Holy Week

Fairhaven UMC will host Maundy Thursday service at 7pm on Thursday, 4/14. This will be a jazz service, a new thing for us that is going to be a beautiful experience as we recall Christ’s last supper with his disciples and share in Communion.

There will be a cross procession beginning at Hill Top on Good Friday, 4/15, at 2pm. Together with Abiding Missions, we’ll carry a cross up Beltzhoover Avenue toward Grandview, stopping along the way to read Scripture that tells us of Jesus’ passion. It will end at Abiding Missions on Excelsior Street with the stripping of the altar.

Good Friday service will be held at Spencer at 7:30pm. As is our tradition in the Partnership, this will be a Tenebrae service (a service of darkness) that walks through Jesus’ betrayal, journey to the cross, and finally his death. If you’ve never attended before, Tenebrae is an extremely powerful service.

Worship will be preceded by a fish dinner. If you plan to eat, please RSVP to the office at (412) 881-4000 by Wednesday, 4/13.

If you’re at all able, I strongly encourage you to make time for Maundy Thursday and/or Good Friday worship. Easter Sunday has a far deeper feeling of meaning and grace when we have walked with the Lord to the cross first, rather than just coming from the celebration of Palm Sunday the week before. The silence of Good Friday makes Easter’s “he is risen!” all the greater.

Please bring non-perishable items for the pantry that represent all the colors of the rainbow. EX: Beets, corn, mandarin oranges, green beans, blueberry muffins, grape jelly.

Of course, you can also bring other colors as well- like white or brown pasta or peanut butter. Place items in the red bin at the bottom of the steps. 

Blessing Bags- We are in need of all items for the blessing bags. We would like to make at least 2 dozen bags each month. That means we need at least 24 of each item. Place items in the clear box labeled for the Blessing Bags at the bottom of the steps. 

Thank you for your support of these on-going and vital outreach programs for the Overbrook/ Carrick community.
