Join St.C's Micah Intern, Hume Jamison, beginning Thursday, May 9th at 6:30pm as we kick off a new 6-week Bible Study!

NOOMA is a series of short films that explore the world from the perspective of Jesus. The videos are produced by one of the nation's most popular Christian authors & speakers, Rob Bell. Each week Hume will present a NOOMA video for 10-12 minutes, followed by a discussion that considers the implications for our relationship with God and the world. We will examine a range of topics, from the spiritual practice of daily prayer to the most basic human action of breathing. NOOMA is an invitation to search, question, and join the discussion. Questions? Please contact Hume.

From the NOOMA website: Jesus lived with the awareness that God is doing something, right here, right now, and anybody can be a part of it. He encouraged his listeners to search, to question, to wrestle with the implications of what he was saying and doing. He inspired, challenged, provoked, comforted, and invited people to be open to God's work in this world. Wherever he went, whatever he did, Jesus started discussions about what matters most, because for Jesus, God is always inviting us to open our eyes and join in.

One of the most emotionally charged services of the year, the service begins with joy and ends in sorrow.

Maundy Thursday, March 28th at 7pmFoot Washing w/Eucharist:  Maundy Thursday traditionally begins the triduum, or three holy days before Easter. The word maundy comes from the “new commandment” (mandatum novum) for the followers of Jesus to love each other as Jesus loved us (Jn. 13:34). One of the most visually symbolic services of the year, the liturgy includes a reenactment of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet. It also commemorates the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper. The service ends with the stripping of the altar to symbolize Jesus’ journey to the Garden of Gethsemane.

Eric will again offer one of the reflections. 6pm, Stations of the Cross:  This year we introduce a new Holy Week service at St. C's as we prayerfully journey with Christ and meditate on his sacrifice for us. The service consists of meditations and prayers at 14 "stations" representing specific events on Christ's journey toward the Cross. 7pm, Seven Last Words w/String Quartet:  Franz Joseph Haydn’s dramatic musical portrait The Seven Last Words of Christ will be performed at St. C’s by a live string quartet at a special Good Friday service.
