We have made the decision to put the needs of the larger community first in helping slow the spread of the novel corona virus by ceasing all Grace Boulder building usage. This includes worship services, social gatherings, rehearsals, recitals, and all other building usage until further notice.

 

We do have audio recordings of sermons and .pdf version of our bulletins, both past and present, available. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Holy Week at Grace

Sunday of the Passion/Palm Sunday via Zoom

Sunday, April 5, 2020

Worship Service at 10:00 am

Today, we encounter the paradox that defines our faith: Jesus Christ is glorified king and humiliated servant. We too are full of paradox: like Peter, we fervently desire to follow Christ, but find ourselves afraid, denying God. We wave palms in celebration today as Christ comes into our midst, and we follow with trepidation as his path leads to death on the cross. Amid it all we are invited into this paradoxical promise of life through Christ’s broken body and outpoured love in a meal of bread and wine. We begin this week that stands at the center of the church year, anticipating the completion of God’s astounding work.

Worship 'around the Table' at 7:00 pm: Individual Absolution and Stripping of the Altar

This evening our Lenten observance comes to an end, and we gather with Christians around the world to celebrate the Three Days of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Tonight we remember Christ’s last meal with his disciples, but the central focus is his commandment that we live out the promise embodied in this meal. As Jesus washed his disciples’ feet, so we are called to give and receive love in humble service to one another. Formed into a new body in Christ through this holy meal, we are transformed by the mercy we have received and carry it into the world. Departing worship in solemn silence, we anticipate the coming days.

Worship Service 'around the Cross' at 7:00 pm: Jesus' Last Words

Life and death stand side by side as we enter into Good Friday. In Jesus’ last words, he reveals the power and glory of God as he hangs on the cross. Standing with the disciples at the foot of the cross, we pray for the whole world in the ancient bidding prayer, as Christ’s death offers life to all. We gather in solemn devotion, but always with the promise that the tree around which we assemble is indeed a tree of life. We depart silently, and we anticipate the culmination of the Three Days on Easter Sunday.

 

Easter Sunday via Zoom

Sunday, April 12, 2020

Worship Service at 10:00 am

This is the day the Lord has made! Christ is risen, and through him all creation is made new! Indeed, “God shows no partiality” (Acts 10:34): Christ’s resurrection truly brings life to everyone. We sing hymns of praise, gather around sacred words, and proclaim God’s faithfulness, power, and love in the feast of holy communion. With the women at the tomb, we are astonished, elated, and grateful. We depart with joy to proclaim the good news of God’s endless love.
