Holy Week at NAPC
Before we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday, we have special services throughout Holy Week that point us to events leading to Jesus' resurrection—Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem (marked on Palm Sunday), the Last Supper and Jesus' betrayal by his disciple Judas (Maundy Thursday), and his arrest and crucifixion (Good Friday). Holy Week gives us the opportunity to somberly reflect on the weight of God's great sacrifice of his only Son, leading to his ultimate triumph over sin and death and his gift of eternal life. We hope you'll join us at the special services during Holy Week as we orient ourselves ever closer to Jesus Christ.
