Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter. The liturgy reenacts Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem with a procession and palm branches.

The Gospels describe Jesus entering Jerusalem before his crucifixion, riding on a colt or a donkey. A crowd of people greeted him with cries of Hosanna, which is an expression of prayer or joy, and threw coats and branches at his feet to honor him. The Gospel According to John specifically mentions palm branches, which were a sign of victory in pre-Christian times.

 

The observance of Palm Sunday dates back to at least the fourth century, recorded first by Egeria in her account of her pilgrimage to the Holy Land in the early 380s.

Maundy Thursday

April 18 at 7pm

Come pray with us, with candles in the night, ancient holy Scripture readings, soulful music, the breaking of bread and sharing of the cup of the new covenant, shed for us by Jesus for the forgiveness of sins and promise of new life in Christ.

Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. The English word "Maundy" comes from the Latin mandatum, which means "commandment."

Friday, April 19 at 1 PM – 3 PM

Good Friday is the holiest of holy days. We, at East Weymouth Congregational Church recognize that one should have a place to be alone with their thoughts and prayers. As in past years we will once again open our doors to provide an opportunity for everyone who desires some quiet time with their thoughts, and with God, to enter for as long as you wish. Traditionally the sanctuary is open between 12 Noon and 3:00 P.M. Come, for a few minutes or for the entire time. There is sacred music and candles so you can light a candle with your prayer.

Easter Sunrise Service

 

Join us on Great Hill at 6:30am as we celebrate the Risen Christ! This is a community-wide event sponsored by the United Church of Christ congregations in Weymouth. ALL ARE WELCOME! Come in comfy clothes (even pajamas), bring Your coffee (or tea or hot chocolate) and celebrate with your family, friends and neighbors. We share the sunrise service with Old South Union Church, UCC; Pilgrim Congregational Church, UCC; The First Church in Weymouth.
