From the Pulpit & Loft

We have entered what many Christian communities call Holy Week, the time on our worship calendar when we remember Jesus’ final days before his death on the cross.  Our Holy Week began on Palm Sunday with the Logos children’s musical “The Singing Bishop,” an account of the writing of the hymn “All Glory, Laud and Honor.”

Holy Week and Easter have many rich traditions at GPMC.  Our Maundy Thursday service is an intimate experience in Barbour Chapel as we remember Jesus’ last meal with his disciples.  Our Good Friday services retell the story of the crucifixion in story and song, with more hymns and a sermon at 12:15 and the full choir and anthems at 7:30 p.m.  There is childcare for the midday service.

Sunday morning comes early as members and friends celebrate the resurrection of the body with our Empty Tomb 5k Walk/Run.  We also have a 6:45 a.m. sunrise service by the lake, which includes communion.  It is followed by a brunch prepared by the Henry family.  

The main morning services includes communion, a sermon, a brass quartet and our full choir.  This year the choir is singing the Hallelujah Chorus.  As always, members and friends are invited to bring cut flowers from home for our flowering cross.

Easter Sunday concludes with a vespers service at 5 p.m.  This smaller, 45 minute, more intimate service is a chance to draw a breath at the end of a full day and to specifically remember loved ones who have died, focusing our hope in the resurrection for them.  

A complete list of Holy Week and Easter schedule of services is here.  We look forward to welcoming you to worship or any other event soon.



Children are always welcome in worship at GPMC.  Free childcare for infants and toddlers is available every Sunday morning during worship and Sunday school. Young Children and Worship, a special program for children ages 3 through 2nd grade, is offered on Sundays at the earliest  service.  A children’s sermon is offered at both services.
