Even though we are scattered this year we still want to find ways to celebrate this most important week in the year of the church. While we will be going online for all of our services, we are continuing on with many of our Holy Week traditions. All services will be streamed via Facebook live. Here is the link to the Facebook Page. Note that you can access the church’s Facebook page without having a Facebook account since it is a public page. It will prompt you to sign-in or sign-up but you can just click “not now.”
Here is the plan for Holy Week at LVCC during the Covid-19 crisis:
- Maundy Thursday: Pastor Phil will be hosting his weekly contemplative reflection on Thursday this week. He will be live-streaming on Facebook and reflecting on Jesus’ final meal with his disciples before his arrest. This will be a short time for reflection and prayer as we kick off Holy Week. Here is the order of service so you can follow along with the prayers and songs: Maundy Thursday Live Stream
- 24 Hour Prayer-Vigil: We will be hosting our annual 24-hour prayer vigil from 8pm Thursday to 8pm Friday this week. This year, however, we will not be opening up the chapel for prayer, but instead, ask you to find a place to pray in your own home. To sign-up for an hour of prayer please e-mail pastor Phil at email@example.com, or sign-up on this shared google doc form: Prayer Vigil Sign-Up . Here is a prayer guide you can use for your hour of prayer:Prayer Vigil Guide
- Good Friday: At Noon on Good Friday pastor Dave will be leading an interactive reflection on the final words of Christ via Facebook Live.
- Easter Sunday: We will be live-streaming our service at 9:30 am. This will also be on the church Facebook page. We will also embed a link at the top of our home page which will prompt you to click to watch. This will be activated right at 9:30 a.m. This will lead you right to the live stream video. We also will have the cross outside the sanctuary and you can come and place a flower on the cross at any point after 10:30 a.m. If you do come please practice social distancing (6 feet apart) and do not congregate with others.
In the midst of all the challenges we are up against in this season let’s turn our hearts to Jesus and journey with him on this Holy Week!
