Maundy Thursday (In-Person & Live Stream)

April 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Holy week recalls the events of the week that led up to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. While the church gathers every Sunday to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Holy Week is a time set apart in the church year to contemplate the suffering, rejection, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.   

Maundy Thursday takes its name from a Latin word for “commandment,” as we hear once again Jesus words to his disciples, “A new commandment I give to you: love one another.” On this night at our 5:00 pm worship service, we follow Jesus’ example of humility and service by washing one another’s feet as Jesus washed the disciple’s feet. On this night, we remember Jesus was handed over to death and so we gather around the sacred story of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) and celebrate communion. At the end of worship, the altar area is stripped of its furnishings and decorations as a sign of Jesus’ abandonment. 

All our Holy Week worship services will be streaming on our YouTube page.
