What's Going On Around the Church?
Maunday Thursday @ 6pm in the FLC
Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday, is the Thursday of Holy Week where we commemorate the institution of the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion. Maundy is from the Latin word for “command.” It reminds us of Jesus’ words in John 13:34, “A new commandment I give to you.” At this service we are reminded of Jesus and the disciples celebrating the Passover meal. Prior to the meal Jesus washes the feet of the disciples to remind them, and us, of our role as servants.
This year our Maundy Thursday service will be held in the Family Life Center at 6:00 pm. We will meet around tables much like the Disciples did at that first Lord’s Supper. This is a family friendly service where all ages are welcome. Our music will be led by members of the Contemporary Service Praise Team.
Good Friday @ 6pm in the Sanctuary
Good Friday is the day where we remember Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. This somber service is sometimes called A Service of Darkness, or Tenebrae Service. Tenebrae come from the Latin word meaning darkness.
Our service this year will center around the seven last words Jesus spoke from the cross. The service will be in the Sanctuary at 6:00 pm and the Chancel Choir will lead our music as candles are extinguished after each song and scripture reading. During the service children are invited to room 212 to experience the Children’s Prayer Room.
