Holy Week

Dear Willow Friends,

We are in the middle of Holy Week, one of the most significant weeks in the church calendar. It’s a time to pause and reflect on Jesus, focusing on His life, death, and resurrection. I’ve found myself with a deeper desire to be still this week, simply sitting in the reality of what Jesus has done on my behalf. These moments of silence have drawn me closer to the heart of God; it’s been humbling, and I am deeply grateful.

We have a number of ways you can participate in the rhythms of Holy Week, and I pray God meets you in a unique way as you do so.

Tonight at 7 p.m. in the Garage, the Practice is hosting a Tenebrae service that follows the journey of Jesus from the Last Supper to His sentencing. All are welcome and childcare is available.

Our Good Friday services are tomorrow at 5 and 7:30 p.m. in the Main Auditorium. Ashlee Eiland and Gary Burge will lead an interactive and responsive liturgy to reflect on Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. We will worship together and receive Communion as an act of remembrance. Promiseland is available at the 5 p.m. service.

Then on Saturday and Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at our Easter services. He conquered death so that we can live, and He went to great lengths to bring us into His love. The Easter message will unpack two parables that paint a beautiful picture of God’s relentless pursuit of us: the parable of the prodigal son and the parable of the lost sheep. Please be praying for our team as we prepare—and pray for those who will hear the gospel for the first time. May God do miracles in our midst this Easter.

With gratitude,

Steve Gillen
