Easter plans at TVC are well under way. We’ll offer three identical Good Friday services, at 6 and 7:30 pm in the Chapel at TVC Main, and at 6 pm at TVC East on April 19, with Nursery and Preschool childcare available by reservation.
As you prepare for Easter Week, mark your calendars to join us at either campus. We start with our annual Good Friday services, which are among the most moving gatherings held at TVC all year. These silent services include participatory elements (candles, nails, the cross) — all designed to walk those in attendance through the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion. If you haven’t been before, it’s a very meaningful way to commemorate Christ’s sacrifice and prepare your heart for Easter Sunday.
Good Friday is on April 19 this year, and you can choose between our usual 6 and 7:30 pm services in the Chapel at TVC Main or 6 pm service over at TVC East. Keep in mind that these silent services start right on time, so plan to arrive early to get settled in your seats. The ceremonies are mostly identical, but we will have a TVC Kids Choir presenting a special song at TVC Main. Also, for those with vision issues, it can be difficult to follow along on Good Friday since the lights in the Chapel are dimmed. To help, we’ve made the text of the entire service available for download in advance at goodfriday.thevillagechapel.com. Nursery and Preschool childcare is available for Good Friday by reservation at childcare.thevillagechapel.com.
Then return on Easter Sunday, April 21, as we celebrate at our regular morning service times at both campuses (including our new 10:15 am service at TVC East!). Our parking lots can fill up quickly on holidays, so plan to arrive early or consider using Lyft, which will offer special Easter discounts for TVCers. Look for discount codes and more details soon.
