Holy Week Worship Schedule

Palm Sunday Musical, April 9, 10:30am
On Palm Sunday, April 9th, our choir and guest instrumentalists will present a cantata, “In the Final Week”.  Using Christ’s love and our response to that love as its central theme, this creative and moving cantata moves listeners through each of the five days of Holy week.

Maundy Thursday, April 13, 7:00pm
The Worship Arts Committee invites you to take part in what is known as an “Agape Meal”.  Loosely based on the Jewish Seder meal, this service will begin with a simple dinner around tables in the Gathering Space.  Towards the end of the meal, we’ll “move” into a worship service that focuses on Jesus’ final meal with the disciples and a reading of the Passion story.  Sign ups are needed so, please sign up by emailing Kendra at adminasst@faithdesperes.org or by signing up in the Gathering Space.  This event is for all ages!

Easter Morning, April 16, 10:30am
Invite your friends and families to worship with us at 10:30 Easter morning! Join us for worship to hear an inspiring message, special music by a brass quartet and beautiful flowers proclaiming Christ is risen.  He is risen indeed!  

Easter Flowers
Our Easter tradition is to decorate the Sanctuary witha variety of blooming flowers (6” pots).  Cost per plant is $10.  See the sign up sheet in the Gathering Space to place your order or email Kendra at adminasst@faithdesperes.org.   Please designate if the flowers are being given in honor of or memory of loved ones.  Make checks payable to Faith Des Peres and a note that the funds are for Easter Flowers.

One Church, One Book

“Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race”


White privilege. We’ve all heard the phrase by now, a phrase that may repel you, puzzle you, guilt you, or own you. Either way, it’s time to talk about it.


During Lent, the Faith Formation Center is hosting a conversation around white privilege – what it looks like, how to be aware of it in our own lives, and how to overcome it in the
service of mutuality and fairness.  


The discussion will be centered on the book, “Waking Up White” by Debby Irving.  
So we invite you to join the conversation. Conversations will take place after church March 12, April 2 and April 9. You can pick-up the book on Amazon or at your local library.
