Celebrate the Season with Brookside
Holy Week at Brookside Church
Everyone is invited and welcome to celebrate Easter with Brookside Church. Join our in-person or virtual services to help us reflect and focus on Jesus before celebrating His resurrection on Easter Sunday!
April 2: Palm Sunday
10 a.m. Palm Sunday begins with joy, laughter, a little chaos, and palms that will be scattered around the sanctuary. We will be re-enacting the entrance into Jerusalem around Jesus who rides into the city on a donkey. Children will join us at 10:00 a.m. in the Narthex to receive palms and musical instruments. As we boldly sing Hosannahs and parade around the church, we’ll follow Jesus into Jerusalem.
April 6: Maundy Thursday
7:00 p.m. The Tenebrae service will begin at 7:00 p.m. with Holy Communion and an original play written by Rev. Laura titled “Following Jesus in the Shadows.” The evening will end in silence.
April 9: Easter Sunday
The service will take place inside the church sanctuary. The Nottingham Brass will join our Chancel Choir to lead Easter music and hymns. Children are invited to join us in worship or join the Spiritual Art Class in. All children will join us for the ritual of decorating the empty cross with colorful flowers. An Easter Egg Hunt will follow for children third grade and under.
All services will be live streaming on the church Facebook page and also accessible on the church website: https://www.brooksidecc.org/worship
Easter Egg Hunt
Following the service, an Easter Egg Hunt for children will be held in the churchyard for children 3rd grade and under. Please bring your own basket.
