Journey With Us Through Holy Week

  • Lutheran Church of the Resurrection

PALM SUNDAY 8:00 AM Service of Holy Communion. (We will not have a processional but palm branches will be available.)

PALM SUNDAY 10:30 AM  The children will hear the story of Palm Sunday and lead us in a Procession with Palms before joining Haley in the Nursery for Sunday School. The service moves from celebration to the story of Jesus' arrest and crucifixion followed by Holy Communion. 

MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE AT  7PM  ON APRIL 13TH

Maundy means "commandment" and on this night Jesus commands us to "wash one another's feet" -- to serve one another as he has served us and he invites us to the table of bread and wine to receive a new covenant of love. At the end of the service we strip the altar and worship space of all adornment and exit in silence.

Puccini Requiem performed by Kathryn HIlger, viola soloist.

GOOD FRIDAY TENNEBRAE SERVICE AT 7PM ON APRIL 14TH

We enter and exit in contemplative silence to accompany Jesus from the Garden of Gesthemane to the Cross.  Tennebrae is Latin for "shadows" or "darkness."  The service begins in light with many candles and gradually fades to darkness as we hear again the story of Jesus' arrest, crucifixion and burial.

COOKIES FOR FIRST RESPONDERS -- SERVICE EVENT ON 9/11

  • Lutheran Church of the Resurection

COME & JOIN THE TEAM!

Hey! I’d love your help with my upcoming Thrivent Action Team:   Cookies for First Responders

WHERE:  LCR,  9100 Mission Rd., Prairie Village, KS 66206

REGISTER NOW

“GOD’s WORK. OUR HANDS SUNDAY” is an annual opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. This year’s day of service takes place on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2011, terrorist attacks on the United States. Our congregation will be saying "Thank You" and giving back to our local first responders by baking and delivering cookies following a joint 9:30 A.M. church service that morning. (A perfect opportunity to include neighbors and friends!)

Volunteers will also take home frozen cookie dough (provided by the church and paid for by THRIVENT) before hand, bake it on Saturday evening and bring the cookies to church morning of Sept. 11th. We have a LOT of chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie dough to share!!!

Families with children are encouraged to bake their cookies at the church as an inter-generational service project. We'll have the ovens, dough, and cookie sheets ready. Simply scoop the dough onto the pans and bake. Once the cookies are cool enough you'll box them and take a box to deliver to a fire or police department.          

We will also make our own greeting / thank you cards (card stock & markers) and pack the baked goods into gift boxes for delivery. Delivery Teams will be formed to take the boxed cookies and cards to Fire and Police stations in our area.  LUNCH AT CHURCH

ONE COMBINED WORSHIP SERVICE AT 9:30 A.M

COOKIE BAKING / CARD MAKING / PACKING AT 10:30

LUNCH AT THE CHURCH & COOKIE DELIVERIES FROM 11:30 -- 1:00

For more information please contact me at 913-649-0438 or pastor@lcrpv.org.

Grace and peace be with you!
