Welcome to the United Church of Christ Vermillion

We come from diverse backgrounds forming an active church family in the Vermillion community, engaged in our own personal ministries, striving to be welcoming, embracing the promise "No Longer Strangers."

HOLY WEEK SCHEDULE

Palm/Passion Sunday – April 14        

Morning Worship                                                              10:30 am – sanctuary

Come join us as our children lead us in “sweet hosannas” and our Adult Choir will share “The Holy City” as our featured anthem.  This amazing music will draw us into the beauty of our Holy Week reflection.

  Dances of Universal Peace                                                            2:00 pm – VPL

Join us for a special Holy Week Dances of Universal Peace at the Vermillion Library Common Room.  The Dances of Universal Peace are spiritual practice in motion; a blend of chant, music, and movement into a living experience of unity, peace, integration and healing. Steve Miller will lead.

Taizé Evening Prayer                                                          6:30 pm – sanctuary

Maundy Thursday – April 18

  Tenebrae and Communion                                              8:00 pm – sanctuary

The word ‘tenebrae’ is Latin for shadows.  The center of this distinctive ceremony is the gradual extinguishing of candles while a series of the gospel stories are shared. This year the service will be infused with some of the season’s most beautiful music and a communion memorial of Jesus’ last supper.

  Prayer Vigil                                                  beginning at 9:00 pm – sanctuary

This unique prayer service takes place between Maundy Thursday evening and Easter morning sunrise, April 18-21.  This traditional vigil offers individuals and small groups the chance to gather prayerfully in our sanctuary at various times throughout the Easter weekend.  A burning candle is kept lit throughout this time as a sign of our faithfulness as we wait for the hope of resurrection.  Our sign-up sheet will be in the sanctuary.

Good Friday – April 19

Like the early disciples, come break bread together with other followers around the fire!

With bold voices, bells, brass and pipes, we will announce our Easter proclamation, concluding our Holy Week journey.
