Lent & Easter

"The Story" & Holy Week


Now that spring is here, we know that Easter isn't far away.  As we walk the path with Jesus to the cross of Good Friday and the empty tomb of Easter, Shepherd of the Hills is ready to support your spiritual journey this year with the following events.

First, our Bible Study, The Story, continues with the following chapters being studied on these Sundays...

Sunday, April 7, 2019 | Ch. 25 - Jesus, the Son of God | p. 353

Sunday, April 14, 2019 | Ch. 26 - The Hour of Darkness | p. 367

Sunday, April 21, 2019 | Ch. 27 - The Resurrection | p. 381

Sunday, April 28, 2019 | Ch. 28 - New Beginnings | p. 389

These chapters are discussed in our small groups during the week, which meet at the following times here at SOTH (NOTE: the Wednesday study times continue beyond Lent): 

Sundays at Noon | Mondays at 6 PM | Tuesdays at 2 PM

Wednesdays at 11 AM & 7 PM (Luncheon offered every Wednesday after the 11 AM study)

Then, for Holy Week we will have morning services on Maundy Thursday, April 18 and Good Friday, April 19 at 11 AM, with a luncheon following the Maundy Thursday service.

On those evenings, the choir has special music planned for us!  On Maundy Thursday, April 18 at 7 PM, John Purifoy's "Table of Forgiveness" will be shared, which brings the perspective of Jesus while at the Last Supper.  On Good Friday, April 19 at 7 PM, the choir will present a cantata with narrator Jim Heard and soloists Jim Marinangel, Bill Anderson, Dave Huddleston, Steve Arnold, Kathy Chamberlain and Nevie Gamble.  Joining them will be instrumental soloists Sylvie Calato (Cello) and Carol Jarzyna (Flute).

We'll have a traditional Easter Vigil service on Saturday, April 20 at 4:30 PM.  Then, on Easter Sunday, April 21 at 8 AM, 9:15 AM & 10:45 AM a full brass choir will join all of our musical ensembles for a joyous celebration that says, "Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!"

Be sure to join us for the end of Lent and the celebration of Easter here at SOTH!

God's peace and joy, Pastor Tom
