Christ Church provides many opportunities to fully experience Holy Week. Even though Jesus' journey to the cross is a tough conversation to have with children, it is important to discuss to fully appreciate the joy of Easter. On Wednesday, April 12th, the youth will lead us in the "Holy Week Experience." In my opinion, this is appropriate for children 3rd grade and above. On Maundy Thursday, April 13th before the foot washing (perfect for all ages), we will all gather to learn about the needs of Ugandans, and cut out denim and plastic. Shoemakers in Uganda will use our cutouts to make shoes for those who suffer from parasites. This is the perfect way to live out the great commandment on such a holy night. You are invited to learn and serve, and then participate in the foot washing followed by the Eucharist . My child will be skipping sports practices this night because of the great possibilities this experience has to offer.
