Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday – April 13 at 7 p.m.

You are invited to observe the Lord’s Supper with us and participate in a Tenebrae service.  “Tenebrae” comes from the Latin meaning “darkness.” The Tenebrae is an ancient service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. The English word “Maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum, which means “commandment.”

Professional childcare for children under 4 will be available. The ushers will also have “Kids’ Worship Bags” available filled with quiet activities for children to play with during the service.

All Holy Week services and events can be found here.
