Tenebrae Service of Shadows-April 1st 7:30pm

09 Apr 2020 | 07:30 pm - 08:30 pm

The Tenebrae Service, which will be preceded by Holy Communion, is an adaptation of an early Fourth Century Worship Service. Literally meaning “Shadows” or “Darkness”, this Service of Shadows utilizes sacred scripture and music to interpret the Passion (suffering) of Christ. The gradual extinguishing of candles symbolizes the growing shadow of the crucifixion looming over Jesus and his isolation in darkness as his disciples desert him. The congregation is invited to leave the church in silence, reflecting on our Savior’s suffering, loneliness, and death for our sakes.
