The Lenten Prayer Vigil

Come and Pray

If you would like to deepen both your prayer life and your experience of Good Friday/Easter, be part of our annual Maundy Thursday/Good Friday Prayer Vigil. Our prayer vigil pray-ers will watch and wait with Jesus on the last night and day before he goes to the cross. The vigil will:

  • begin an hour after the Maundy Thursday service is over (9pm, March 28th)
  • end before the Good Friday service (4:30 pm Friday, March 29th).

In order to be sure the entire time is covered, you are asked to sign up for specific hour or half-hour time slot when you will come to church and pray in the sanctuary.  

You may choose to pray alone, as a couple, with friends, or with your family. The sacred space of the sanctuary will help settle your mind and heart. All that you need for a meaningful prayer time will be provided: Bibles, hymnals, candles, devotion and prayer books, suggestions for prayer and objects to help you focus. You just bring an open heart and a commitment to spend quality time in conversation with God.

You can sign up:

  • on the poster at church
  • by calling the church office (952-937-8123), or
  • Online - by following this link to see what time slots are open and to reserve your time-slot
