Maundy Thursday Worship
Maundy Thursday—April 14

6:30 p.m. in person & livestreamed

“Maundy” is from the Latin word for “command”. On this night, we remember the command Jesus gave his disciples during the Last Supper: that we love one another. We also celebrate with our young people who are receiving their First Communion tonight. During worship, you will have an opportunity to come forward to receive Communion. Communion kits will be available for those who prefer not to come forward.

Good Friday Worship
Good Friday, April 15

12:00 p.m. in person only
6:30 p.m. in person & livestreamed

We join millions of Christians around the world in celebrating the ancient service of Tenebrae, which means “darkness” or “shadows”. The service is a meditation on Christ’s suffering and death. As scripture is read, candles are extinguished and the lights in the worship space are gradually dimmed, reminding us of the darkness that covered the earth during the crucifixion of our Lord.
