7551 35th Ave SW
(We rent Trinity West Seattle’s space, typically gathering at 4p.)

Good Friday
March 29
Drop-In from Noon-6p for a guided, interactive Stations of the Cross exploring key moments in Jesus’s journey to the cross designed for all ages. Sign up for a time slot, or just come.

Saturday Great Easter Vigil
March 30
7-8:15p with childcare and kid activities offered for kids up to age 9.
You can come as early as 6:40 to hang out around the bonfire and drop kids off to their classes.
This is our main Easter service this year. The service begins with a bonfire outside of the building (on the gravel near the main entrance ramp), reminiscent of the bonfire around which Peter denied Jesus and the bonfire on the beach on which he was later restored by Jesus’s grace. Then, light from that fire makes its way on a large candle into the darkened church building that will soon come alight as we celebrate that “while it was still dark,” Mary Magdalene discovered Jesus had risen from the dead and defeated even death, securing for us resurrection hope in each of our own darkest nights.

Sunday Sunrise Service
March 31 @ Westcrest Park
Join us in time to see the sunrise at 6:49a for a short service in Westcrest Park’s outdoor patio overlooking the city. Signage from the South Parking lot will guide you through the pea patch the patio overlook.

No Easter Sunday Afternoon Service
We gather typically on Sundays at 4p in Trinity West Seattle’s building and also have our offices in the building, but on Easter Sunday we won’t be gathering at our usual time.
