Walking with Jesus: Holy Week

Holy Week is the heart of the church’s ritual, theological, and missional life.

The life and mission of Jesus meet their fullest test. Jesus stares directly into the face of the structures of sin and the powers of death and remains true to his calling and the work of God’s kingdom.

Easter is more than just a day. It is a 50-day season that marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the ways we live into that reality, just as his disciples did.

The season of Easter has long been a time when newcomers to Christianity and those already on the Christian journey revisit the foundations of the faith.
