Holy Week at Home
Updated: Apr 8, 2020
Hey Common Table friends and family,
We know this Holy Week will be different but what we focus on has a profound impact on our perspectives…so we want to help you focus on making some meaningful memories in the midst of the different season we find ourselves in.
Below are some ideas for creating a meaningful Holy Week experience for yourself and your household.
Remember to join us (virtually!) for Good Friday worship at 7pm on April 10 and for Easter Sunday worship at 10am on April 12.
Invite your friends, share the events on Facebook, forward this email, give someone a call. We will gather on Zoom and (hopefully) stream to Facebook Live!
Creating a Sacred Space
Our friends over at Sanctified Art had some awesome ideas for creating a meaningful at-home Holy Week experience, including creating a sacred space.
Items to bring to worship
For both Good Friday and Easter Sunday, you are invited to bring bread and wine or grape juice for Holy Communion and a candle to light during worship.
While we won’t gather until Good Friday to remember both the Last Supper and Crucifixion, we want you to have some resources to engage your household on Maundy Thursday. This is the day we remember Jesus’ celebration of the Passover meal with his disciples when he reminded them of their call to be servants who love and when he first shared the meal of Holy Communion with his closest friends, in an upper room. There was no ordained pastor, no altar, no ornate building…just people, around a table. God comes to us in all kinds of ways and in all kinds of places!
Activities for Kids
Some of these are Holy Week specific, some of them are just awesome activities that your kids or grandkids may enjoy.
To offer some time and space for spiritual reflection and centering in this week.
