Worship Each Week & Daily Prayer
Maundy Thursday Service
Thursday, April 1, 7 pm

Maundy has more of an association with "maudlin" rather than Mandate. Gather with us on this meaningful evening as we recall Jesus' last commands, his mandate to love one another as he has loved us, and the act of service in washing his disciples' feet. While we will not have a foot washing service, we will have communion and readings of the betrayal, arrest, and trial of Jesus.
Good Friday Service
Friday, April 2, 5 pm

Our sanctuary will be transformed into a series of prayer stations with scripture reading, responsive action, and a time for reflection or prayer.
Saturday, April 3, 5 pm
Sunday, April 4,
8 am & 9:30 am
He has risen! Join us in worship as we recall and celebrate the one who conquered death and the grave.

Continental breakfast items available on Sunday morning.
We host in-person services on Saturdays at 5 pm,
and Sunday mornings at 8 am and 9:30 am.

Morning Devotion
Each day, except Sunday, Pastor Jason shares a brief 4-7 minute scripture reading, reflection, response, and prayer. During the season of Lent, Pastor Jason is sharing the gospel of Mark, which will be read through by Easter. We encourage you to read this gospel. The associated devotion is posted to Prairie Avenue's Facebook page.
You may also access it on the church website: prairieavenuechristianchurch.org/daily-devotional. It is posted around 8:20 to 8:30 each morning.
