The Holiest Week Is Near
Please make plans to join us at the Clock Church and Old Dutch Church on this, the holiest week on the Christian calendar.
March 29 Festival of the Palms, 10:30 a.m., Clock Church. Commemorates Jesus's triumphant arrival in Jerusalem, where He is celebrated by crowds that will turn against Him as the week unfolds.
April 2 Seder, 7:00 p.m., Ammerman Hall, Clock Church. We gather on Maundy Thursday, the name given to the day Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples, known as the Last Supper. We use traditional elements of the Jewish Seder and incorporate the Christian Sacrament of the Eucharist.
April 3 Good Friday Tenebrae Service, 7:00 p.m., Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow. Also known as the Service of Shadows, this deeply moving program commemorates the day Jesus was crucified. The service ends in darkness, as the congregation files out in silence.
April 5 Sunrise Service, 6:34 a.m., Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow. We begin our celebration of the Resurrection at first light, in the stillness and early morning mist of the Old Dutch Burying Ground. Then, at 10:30 a.m., we gather at the Clock Church for the Easter Festival of the Resurrection. A special worship program includes adult and bell choirs and musicians. There will be two Easter Egg Hunts during Sunday School, for younger and older children.
