Good Friday & Easter Sunday

Good Friday Gathering
10am – Friday March 30th, 2018
128 Hughson St. N

Good Friday is a strange day because it doesn’t really feel that “Good.” It is really a day of Lament and reflecting on the sad journey that brought Jesus to the cross. This year, The Commons Good Friday Gathering is an interactive experience where we will be journeying through the Stations of the Cross using art installations, songs, and story telling. Everyone is welcome, even if “church” isn’t usually your thing.

FAMILIES: This is an inter-generational gathering but parents need to make their own choices about whether their kids are able to handle hearing the story of Jesus’ death. The art being used is more symbolic than literal, but their is still a weight to the images and stories.

Easter Sunrise Service
7am, Sunday April 1st, 2018
At the Fountain in Beasley Park

St. John’ Lutheran Church & The Commons invite you to start your Easter Sunday outside with a Sunrise Service around the Fountain at Beasley Park. It will be a short 30 minute Liturgy of Prayer, Songs, and Communion.

Afterwards we are all heading inside to St. John’s Building for breakfast together (104 Hughson St N. at Wilson St.).Beasley Park & St. John’s are both wheel chair accessible.
Free street parking at both locations.

Easter Sunday Potluck Supper
6pm – Sunday April 1st, 2018
128 Hughson St. N

At The Commons we like to celebrate Easter Sunday with a big Community Potluck. Easter is all about Life & Celebration, and the best way we know how to live into that is to feast together. No singing, no teaching, no tricks, just people coming together as a community to enjoy a meal together. Everyone is welcome (even if church isn’t your thing), just bring some food to share.

ACCESSIBLE:
Wheel chair ramp behind the building at 128 Hughson St. N.

PARKING:
We have on site parking and lots of street parking

INTER-GENERATIONAL:
People of all ages and walks of life are welcome

Stations of the Cross Paintings

Each week during our Stations of the Cross series Randell Neudorf has been creating two paintings based on that week’s stations. During the week news paper headlines are chosen each day that some how relate to the specific station of the cross reading being used. The clippings are then pasted onto a small wooden panel. Every Friday Randell re-reads the scripture and newspaper headlines and creates a symbol for the stations we will be reflecting on at our Sunday Worship Gathering.

Here are the stations completed so far:
