Maundy Thursday – Thursday, April 6
The Maundy Thursday service will be April 6 at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary. Maundy Thursday begins the Three Days (or Triduum), remembering the new commandment that Christ gave us in word and deed as he taught us how to love one another, washing our feet as a servant. We  celebrate the Lord’s Supper, remembering the meal Christ shared with his disciples before his death. The service will also be livestreamed.

Good Friday, Friday, April 7
Good Friday Worship service will be April 7 at 7 p.m. in the chapel. Good Friday is the day we remember Jesus’ crucifixion. The Good Friday service is a penitential service, yet it is also a celebration of the good news of the cross. This service will not be livestreamed.

Easter Sunday – Sunday, April 9
Celebrate Easter on Sunday, April 9, at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Easter celebrates the presence of the crucified and risen Christ who is now among us, reconciling us as one people. The 10:30 a.m. service will also be livestreamed on our website at www.fpctopeka.org/live-worship, on our Facebook page, and on our YouTube channel. Nursery and childcare will be available for both services. All are welcome at First Presbyterian Church of Topeka!

Special Easter treat: our Faith & Flour group will bake a special batch of hot cross buns to share with those who worship in person on Easter.
