Baptism is a powerful moment in someone’s journey with Jesus. It’s an outward sign of an inner reality … a way of declaring to God, our community and ourselves – I was once dead in sin, but now I’m alive through Christ – a new creation!

If you’re ready to own your faith in Jesus, or have recently come to believe but have never been baptized, this might be your next step – and we would love to celebrate it with you! On Easter Sunday (4/9), we’ll have an opportunity for full immersion baptisms. If you’re interested, or interested in figuring out if this is the right next step for you, contact pastor Taylor at Those who were baptized as an infant / child but would like to remember their baptism will be more than welcome, as well.

Kids (through fifth grade) interested in taking this step are invited to attend one of two 30-minute interest meetings alongside their parent(s) in the Loft: Sunday, April 2nd after Vessel (approx. 12:45 PM) or Wednesday, April 5thbefore Wednesday night programming, beginning at 5:15 PM.

For those who have never been baptized, we’ll have a mandatory two week class 3/26 and 4/2 after Vessel (lunch provided). Email Taylor or Craig ( to RSVP.  

After the 10 AM worship gathering (or before the 11:30 AM!), join us on the soccer field for a fun Easter Egg Hunt! Our Kids Ministry staff will be there, but parent supervision is required.

We’ll start promptly after service. See you out there!

Near the end of his Journey to Jerusalem, the triumphal entry of Jesus into this city is met with joyful praise to God for all the miracles the disciples and crowds have witnessed.

Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week—a time in which the church points to, and remembers, the events leading to cross but ending in resurrection.

Reflect on what we know as the “last seven words of Christ” as we try to understand what Jesus went through on our behalf that Good Friday.

  • “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 NLT)
  • “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43 NIV)
  • “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” (John 19:26-27 NIV)
  • “My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:34 NIV)
  • “I thirst.” (John 19:28-29 ESV)
  • “It is finished.” (John 19:30 NIV)
  • “Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” (Luke 23:46 NLT)


These last words of Jesus will be shared by a variety of generations. Hear these words—which are still very much alive and well—spoken and reflected through some of the family that calls UC home.

Then on the third … early in the morning, thunderous power, love and beauty broke the silence. What everyone thought was the end, became the beginning.

The man people thought was wrapped in grave clothes, was walking through town, breathing and talking and…very much alive!

Most could hardly believe their eyes. Mary thought Jesus was a gardener; two of his disciples mistook him for a stranger; and his friend Thomas refused to believe without touching for himself Jesus’ pierced hands and side.

And no wonder! They thought that evil had claimed the final word.

On Friday, Jesus said “It was finished.”

But then, on the third day, he came back to life and declared that the victory coursing through his veins, the new home he was building, the massive love that held him on the cross – we were invited into it, too.

What is Good Friday?
Ever since Jesus died and was raised again, Christians have proclaimed the cross and resurrection of Jesus to be the decisive turning point for all creation. Good Friday is the term we use to designate the day on which Jesus willingly went to the cross. On that day, we reflect upon the reality that Jesus suffered and died for the sake of the whole world. While it seems strange to call it “good,” we refer to it in this way not because of what happened, but because of where it leads.

What the world meant for evil, God redeemed in Christ for the good of every person. The horrible events of that Friday would eventually give way to the beautiful victory of Easter Sunday, where we discover that, through Christ, we are not only set free from the penalty of sin, but we are set free to live joyfully and to join God in God’s mission of love for the sake of the world.­

This night, we remember what happened the night before Jesus’ death, when He was around the table with His disciples sharing the Last Supper.

We’ll do so through a nontraditional style service, filled with creative ways to step into the most profound meal in all human history—Communion—and the humbling example of Jesus washing His disciples’ feet.
