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.

April 10 – Palm Sunday 

10:30 am In-Person and via ILC YouTube

On Palm Sunday we celebrate the arrival of Jesus to Jerusalem. Rejoicing, we recognize Jesus as the Christ. Then we will interactively tell the beginning of the Passion story according to Mark and celebrate communion knowing there is more to come.

April 14 – MAUNDY THURSDAY  

6:30 pm In-Person with livestream starting at 6:55 pm via ILC YouTube

In the evening, we gather as Jesus did on that Thursday. We will have a time of ritual washing & gathering around the Word in the Passion story according to Matthew, a Sacred Meal & for those gathered in person, a time of recognizing, naming aloud, & holding our collective doubts together. Jesus gave this command as a gift, that we love one another & share in the meal to remember him as A FORETASTE OF THE FEAST TO COME. This will be followed by Stripping of the Altar, as Christ was stripped & a time of silence in the bare sanctuary. We depart in silence & continue the service on Friday.

April 15 – GOOD FRIDAY   

In your own time – MidDay Meditation – Spotify Playlist

A 2.5-hour, eclectic collection of music for this day, curated for ILC by Pastor Priscilla

Tenebrae Service – 6:30 pm In Person and via ILC YouTube

A solemn Liturgy of Word, prayer and song that recounts the Passion story according to Luke. The lights will dim as we move with Jesus from the garden, to the cross, & to the tomb. Once again we depart in silence & continue the service on Saturday.

April 16 – EASTER VIGIL 

6:30 pm In Person and 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 from the firepit in the world (at Lunchbox Lab), led by the light of the Easter Candle into the sanctuary. There we gather around the Candle to tell the stories of God’s spacious saving love, to remember our Baptism, & to celebrate the first Alleluia of Easter. Please — Include the children in this interactive service.

April 17 – EASTER SUNDAY

Easter Worship 10:30 am In person and via ILC YouTube

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

Easter Coffee Hour   After Worship  in Sanctuary (In person only)
