2020 Holy Week Services

We welcome you to our Online Holy Week Services for 2020.

This service is a collaborative effort of the congregations of First, Second, and Maxwell Street Presbyterian Churches. Every year, our three downtown Lexington, KY congregations take turns hosting Holy Week services for each other and our community. We, at Maxwell Street, are grateful to have the opportunity to host this year, especially during what is an unprecedented situation for almost all of us living today. 

The focus of this year’s services are the Psalms of Holy Week. The Revised Common Lectionary pairs a Psalm with each day’s readings. We’ll reflect on those Psalms and how they inform our thinking about the events of Holy Week. In particular, we want to notice how Jesus’ concern for the least among us was still at the center of his purpose for being, even through his crucifixion and death.

Our hope had been that we would be able to use our Holy Week gatherings to support local ministries in our communty that work for justice and peace. The proceeds from the lunches we were going to serve would have benefitted the agencies that you will hear from each day. We want to encourage you to consider supporting them directly. Even a gift of $3-$5 will make a difference. We’ll have links on how to do that with each video we upload.

Thanks for joining us for worship. May your Holy Week be filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit as you walk with Christ to the cross.
