TENEBRAE / EASTER April 21st - April 24th

Tenebrae literally means "darkness".  The service commemorates the suffering and death of Christ, progressing from light to darkness.  Ushers come forward to take their light from the Christ Candle.  Then light the candle of the worshipper nearest the center aisle.

 As the Users bring the cross past each pew during the reading of the scriptures, everyone in the pew extinguishes their candle.  Extinguishing the candles symbolizes the fading of loyalty of the disciples and friends of Jesus and also fading of the world as Christ was departing from it.  The extinguishing of the central candle signifies the death  of Jesus.  The service ends after the tolling of the bell with the sanctuary in darkness.

Presbytery Women at work - 2010

A small group of Presbytery Women get together and make dresses out of pillowcases. These pillowcases have either been donated or purchased at local thrift shops. The dresses are then shipped to Africa for girls of all ages. A group of local missionaries distributed more than 200 pillowcase dresses in Guinea Bissau in December.
