Lent Services and Events

April 5  |  Palm Sunday Service and Kids' Easter Party

Begins in the Sanctuary  at  11 AM
This special service begins with children walking through the sanctuary aisles, waving palm branches. All children are invited to participate in the Palm Parade. After the parade, children ages 3 through 3rd grade will be taken to the Easter Party in the chapel. Children in 4th grade and older may participate through volunteering to help with crafts, games, and hiding eggs for the egg hunt that will follow.
After worship, parents can pick up their children from the chapel and take them to the egg hunt, located on the playgrounds (or the gym if it rains). All eggs will only include stickers and toys, but kids will also receive a candy-filled goodie bag at the Easter Party!
Nursery care is also available for children younger than 3 years old, or children who are not yet potty-trained.

April 9  |  Maundy Thursday Service

Sanctuary  at  7 PM
Maundy Thursday occurs during Holy Week and remembers when Jesus Christ instituted the Eucharist during the Last Supper, an event that is told in the Christian bible.

April 10  |  Good Friday Service

Sanctuary  at  7 PM
Good Friday commemorates Jesus Christ's Passion, crucifixion, and death. All paraments and decorations are covered during this service.

April 12  |  Easter Sunday

Sanctuary at 8:45 am and 11:00 am   |   Family Life Center at 9:45 am
The tomb is empty! Come celebrate through worship and by bringing flowers to add to the cross that's displayed outside.

We need acolytes to serve as cross bearers, Bible bearers, and candle bearers throughout the lenten season and especially during Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. If your child or young teen would be interested in participating, please sign up at the link below.

Sign Up


We invite all adults to join one of our Sunday School classes for a special 6-7 week Lent study beginning Sunday, March 10 at 9:45 am.
Whether you are a new member, a long-time member, or a visitor, we would love for you to come up to the 2nd floor of the Education Building, grab a cup of coffee in the Holy Grounds, and participate in a time of study and fellowship. Check out these offerings and see if one interests you. You don't have to sign up; just show up.
If you have questions about either a specific Sunday School class or Lent study, please contact Pastor Lori Osborn (losborn@johnscreekumc.org).
