TW3: The Events of Holy Week
On Monday, April 10 and Wednesday, April 12, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, follow the events of Holy Week from a modern media perspective. The video Dateline Jerusalem presents news reports of the events of Holy Week simulated as if they occurred in our modern age of instant news. News Anchor Martyn Lewis and correspondents report breaking news of Jesus’ temple cleansing, tax debate, arrest, and crucifixion in sound bites that often reveal their own misinformation, biases, and preconceived notions. Deacon David Baughman and Rev. Amy Peeler will lead discussion on the videos as well as a presentation on the meaning and celebration of Passover.
Children’s Good Friday Passion Presentation
On Friday, April 14, at 10:00 am the children of St. Mark’s present a passion play for an audience of all ages. An egg hunt in celebration of Christ’s resurrection follows immediately, on St.Mark’s property. Open to all kids through grade six. All friends and family are welcome and encouraged to attend!
