Escazú Christian Fellowship offers Holy Week services

Escazú Christian Fellowship will lead worshipers through the events of the last week of Jesus’ life during services today, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. The services will be at International Baptist Church in Guachipelín.

At 7 p.m. today, the church will hold a Tenebrae service (a service of shadows) which draws participants into the Holy Week story as the church grows gradually darker. Candles and lights are extinguished as Jesus’ death draws nearer.

At Noon on Friday, worshipers will hear the Passion narrative from the Gospel of John, sing familiar hymns, and hear the traditional “Solemn Reproaches of the Cross” which implicate God’s people in the crucifixion of Christ.

At 7 a.m. Sunday, Escazú Christian Fellowship and International Baptist Church celebrate together the resurrection of Christ at a sunrise service, with a light breakfast following. Escazú Christian Fellowship worships again at 5 p.m. at its regular time.

All are welcome to participate in any of the services, said Pastor Stacey Steck. For more information, please contact Pastor Stacey Steck at or 8395-9653, or browse
