FAMILY WORSHIP SUNDAY

On the first Sundays of the month at the 10am worship service, we include our children and youth in helping to lead worship.  Children and youth offer the readings, lead the prayers, serve as ushers, participate in the music, and take the Sunday collection.  A special sermon that is geared toward the children and youth is offered as well.  This is a wonderful service to bring the whole family to, as we celebrate the gifts of all ages in our common worship together.

PALM SUNDAY

Holy Week begins on this day, Palm Sunday, as we prepare more intentionally for the coming of Easter.  At our usual Sunday worship times of 8am and 10am we celebrate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem with the distribution of palms and singing of hymns.  At the 10am service, we are joined by the Colorado Youth Pipe Band as we process around the neighborhood to the sounds of bagpipes as we wave palms in joy.

MAUNDY THURSDAY AND NIGHT WATCH

The Triduum, or Great Three Days begins with the Liturgy of Maundy Thursday, as we observe Jesus' greatest commandment, that we love one another.  The Liturgy of Maundy Thursday, with foot washing, and commemoration of the institution of the Eucharist, begins at 7pm.  Following the service, there is an all night Vigil in the Chapel of Repose in response to Jesus' question, "could you not watch with me for one hour?"  An off duty police office will stand watch over night for the security of those keeping vigil during the night hours.

GOOD FRIDAY LITURGY

Today marks the commemoration of Jesus' crucifixion and death.  The Good Friday liturgy is celebrated at Noon in the now stripped sanctuary at Church of the Ascension.  Perhaps the most somber and profound service of worship in the church year, this liturgy prepares us for the joy of Easter that is to come.  The Good Friday liturgy includes the veneration of the Cross and Communion from the reserved sacrament.
