Your Holy Week Celebrations!

As we approach the holiest time of the Christian calendar, we welcome you to your Holy Week celebrations. Below, you will find a brief description of each of our experiences.

 

Palm Sunday on March 24th – 8 AM, 9:30 AM, 11 AM

On this special day, we commemorate Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem, heralded by crowds waving palm branches and shouting, "Hosanna!" It is a joyous occasion that marks the beginning of our journey through Holy Week. There will be memorable and purposeful events for children and adults alike. There will be a brief procession and gifts from the church to the congregation to commemorate the beginning of Holy Week.  

 

Maundy Thursday on March 28th – 7:30 PM

This is a profoundly moving Tenebrae worship experience. As we gather in the sanctuary, we will solemnly observe the betrayal, persecution, and arrest of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the gradual dimming of lights and the extinguishing of candles, we will reflect on our Savior's sacrifice, culminating in the sharing of Holy Communion. This event will enhance your understanding and appreciation of the Last Supper and betrayal against our Lord Jesus Christ. *** This is an evening special that begins at 7:30 PM

 

Easter Sunday on March 31st - 8 AM, 9:30 AM, 11 AM

Holy Week culminates in the glorious celebration of Easter Sunday! Join us for special events, uplifting music, and additional festivities as we rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our regular schedule of worship will continue both in the sanctuary and fellowship hall, providing ample opportunities for you to encounter the risen Christ in the community. We will also have significant opportunities to engage with activities geared towards children, such as a special Sunday School Class and an Easter Egg Hunt in our courtyard.

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS OF OUR SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES…

 

8:00 AM - First Light (Sanctuary)

Our First Light service kicks off the Sundays with an intimate and casual gathering in our beautiful Sanctuary. Embracing traditional elements intertwined with contemporary insights, this service fosters a sense of community where participatory discussions are not only welcomed but encouraged. Let the uplifting music and warm fellowship set the tone for your Holy Week journey.

 

9:30 AM - Contemporary (Fellowship Hall)

For those seeking a more relaxed atmosphere, join us in the Fellowship Hall for our Contemporary service. Grab a cup of coffee and a snack as you settle in at our tables. Led by our dynamic praise band, this service offers familiar tunes you hear on the radio, creating an engaging worship experience that resonates with your spirit.

 

11:00 AM - Traditions (Sanctuary)

A treasure of time, our Traditions and worship experience are steeped in the rich history of our faith. Held in the Sanctuary, this service embodies the essence of traditional worship with piano, organ, chancel choir, and brass ensemble filling the air with heavenly melodies. Experience the beauty of responsive readings and hymns led from the pulpit of our historic sanctuary as we praise the name of the Lord together.

 

We extend a heartfelt invitation to all to join us for Holy Week at First Presbyterian Church of Eustis. May this sacred time of reflection, remembrance, and renewal draw us closer to God and one another as we journey together in faith. Let us be of good courage and know that we are loved. This church is a community where God is exalted, Christ is treasured, and the Holy Spirit is embraced.
