Holy Week kicks off at the Iowa Capitol

Holy Week kicks off at the Iowa Capitol


Before Easter Sunday, before Good Friday, before Maundy Thursday, Christians of different churches and denominations will be gathering on Monday, March 21, at the Capitol to proclaim our salvation is not found in presidents and kings, but in the King of Kings, the Lord Jesus Christ.

And you are invited to the west steps of Capitol (or indoors, if the weather is bad) for a time of public prayer, worship, and a message to refocus our hearts on the Lord Jesus Christ and remember what He ultimately did for us.

This Monday service will help Iowa start Holy Week off right and help the Capitol community reflect on Christ’s purchase of freedom for us all, once and for all, from sin and death. It is a message that transcends time, culture, class, and everything that divides us. It reminds us that no matter who we are, what we do, and where we live … we are all in need of Jesus’ saving grace.
