Good Friday Tenebrae Service

All are welcome - service in the Sanctuary.

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness." The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, sometimes with a final candle, the Christ candle, carried out of the sanctuary, symbolizing the death of Jesus. A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the impact of Christ's death and await the coming Resurrection.

Gender Beyond the Binary: Understanding What It Means to Be Transgendered - Speaker: Kelly Storck

Pastor Liz has had several conversations with members expressing an interest in learning more about what it means to be transgendered.  Simply put transgender is a term used to describe people whose gender identity differs from the sex the doctor marked on their birth certificate.  Gender identity is a person’s internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman (or someone outside of that gender binary).

But there’s nothing simple about gender and sexual identity. It is complex. It is emotional and can be incredibly challenging for us to wrap our minds around.  This particular talk is designed to be place for you to ask your questions.  Both adults and older youth are welcome.

Kelly Storck, MSW, LCSW, is a therapist in private practice with a specialty in gender diversity and transgender healthcare. Along with seeing individuals and families in therapy, Kelly presents on trans issues to local and national audiences, co-facilitates a support group for gender expansive children and youth and is writing a gender workbook for children. Kelly is a resident of Webster Groves, enjoys being outdoors, yoga, and spending time with her family.
