We would love for you to join us this Easter season, as we celebrate Jesus’ life and resurrection. With several service times and locations, there is something for everyone. We look forward to seeing you!

Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and continues until the Easter feast. Throughout the events of the Holy Week, we see the stage set for the events to come. The first reminds us of what seems to be the height of Jesus’ public acceptance in Palm Sunday, then transfers into the events of His public betrayal, arrest, death and ultimate resurrection.

A Walk Through Holy Week

Join us for this self-guided Holy Week activity that’s perfect to do all by yourself or with your family as you experience the stations of the cross in a whole new way. The walk begins at the tree-lined drive on the Main Campus of Franklin First UMC. Go to the sign holder and scan the QR code on the Introduction sheet to begin your journey. Then follow the paths as you immerse yourself in the events of holy week through the eyes of our Savior and then in moments that make it personal for your life today.

A Walk Through Holy Week will be available for you any time of the day beginning Palm Sunday, April 2, and continuing through Easter Sunday, April 9. This walk is best experienced during the daylight hours.

Maundy Thursday

Thursday of Holy Week is remembered as the time Jesus shared a final meal with the men who had followed Him for so long. The Eucharist, or Holy Communion, of Maundy Thursday, is tied to the theme of remembering. As Jesus and His disciples followed the instructions in the Torah to remember God’s acts of deliverance in their history as they shared the Passover meal together, so Jesus calls us to remember the new act of deliverance in our history that unfolds on these last days of
the Holy Week.

Please join us for a special Maundy Thursday on April 6 at 6:30 p.m.

Good Friday

Friday of Holy Week has been traditionally called Good Friday or Holy Friday. On this day, the church commemorates Jesus’ arrest, His trial, crucifixion, suffering, death, and burial.

Please join us for a powerful Good Friday service on April 7 at 6:30 p.m.

  • In-person at our Historic Sanctuary at 5th Avenue.
