34″I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. 35By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” -John 13:34-35
34Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” –Luke 23:34
“It is finished.” –John 19:30
“Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. 6He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said.” -Matthew 28:5-6
These are just a few of the words we hear during this Holy Week. And from these words, we draw courage, hope, and faith. Because of these words, we love and we serve.
We are an international and ecumenical church, coming from many places and Christian backgrounds. Communion is served on the first and third Fridays of each month. All baptized Christians are welcome at Christ’s table.
Come, you who hunger for justice. Come feast on God’s promise to feed the hungry, lift up the lowly, and set the captive free.
Come, you who thirst for mercy. Come drink from the water of life, God’s power to pardon, strengthen, and heal.
Come, you who long for peace among nations and between peoples, peace in our homes and our hearts.
Come, all who are weary and heavy laden. Come to the river of life, lay down your burdens, and pour out your prayers before the throne of the Lamb.
