“To honor those who found courage to stand against evil, often at the cost of their own lives, let us vow to carry on their Struggle. We must teach ourselves and we must teach our children to learn from hate that we must love and to learn from evil that we must live our lives for good.”

The Holocaust Remembrance Day Memorial Service will be held at National Avenue Christian Church with area faith leaders/clergy readers: The Rabbi Barbara Block-Temple Israel, The Rev. Howard Cavner-Campus Minister and advocate for Students, Ekklesia at MSU, The Rev. Kevin Cravens-koch, The Rev. Jenn Simmons, and The Rev. Mark Struckhoff-Council of Churches of the Ozarks.

Holy Week

There are four opportunities for us to gather for worship, reflection, stories and music as we head into Holy Week.

Palm Sunday will be March 25th at 10am.  We will wave palms, hear the beautiful music of the bell choir, and then enjoy brunch and an Easter egg hunt together.

Maundy Thursday is Thursday, March 29th from 10am-8pm. The gallery will have stations of the cross (created by our kiddos!) and a labyrinth.  You are welcome to come by any time and to enjoy some silence, peace and meditation.

Good Friday is March 30th at 7pm.  We will join with other Disciples congregations for a time of meditation, beautiful music, and worship.

Finally, on April 1st at 6:45am, we will have our Easter Sunrise Reflection in the Water Wise Garden (just to the North of the Church on National), where will share Easter Morning stories, sing songs, and enjoy the sunrise and silence as we greet Easter Morning.
