Holy Week and Easter Resources
As we are gathering online this year to prepare for Easter, we have pulled a number of resources together for you and your family to utilize.
Video recordings of services are posted
on our Living Lord YouTube channel (youtube.com/channel/UCAREvdtgS7QJdSITQ4Fng0A) and on our Living Lord Facebook page (facebook.com/Living-Lord-Lutheran-Church-337157206317031/), so that you may hear God’s Word from Scripture and at the Last Supper.
Palm Sunday - April 5
As part of our online service this weekend (5:30pm Saturday) , we are going to host a 'virtual palm waving' and would love for you to be a part of this! Send us a picture of you and your family waving palms! Below is a link to a printable palm you can color OR you can just send us a picture of you waving your hands!
Maundy Thursday- April 9
We will be having our Maundy Thursday service online at 7pm also and as part of that we will have an opportunity to experience a digital Passover Seder meal. Here is a list of the menu items should you wish to join alongside.
A Roasted Shank bone or Chicken Bone
A Hard Boiled Egg
Marror: Bitter herbs, usually horseradish
Haroset: a mixture of sweet fruits and nuts
Karpas: Parsley of other greens
Also on table
Matzah: unlevened bread
Afikoman: the Middle Matzah – distinguished from the other matzah
Wine: 4 challaces to show the wine
Tall single goblet: to remind us of Elijah.
Even if you do not prepare these items, please join us at 7pm on Facebook or Youtube to celebrate alongside us.
ALSO! Many have asked about the communion bread recipe many use in preparing communion bread for worship. Below is a link to the recipe!
Good Friday - April 10
Good Friday service will be available at noon on Friday and can be viewed anytime after that by your family. We would encourage you to join us in the worship by setting up seven candles and following along as they are extinguished.
In the past, we have had Easter Story Tomb Cookies for children on Easter and we thought these may be a fun activity for families to make in preparation for Easter. The button below has the recipe to make these Easter goodies!
Easter Sunday - April 12
Easter Sunday worship will be available anytime after 5:30pm on Saturday April 11. As part of that worship, we would like to host a virtual Alleluia just like the palm waving. We encourage you to take a selfie/photo of your family with an Alleluia sign and send it to us either on the Facebook Connections page or to Chad at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below you can find a printable Alleluia print or they can also be picked up from the church office by the back door!
