Maundy Thursday Worship
March 29, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
April 13 Maundy Thursday (Noon & 7:30)
This is the first of what the ancient Church considered a three part worship that moves from Maundy Thursday, to Good Friday, to the Vigil of Easter or Easter celebration. There are three foci for this evening worship, Confession and Forgiveness, Jesus’ new commandment (mandate or Maundatum) to love one another, and the institution of the Lord’s Supper. Worshippers are invited to receive the laying on of hands for the forgiveness of sins at the beginning of the service. The stripping of the altar concludes the service as a reminder of the stripping and whipping Jesus received on our behalf on the night he was betrayed and arrested.
