, the choir and organ will lead us in the Easter Hymns. Pastor Tom will preach on John’s version of the Easter Story. We will have gifts for the children and will rejoice together in the Resurrection of Christ.

All worship services will be in-person and broadcast on Facebook and Zoom. Please email us at wilson@govanspres.org for a Zoom link.
