Experience Holy Week with Herndon UMC
What if Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection were less about atonement of sin and more about freedom to live? This Lenten season, we have been looking at the story of Exodus, the first great story of freedom, so that we might better understand the freedom God gives all through Jesus. As we go on this journey, we will have a better understanding of the suffering of God, God’s people, and the triumph of freedom God has given to God’s people.
God’s love is for everyone, and we hope you will come experience Holy Week with us.
Opportunities to Experience Holy Week with Herndon UMC:
Bring a chair and sit around the fire (outside, weather permitting) for this storytelling worship experience as we keep watch for Easter. A casual, invitational, worship experience that is appropriate for all ages.
If you are coming for the KIDS Egg Hunt, for the Easter Vigil service, or just in the neighborhood. Come, get some dinner from the District Flames food truck, and hang around for some fellowship.
Come enjoy some Easter fun, rain or shine! Kids up to 6th grade are invited to make sprint-themed crafts, play games, and work together in teams to win the Easter Egg Hunt. Reserve your child’s spot in the Hunt today!
There will be a “Service of Nails” for Good Friday worship. This is a powerful and intense worship experience, with intentional silence. Childcare options will be available for newborns to grade 6. Livestream will be available.
Explore Jesus’ path to the cross with all of your senses. All are welcome for this self-paced, devotional experience.
Young adults and young professionals gather together for an epic egg hunt where we compete for ridiculous prizes. Please note, this event is NOT intended for children and youth younger than 18.
