Join us on Thursday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m. for our Maundy Thursday worship service with communion and Tenebrae.
This is the night when we remember the “New Commandment” that Jesus gave to the disciples at the supper on the night before his death, that we should love one another. (Maundy is derived from the Latin mandatum, which means “to command.”) We will celebrate the sacrament of communion as we acknowledge our deep human need for one another, our hunger and thirst.
After communion we will hold the service of Tenebrae. Tenebrae is the Latin term for “shadows.” It is a service of scripture lessons accompanied by the gradual extinguishing of lights as we hear the story of the betrayal and arrest of Jesus, leading to his crucifixion.
