Do you sometimes have questions about faith? Immanuel is passionate about thinking critically and acting faithfully, following the compassionate peaceful path of Jesus.  We seek to support and challenge each other in being God’s loving presence in our neighborhood and world in very concrete ways.  We are people who trust God’s promises—so we can live, act and vote out of hope, rather than fear.  Immanuel is a place of welcome for all people – no exceptions!
Let’s worship together on Sundays.

Holy Week

Join us for Holy Week and Easter 2021

March 28 – Palm Sunday  10:30 am via ILC YouTube

On Palm Sunday we celebrate the arrival of Jesus to Jerusalem. While we recognize him as the Christ, we listen as the stage is set for his persecution. We leave rejoicing, yet knowing there’s more to come. This year we will also celebrate the Affirmation of Faith of one of our youth.

April 1 – HOLY THURSDAY   6:30 pm via Zoom (email office for login info)

In the evening, we gather as Jesus did on that Thursday. In this service we will have a time of ritual washing & healing prayers, gathering around the Word, and a Sacred Meal. (Instructions for what to prepare for your home altar will be available in coming weeks). Jesus gave this command as a gift, A FORETASTE OF THE FEAST TO COME. The evening ends with a liturgy of Stripping of the Altar, and we will end the Zoom call in silence. 

April 2 – GOOD FRIDAY

Plymouth UCC has gathered an eccumenical collection of seven women, including Pastor Prisiclla, to preach on the Seven Last Words of Jesus alongside the last words of Elijah McClain. This service will be shared via our congregation channel, with many thanks to Plymouth UCC and Rev. Kelle Brown. 

April 3 – EASTER VIGIL  6:30 pm via ILC YouTube

On Easter Eve we proclaim the victory of Christ even in the midst of the shadows of the night. The liturgy of Holy Chaos & Hilarity begins as we strike the first fire of Easter. We move through the shadows, led by the light of the Easter Candle. We gather around the Candle to tell the stories of salvation, to remember our Baptism, and celebrate the first Alleluia of Easter. Please — Include the children!!

April 4 – EASTER SUNDAY      10:30 am Worship via ILC YouTube

A joyful celebration! Ring a bell every time we sing or say “Alleluia”. 

11:30 am-ish – Coffee Hour via Zoom (email office for login info)

Bring your bell and your Easter Fashion for a time of rejoicing together.

A Note About Parking

However, if you must drive, please allow extra time to find parking as you navigate the daily road closures.  Click here for paid parking options near Immanuel if you cannot find on-street parking.

While we regret the inconveniences, we hope they don’t dissuade you from coming to Immanuel and participating in the services.
