Central Presbyterian Church

Lent and Easter 2019


March 6, 7pm

Come into the candlelit sanctuary to pause, to keep silence, to pray, to think about what it means to be truly human in the way of Jesus Christ, and to receive the bread and cup that will sustain us for the journey ahead.


March 10-April 14

Our Lenten Study, Cultivating and Letting Go, does not require homework and uses art as an important way of learning and connecting. Since Lent is traditionally a season when we give something up as a means for spiritual growth, this study invites us to ponder what God is cultivating in and through us, and also what we are letting go of to allow space for something new to grow.

Palm Sunday

April 14, 10:30am
Children’s Palm Processional and dramatic reading of the Passion Narrative according to Luke.

Featured will be the chancel choir and a smaller group of soloists singing 2 major works by the contemporary composer Arvo Part: his Summa and Stabat Mater. Summa was written in 1977, and is a setting of the Nicene Creed for choir. The Stabat Mater is a setting of the crucifixion from Mary’s point of view, and is written for a smaller group of voices and strings. Arvo Part’s music is extremely beautiful and very accessible. Please join us and bring friends who love classical music!

Faithful Tuesday

April 16, 12pm
Gather at the Capitol Building with other faith communities to witness for a just and moral economy, equity, and an inclusive community.  Hosted by the Interfaith Alliance

Holy Week Communion

During the last week of his earthly life, Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples and gave new meaning to the breaking of bread and sharing ofcup. Do this in remembrance of me. You’re invited to remember that “last supper,” as well as contemplating its significance as the Church gathers to celebrate Communion in smaller-group settings during Holy Week.  Everyone is welcome.
