Our churches celebrate Holy Week

Holy Week, lasting from this Sunday, April 9, to Saturday, April 15, is the “heart of the church’s ritual, theological and missional life. Everything we do in worship, doctrine and mission springs from this week.” Discipleship Ministries has worship resources, including its “Through Death to Life” series. Details.

Many of our Eastern PA Conference churches will celebrate this special week in creative, inspirational ways, through prayer and worship, Christian education and spiritual nurture, community feasts and fellowship, and even some fun, including the usual Easter egg surprises. Visit our special Local Church Lenten Events page to learn more.

Also visit our Flickr photo page and enjoy an album of photos from Berwyn UMC’s 2016 Prayer Stations of the Cross.  Last year on Good Friday, the church decorated its entire sanctuary with artistic, inspirational prayer stations arranged to symbolize Jesus’s cross-bearing journey to Calvary. This year Berwyn invites all to come journey in guided prayer and meditation along the Way of the Cross on any day of Holy Week and ending on Good Friday, April 14.

Come at any time during the day, alone or with a friend, to explore prayer stations representing the final week of Jesus’ life, where “He gave himself over to death; so we know that God is with us even unto death. We are not alone.” Berwyn UMC is at 140 Waterloo Avenue, Berwyn. Contact the church for visiting times at (610) 644-5555 or office@berwynumc.org.
