Week of Prayer, Meditation and Feasting
Dear Redeemer Spiritual Family,It has become part of our life and rhythm as a spiritual family to set aside the week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday for intentional and rigorous prayer and meditation on the Person and Work of Jesus Christ.
Let me invite you to participate with us this week and let the great work of Redemption accomplished by Christ be remembered and lingered in.
Morning and Evening Prayers
Each morning (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday), at 7:00am, we will join together in the Sanctuary for a time of prayer. This service of prayer lasts about 30-40 minutes and is a perfect way to start off your day – with Christ and his community!
Each Evening (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday), at 6:30pm, we will join together in the Sanctuary for a brief exhortation from the Gospels and for a time of prayer. This service of prayer lasts about 40 minutes to one hour.
For both morning and evening prayers please enter through the sanctuary doors on Delaware Street; no childcare is provided at morning and evening prayers.
Good Friday Service
On Friday, April 6th, we will have our Good Friday service at 7:00pm. This service is one of the high points of our year as Scripture Readings and Songs and Sermon lead us through a profound contemplation of the Cross of our Savior and His Victory on our behalf. According to our Tradition, this service ends in silence as we remember the death of our Savior and, together, wait in anticipation for the joy of the message of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Childcare will be provided at this service.
Easter Worship and Feasting
Along with Good Friday, Easter Sunday is one of the great days of celebration and worship for our Spiritual Family. We expect both services to be full of worshippers of our Risen Christ as well as seekers who are investigating the Christian faith. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to be powerfully present as we worship our Risen Lord.
In between our two worship services, we will feast together as a community in the Underground with the special treat of Long’s Donuts. And, after the services, Redeemerites will be gathering together in homes and apartments throughout Indy for Easter brunches to continue to celebrate the Risen Christ and His community.
As your pastor and as your brother in Christ, I greatly look forward to this week of prayer, remembrance, and celebration.
Grace, Jason Dorsey
