Lent and Holy Week 2023

Lent is a season of reflection and turning to God. Opportunities to worship and reflect as a community beyond normal Sunday worship services are listed below. All events are at 2208 Winchell Ave except for Maundy Thursday.

Movie nights, March 1, 15, & 29, 7 pm – Movie in the church office, followed by a short discussion. Movie titles will be announced in the Sunday bulletin. (in-person only)

Taize Prayer Services, March 8 & 22, 6:30 pm – Contemplative service of prayer and chanting. (in-person only)

Maundy Thursday Love Feast, April 6, 6 pm – We will join Skyridge Church of the Brethren for their traditional Love Feast with a light dinner, communion and foot washing (optional). Please RSVP @ office@phoenixchurch.org.

Good Friday Worship, April 7, 8 pm – We cannot afford to ignore the darkness in our world. This service recounts the tragedy of the last hours of Jesus’ life through scripture and music while modern readings remind us of the evil and despair that still exists in our world today. This evening we sit with the darkness, yearning for the light that returns Easter morning. (in-person and zoom)

Easter Sunrise Worship and Breakfast, April 9, 7 am – Short outdoor service followed by breakfast (available until 8:30 am). Sign up at church to bring a dish. (in-person only)

Easter Worship, April 9, 6 pm – Christ is Risen! Come and celebrate! (in-person and zoom)

During this time of Covid, we ask that everyone try to follow these guidelines for our in-person services.

  • If you feel sick, please join us online instead of in-person. To join our worship services via Zoom, contact the church office for the connection information.
  • We encourage everyone to be vaccinated.
  • We encourage everyone to use their own best judgement on whether to wear a mask or not.
  • Please respect others’ personal space. If you want to hug, please ask permission. Don’t assume the other person is comfortable with hugs even if you know they’ve been vaccinated or if you’ve hugged them in the past.
