St. Michael’s Church, Hamburg
April 14: we worship at 10:15 a.m. to celebrate Palm Sunday. We commemorate Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem before his crucifixion. As Jesus rode into the city on a donkey, the Jews gathered around him, throwing cloaks and palm branches on the road and exclaiming praises. We will have blessing of palms in the church and then process forward to receive them. It is a worship service filled with all the pageantry of Christ’s entry into Jerusalem. Children will conclude the procession with streamers, palms and a song.
April 18: Holy Thursday, we celebrate at Salem U.M.C., Shoemakersville with Holy Communion at 7 p.m. Churches in Hamburg, Shoemakersville and Tilden Township participate. All are invited. We commemorate the institution of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, on the night before Jesus Christ was crucified. Worship concludes by stripping the altar bare of its linens and candles. Like the first Christians bereft of Jesus and mourning the two days after the crucifixion, the church stands unadorned until Easter.
April 19: Good Friday, we worship at 7 p.m. Churches in Hamburg, Shoemakersville and Tilden Township participate and will join us at our church building. A joint choir will sing. The Tenebrae service recreates the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of the events of Jesus’ death. The story is left unfinished, because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.
