Holy Week Services and Activities
April 14 to 21, 2019
Holy Week is the week leading up to Easter Sunday, which includes Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Holy Week is also known as The Great Week and Passion Week. During this time, Christians remember Jesus’ journey to the cross as He triumphantly entered Jerusalem, washed His disciples’ feet and instituted the Lord’s Supper, was betrayed, wrongfully accused, beaten, scorned, crucified and killed for the sins of mankind. After three days in the grave, we remember Jesus’ resurrection—rising from the dead—on the first Easter morning.
Immanuel Lutheran Church in Joplin, Missouri spends much time in worship, prayer, and service during Holy Week. We hope you will join us and learn of Jesus’ great love for you. You are welcome to participate throughout Holy Week and on Easter Sunday too!
