We’ll gather in the street at 11am, just like the crowds did way back when, welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem for that final time. We’ll sing and wave palms as we walk around the block, following our beloved donkey-friend.  Then we'll conclude our Palm Sunday service inside.  Afterwards, all are invited to congregational potluck in the parsonage.

GOOD FRIDAY (March 29)

5:00pm
Crosswalk

Join Pastor K and other pilgrims, as they process through Central Park and the Upper West Side carrying the cross.  This reflective and embodied ritual is a modern-day interpretation of the stations of the cross.  The pilgrimage ends with participants carrying the cross into our sanctuary in the midst of our service. 

Meet at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue across from the Plaza Hotel (look for the group with the 11 ft. cross).    

7:00pm
Good Friday Service
In person (Sanctuary) and on YouTube
Bulletin

 Join us in-person or on the livestream for a powerful worship service on Good Friday.  Our focus turns, on this day, to the mystery and awe of the passion, as we follow Jesus on the journey to his death on the cross.  We will listen for God’s voice from Golgotha together, guided by reflection, reading, song, and prayer.
