Palm Sunday, April 13, 2014, at 11:00 a.m.
Our festive Palm Sunday services will feature a traditional “Procession of the Palms” by the children of PPUMC, and the children’s choirs performing special music for this holy day. This service marks the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates Jesus’ triumphant arrival to Jerusalem.
Maundy Thursday, April 17, 2014, at 7:00 p.m.
Participants of the PPUMC Student Outreach Ministry will be leading a very special worship service commemorating Jesus’ Last Supper and the washing of the disciples’ feet. Music, liturgy, and the message will all be presented by the youth of our church. Christina Moreno will deliver the message.
Good Friday, April 18, 2014, at 7:00 p.m.
The Music Ministry of PPUMC will present a Tenebrae Service, which will include a combination of scripture readings, congregational hymns, vocal solos, and choral anthems coinciding with the story of the passion, crucifixion, and death of Jesus. This powerful service will feature the extinguishing of a candle at the end of each reading until darkness is reached, at which time the congregation is asked to depart in silence. This service represents the temporary extinguishing of the light of Christ from this world, preparing us more fully for the brilliance of Christ’s resurrection.
