Holy Week:

SENSE-ational, Generational Easter!

Holy Week (Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter) is not just a historical seven days to be remembered from the past. Holy Week can be experienced in the present. During Holy Week 2018, all five human senses will encounter God on a human level. This experience is meant to underscore the reality of God in human flesh in Christ. This experience is aimed at making the historical event of Holy Week personal … creating generational memories and memory pieces.
