Maundy Thursday Worship
April 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
One event on April 18, 2019 at 7:30pm
This is the first of what the ancient Church con- sidered 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 For- giveness, Jesus’ new commandment (mandate or Maundatum) to love one another, and the insti- tution 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.
