Orange Congregational Church invites you to observe Holy Week and celebrate Easter with us. We are an Open & Affirming Congregation located at 205 Meeting House Lane at the corner of Orange Center Road in Orange.
There will be one worship service on Palm Sunday, April 14, which will begin with a 9:45 a.m. palm processional. Please meet us in the back-parking lot to receive your palm and to process with the bagpiper into the sanctuary. If you wish not to process, please go directly into the sanctuary. Worship will begin at 10:00 a.m. in sanctuary and will be followed by a youth-led Hosanna Luncheon at 11:30 a.m.
For Maundy Thursday on April 18, there will be a 7:00 p.m. Service of Tenebrae in our sanctuary. Lights will be extinguished as we hear the passion of Christ in his final hours. Communion by intinction will be offered.
On Good Friday, April 19, the Chapel will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Drop in for prayer and meditation with Rev. Jim.
Easter Sunday services on the morning of April 21 include a 6:00 a.m. Sunrise Service at Hannah’s Hill; you can park at the church and walk over to the hill. This is a worship service offered by our youth, to celebrate the risen Christ. Traditional Easter worship will be at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. in our sanctuary with music from the church choirs.
