The Service of the Shadows at the Church. The Service of the Shadows takes us on a journey as Jesus meets with his disciples in the upper room and on to the garden of Gethsemane to prepare to go to the cross. It is a solemn service filled with gripping images from The Passion of the Christ, moving music provided by the Sanctuary Choir and the Handbells, and communion. This service will prepare your heart for the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross on Good Friday and ultimately for His resurrection on Easter Sunday! You will want to make this very moving service a part of your Holy week worship experience.

Kids’ Maundy Thursday Service – 4/17 

7:00 p.m. during the Service of Shadows. This special service for children 3-years-old through 4th grade will include a Seder meal like Jesus and His disciples would have had in the upper room. Sign up at the Children’s Welcome Center or through the church office (732.7618)


Community Good Friday Service – 4/18 

7:00 p.m. We are privileged to host this year’s Lincoln Area Ministers Association Community Good Friday Service in our Sanctuary. Lincoln community believers, join us as we worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ together on this special night.

Easter Sunday, April 20  9:30 am

at Hargrove Chapel on the campus of Lincoln Christian University. Join us for a special combined worship service praising our Risen Lord! Our Worship Choir will lead us in singing songs of celebration and praise. They will also bring our special music. The sermon will be “Tree Reasons,” a look at three trees that stand at the beginning, the middle, and the end of the Bible story. As we grasp the big picture of the Bible in the story of the three trees—the tree in the garden, the tree on the hill, and the tree in the city—we will begin to see and understand God’s bigger picture. Everyone is invited to come worship with us and to bring someone with them who needs to get the bigger picture of God’s story, too.
