The Three Days: Maundy Thursday, April 13, 2017-6:00 pm

This Week in Worship

Scripture:  John 13:1-17; 31-35

Meditation:  "Whom Will You Serve?"  Rev. Leslie  

About this evening service:  Today is called "Maundy Thursday."  Maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum, which means "command." Tonight we keep the feast that Jesus shared with his disciples on the night of his arrest, and we remember his new commandment to love one another even as he has loved us.  We celebrate with a "Fellowship Meal" or "Love Feast" which concludes with Holy Communion.  Tonight is the beginning of the "Three Days of Easter," which are the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
