In place of the usual song-driven worship, this month’s ONE featured a walk through Holy Week, which led through 6 rooms, each representing an important moment in Christ’s journey to the cross. High School students gather the first Wednesday of each month for ONE, a unique, Spirit-filled worship service in the basement Greenhouse space of Faith Lutheran.
Room One: Palm Sunday
Room 2: The Last Supper
Around a candlelit table, the groups discussed a typical Seder meal like the one Jesus and the disciples ate at the Last Supper, and why the chalice Jesus blessed for communion represented redemption.
Room 3: The Garden of Gethsemane
Room 4: The throne room of Pontius Pilate
Room 5: The Crucifixion
Each youth used a hammer to pound a nail into a wooden cross. This is a symbolic act that connects our sins to Christ’s crucifixion and death. With a nail and hammer, they acknowledged that their sins were crucified along with Christ.
Room 6: When time stood still
