Wednesday, March 20, Emmaus/Emaús Lutheran Church, 1925 Summit Avenue, will host the last of the Wednesday fellowship and worship services of the FaithWorks Racine Lenten pilgrimage. Between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. tour guides will be available to welcome people and to give tours of the building, including the second floor murals created by David Holmes.
At 6:00 p.m., everyone is invited to Fellowship Hall for a full meal. During this time, there will be an opportunity to hear the story of Emmaus/Emaús through a short video.
At 7:00 p.m. there will be a procession, beginning at the circle drive at the south entrance to the building. The crowd will shout “Hosanna” and wave palms, as they greet Jesus and a live donkey making their entry into Jerusalem. The crowd then enters the sanctuary to a changed mood. The time which precedes Jesus’ death is reenacted by the children of Emmaus/Emaús, with the story being told through mime and narration. At the end, all are invited to the haunting experience of entering the tomb—a time for prayer and reflection.
Note: Due to predicted cold weather, the route of Jesus’ and the donkey will be shortened from the previously announced route, and will not include a pass around the field.
