The Friday before Easter is known as Good Friday, it’s the day that we remember the greatest act of love the world has ever known. It’s the day that Jesus Christ willingly gave His life to save His people. For centuries, a service has been held that includes readings from the Gospels describing the Son of God’s final hours—known as the Service of Shadows. It is a beautiful and moving time of reflection that includes the extinguishing of candles, multimedia, music and hands-on elements to remind us of what our salvation cost.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent (the 40 days leading up to Easter). We invite you to swing by MKT Distillery on your way to work or school (Silos on 90 in Old Katy)—have the sign of the cross applied to your forehead in black ashes. This is to remind us that we are mortal and our only hope is in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We will be there to pray with you about anything on your heart.
We will also have coffee.

NewChurch, MKT Distillery, & Harley’s Angels present a Christmas event for children of all ages to enjoy. After church we will move our “HangTime” to MKT Distillery (5373 1st St, Katy, TX 77493).
