Welcome to St. Aidan's!

 

LENT AT ST. AIDAN'S

All are welcome as we prepare ourselves to enter

the mystery of Easter.

Wednesday Evening Lenten Series - Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. - All are welcome for a simple supper and program.  We are delving into the Psalms, and particularly in the context of blues music.

Pre-Holy Week Service for Kids - Thursday, March 26 at 5:30 p.m. - We'll take an experiential walk through Holy Week through stories, songs and movement.  We'll begin by entering Jerusalem with Jesus waving palms, go to the upper room with the disciples for a Last Supper, footwashing, and communion.  We'll spend a little time with the cross before entering Easter.

Palm Sunday - Sunday, March 29, 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. - Wave palms and shout Hosanna to welcome Jesus into Jerusalem.

Maundy Thursday, April 2, 6 p.m. - We'll share an middle eastern agape meal in the Church together as Jesus and his disciples did on their last evening together.  During the meal, we'll hear and take part in the stories about foot washing and the first Eucharist.

Good Friday, April 3, 7:30 p.m. - A solemn Good Friday service, including a reading of the Passion.

Easter Vigil, April 4, 8 p.m. - The first festal Easter celebration!  We'll begin by welcoming the new paschal light, hear the dramatic stories of salvation, and shout the first Halleluias of Easter.

Easter Sunday Celebrations and Egg Hunts, April 5, 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 5:30 p.m. - The joyous celebration of Easter!  An egg hunt (with opportunities to add "St. Aidan's bucks" to your choice of charities) will happen after each morning service.

 

St. Aidan's is a worshipping community, welcoming people wherever they are on their faith journey. Our purpose is to nurture and develop faith in God and equip individuals for ministry in all aspects of their lives.  We invite others to join us as we strive to grow in love of God and neighbor.  This is the work to which Christ calls us.   All are welcome at St. Aidan's!

Several services on Sundays offer different worship experiences, and all are welcome to try any of them:

8:30 a.m.

A very kid-friendly shorter service with Eucharist, guitar music, and rhythm instruments for children of all ages.

10:30 a.m.

Our more traditional Eucharist, with organ and choir.  

5:30 p.m.

Our Celtic service, with lots of candlelight, beautiful meditative music, and room for quiet.  

 

During the school year, we offer educational programs for kids and adults between the two morning services.
