Lent is a season of penitence, reflection, and preparation and incorporates the six Sundays leading up to Holy Week, including Palm Sunday.
On Maundy Thursday, we worship at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. We remember Jesus’ last night as we celebrate the Lord’s Supper and the Service of Shadows. Following the service, we are invited to take turns in a continuous prayer vigil through the night.
On Good Friday, we join in a Cross Walk at 10:15, sponsored by the Pottstown Ministerium, that begins “on the green” between Zion’s UCC and Emmanuel Lutheran Churches on Hanover Street. We walk with other Christians to remember Jesus’ walk to the cross and to pray for our neighbors and the “welfare of the city.”.
