FCCR Holy Week Worship Opportunities

First Congregational Church of Rochester, 11 Constitution Way in Rochester, 508-763-4314, is pleased to announce its Holy Week schedule. We invite you to come and worship with us! All gatherings will be live streamed on our website, www.rochestercongregational.com, for those who feel safer worshipping from home.

            April 1 at 7:00 pm: Maundy Thursday. This service of Tenebrae (meaning “darkness” or “shadows”) has been practiced by the church since medieval times. It is a tradition used during the last days of Holy Week to impress upon the hearts of believers the awful consequences of sin and the magnitude of the Savior’s sacrifice. This somber service includes Communion, Scripture reading, and the gradual extinguishing of lights in the Sanctuary.

            April 2 at 7:00 pm: Good Friday. This Good Friday gathering will include a special message to draw our attention to Jesus’ passion on our behalf. The evening will conclude with participation in the Lord’s Supper in a unique way that you will remember for years to come.

            April 4: Resurrection Sunday. Our sunrise gathering begins at 7:00 am on the Church Green and our Easter worship gathering at 10:00 am will be held in the Sanctuary. Come and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
