Holy Week 2019

Holy Week Services

 

Maundy Thursday Service—April 18th at 6 pm

 

Maundy or Holy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. In contrast to the joy of Easter morning when we worship our risen Savior, the Maundy Thursday service is solemn, marked by the shadow of Jesus’ betrayal.
Two events are the focus of Maundy Thursday:
Before the Passover meal, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. By performing this lowly act, Jesus demonstrated how Christians are to love one another through humble service.
During the Passover meal, Jesus took bread and wine and asked God to bless it. He broke the bread into pieces, gave it to his disciples and said, “This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Then he took the cup of wine, shared it with his disciples and said, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” (RSV Luke 22:19-20)
