This Holy Week, come join our Worship Choir as they present Mary McDonald’s powerful work, “It Is Finished,” in collaboration with the Joy Paige Dance Company of Cary. This beautiful musical work will be choreographed by Sarah Otto from the Graceful Expressions Dance Company in Cary.
This worship experience will be on Thursday, April 18, at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary at Woodhaven, 4000 Kildaire Farm Road in Apex. Community members, guests and friends are welcomed.
Tenebrae is a special service for Holy Week that is held on any of the three days prior to Easter: Wednesday, Maundy Thursday or Good Friday. Tenebrae comes from Latin meaning “shadows” or “darkness.” The service makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through his burial.
This increasing darkness foreshadows Jesus’ approaching death and of the hopelessness that will be in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness with worshipers leaving in silence to ponder the impact of Christ’s death and to await the coming Resurrection. Come, worship with us as we experience Christ’s journey to the cross through music and interpretive dance!
