Easter Sunday Services March 31, 2024

Christ the King Church is pleased to offer two Easter Sunday Services on Sunday, March 31, 2024 at 9AM (Traditional) and 10:45AM (Contemporary).

Easter marks the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, three days after his crucifixion. The resurrection is considered to be the ultimate proof of Jesus’ divinity and the cornerstone of the Christian faith. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus conquered sin and death, and provided a path for believers to have eternal life. The celebration of Easter is therefore a time of great joy, hope and renewal.

The season of Eastertide lasts 50 days until the Day of Pentecost on May 19, 2024.

Good Friday Service March 29, 2024

Christ the King Church is pleased to offer a Good Friday Communion Service on Friday, March 29, 2024 at Noon, the time Jesus was thought to be crucified.

Communion will be served from the Reserved Sacrament from the Maundy Thursday Service. There will be no music. The service is expected to last about an hour.

Maundy Thursday Service March 28, 2024

Christ the King Church is pleased to offer a Maundy Thursday Communion Service on Thursday, March 28, 2024 at 6:30PM.

Communion will be served. There will be no music. The service is expected to last about an hour.

The service will include foot-washing, which is of course, optional. The service concludes with the stripping of the Table. This practice involves the removal of all adornments and decorations from the Table, leaving it bare and stark. This is meant to symbolize the abandonment and desertion of Jesus by his disciples after the Last Supper, and it serves as a reminder to Christians of the need for humility and repentance. At the end of the service, the people depart in silence.

Prayer Vigil Thursday, March 28, 2024-Friday, March 29, 2024

Christ the King Church is pleased to offer a Prayer Vigil Thursday, March 28, 2024 from 8PM (starting after the Maundy Thursday Service) until Friday, March 29, 2024 at Noon, the time Jesus was thought to be crucified. The Vigil will conclude with the Good Friday Service at 12PM.

This is a time to pray and be with Jesus as he struggled and sweat blood in the Garden of Gethsemane while his disciples slept, was arrested, stood trial before the Roman authorities, was mocked by the crowd, abandoned by most of his followers, and was crucified. (Matthew 26:36-27:50)

Signups for prayer shifts will be available in the narthex of the church on Palm Sunday.

Holy Week Schedule 2024

Holy Week is a sacred time in the Christian calendar that leads up to Easter Sunday, the day on which we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the Anglican tradition, Holy Week is a time of reflection, penitence, and spiritual renewal. Below is a list of services and activities we have over Holy Week, along with a brief description of each.

Palm Sunday is March 23, 2024

There will be two services at 9AM (Traditional) and 10:30AM (Contemporary).

Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, which commemorates Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. On this day, the Anglican Church celebrates with a procession of palms, a reminder of the palm branches that were laid before Jesus as he rode into the city. The service also includes a reading of the Passion narrative, which recounts the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion. The service will start in the parking lot as we will process into the sanctuary with palms. Communion will be served. Read More

Reconciliation of a Penitent (aka Aural Confession) Monday, March 25-Wednesday, March 27, 2024

Reconciliation of a Penitent is a rite in the Book of Common Prayer by which a minister of the church pronounces forgiveness of sin to a penitent in the name of Christ and the Church. It is particularly apt during the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent.

Charlie+ will be providing opportunities to hear confession Monday through Wednesday during Holy Week. Time can be scheduled by emailing Charlie+.

The secrecy of a confession is morally binding upon the clergy and will not to be broken. The content of the confession is not normally a matter of subsequent discussion. It is the Anglican belief in aural (heard) confession that, “all may, some should, and none must.” It can be a powerful and life-changing experience, especially for those who struggle to feel forgiven.

Charlie+ will be using the Rite of Reconciliation of Penitents from pages 223-224 of the ACNA Book of Common Prayer (2019). The rite appears below: Read More
