Holy Week and Easter at Grace Church

Join us this week as we celebrate the stories and mysteries that are at the heart of our faith. All are welcome. On Maundy Thursday, April 17 at 6:15pm, we will gather in the church undercroft for a service that includes a simple Agape meal, foot washing and a celebration of the Holy Eucharist in remembrance of Jesus’ Last Supper.  At the end of the service we will move into the sanctuary for a stripping of the altar in preparation for Good Friday. Our guest preacher will be The Rt Rev. Whayne Hougland, Bishop of Western Michigan. The service for  Good Friday, April 18, will begin at 7:00pm.  The sanctuary will also be open all day for individuals to come and pray through the Stations of the Cross.   The Easter Vigil on Saturday, April 19 begins at 8:45pm  in the side yard of Grace.  We’ll light a fire in the darkness and process into the Church by candle light to hear the story of God’s salvific acts, proclaim the Easter “Alleluia!” and celebrate Holy Eucharist.  A dessert feast will follow the service.  On Easter Sunday, April 20 at 10:30am we will celebrate the resurrection of Christ with a festive service of Holy Eucharist!  Childcare is available at all services.
