Maundy Thursday Service

by | Apr 10, 2020 | Sermons

Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper that Jesus shared with His disciples. As we share the sacrament, I invite you (as you watch the service) to have a small piece of bread and a small cup of juice (or water) available for the time when we will commune together.

Prior to communion, we will also sing together – “Let Us Break Bread Together on Our Knees” – and the lyrics are . . .

Let us break bread together on our knees;
Let us break bread together on our knees;
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees;
Let us drink wine together on our knees;
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees;
Let us praise God together on our knees;
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let me again express my deep appreciation to Carol Davis, Joan Lannock, and Hal Horton for taking the time to help us with the video for our services.

May you be forever embraced with God’s steadfast love.

Peace,
tom

From the Pastor’s Pen – March 2021

…during these 40 days of Lent, we may be wandering through a wilderness and encountering a different set of wild beasts. Invisible viruses are attempting to devour us; the herd of political animosity is growling around us…”

There Is Always Hope – 2/21/21

February Newsletter

Lent is not only that time in the church year in which we are summoned to examine ourselves and our everyday preoccupations in order to take stock of the direction of our lives, but it also that time where we are invited to follow Jesus along the journey that took Him to the cross.
