A non-denominational church in Hendersonville, TN // Sundays 9AM & 10:45AM //

Holy Week

 

 

This is the most special week of the year for the Christian faith.

 

Easter is almost here!

 

This year we are adding a third Easter service to our resurrection celebration!

 

You can choose from either of these services, which will have the same worship music and preaching:

 

– Saturday, April 20 at 6pm

* Childcare through age 4 for Saturday night.

– Sunday, April 21 at 9am

– Sunday, April 21 at 10:45am

* Children services through 5th grade for Sunday morning services.

 

 

With the new Easter schedule, we are choosing to have a Maundy Thursday service at 6:30pmon April 18 instead of a Good Friday service. This Maundy Thursday service will have the same contemplative, soul-stirring reflection we are accustomed to preparing for Easter. I am very excited to experience this with you. We will have childcare through age 4.

 

 

 

 

Who are you inviting?

 

Easter weekend is one of the most significant opportunities we have to attract those not connected to a church to experience Jesus with us.   We have invitation cards available for you. Contact me, and I will get them to you. You can put these card in strategic places you work, and personally hand them to people who would enjoy attending our Easter service.

 

 

 

I have great anticipation about this week!

Maundy Thursday Service

As we move into Holy Week, those days between Palm Sunday and Resurrection Sunday, many of us read along in scripture, marking the days as events unfold and the tension rises.  We imagine Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, the encounters during the week, the questioning and teaching, the jockeying for position, the whispers as the darkness gathers.
Our Maundy Thursday service is a time of worship that marks the night Jesus gathered with his disciples one final time. We’ll enter the upper room through the words of scripture, hearing His voice as He teaches us who He is and what it means to follow Him.
To fully experience the light of the resurrection morning, we must first remember the darkness, uncertainty, and betrayal that preceded it.  Because we know the redemption that awaits, we remember and confess and surrender the old so that we may be made new.
I hope you’ll be part of this time of worship starting at 6:30pm on Thursday, April 18.  Nursery will be available through age 4.
You are loved,

Pastor Deborah Jackson

Three Easter Services this Year

Easter is just over two weeks away!
This year we are adding a third Easter service to our resurrection celebration!   Our theme is Uncontained, and you will know that the resurrection power of Jesus cannot be limited!
The last few years we have been packed in our two Easter services, and this surge occurred with the holiday falling around spring break. With Easter Sunday later this year, we anticipate even more people coming to CIL for their encounter with Jesus!
You can choose from either of these services, which will have the same worship music and preaching:
 
                        – Saturday, April 20 at 6pm
                        – Sunday, April 21 at 9am
                        – Sunday, April 21 at 10:45am

So, who should come to the Saturday night Easter service?

– For those who volunteer for the Sunday services, the Saturday night option is for you to enjoy a worship experience with your family.   On Saturday night, all the elementary students will join us in the sanctuary. The typical children’s ministry will occur for the Sunday services.
– For those of you who have Easter plans that make attending Sunday service a challenge, the Saturday night service will allow you to worship with CIL and still participate in other family traditions on Sunday.
– Some of you will choose to attend Saturday night, so an optimal seat will be available for someone in the community on Sunday.
With the new Easter schedule, we are choosing to have a Maundy Thursdayservice at 6:30pm on April 18 instead of a Good Friday service. This Maundy Thursday service will have the same contemplative, soul-stirring reflection we are accustomed to in order to prepare for Easter.
This is going to be an exciting time for our personal faith, church family, and wider community!
Grace and peace,
Aaron
