Shuttles will run from the Texan Eye to Covenant from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Easter.
On April 18, from 6 to 8 p.m., Covenant members and friends will meet in homes throughout Austin for an evening of fellowship, a potluck meal and communion as we remember Jesus’ last evening with His disciples. Families are encouraged to attend this special evening together, and all homes will be intergenerational unless otherwise noted. Sign up here. For more information, contact Kathryn Sedberry.
Good Friday marks the death of Jesus Christ. It is called “good” because of what Jesus’ death means for the redemption of the world. Covenant marks this day with a “Tenebrae” service. Tenebrae is Latin for darkness. The service is a prolonged meditation on Christ’s suffering. As the service proceeds, the room changes from light to darkness until all that remains is the Candle of Prophecy. Covenant’s Sanctuary Choir, GraceNotes Ensemble and a string quartet will provide music for Friday's service.
