WAYS TO WORSHIP

Due to the latest shelter-in-place order for Dallas County, the Session of NorthPark Presbyterian Church has suspended all church programs and events through April 30. 

Though the church building is closed, and most staff work is being done remotely, we still remain connected as a church. Staff will continue to check email and voicemail, Deacons will continue their care. You can find the leadership directory in the drop-down under the About Us tab.

Holy Thursday: Worship
Please enjoy this at-home worship service created by Rev. Trudy Morphew. There are some simple preparations needed for this service, and there are ways kids can get involved too. Please read through the service in the morning.
 
Good Friday: Stations of the Cross
Typically, walking the stations of the cross is a journey. We move from place to place, from one station to the next, following the path of Jesus’ last week.
 
Here’s how you can make a journey through the Stations of the Cross at home:
 
1. Here are one-word prompts for each station. “Journey” through your house, yard, or neighborhood (practice safe distancing, please!) until you find something that reflects that word. If moving around is not an option, just journey through your imagination!

2. Pause to read the scripture and reflection for that station (click here for readings).
 
3. When you are ready, “journey” again until you find something that reflects the next word. Read and reflect. Repeat until you have made it through all stations.


Good Friday: Tenebrae Worship
Join us at 7:30 pm for a worship brief service of scripture, song, and gradual extinguishing of candles. Invite friends and family to worship with us by directing them to our YouTube Channel (NorthPark Presbyterian Church), or by sharing the following link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBAl8aX-kfquT74PfxIYNRg 
 
If possible, gather four candles that you can extinguish yourselves during the service.
