Maundy Thursday Service

by | Apr 9, 2020 | Past Events

One of the significant days in Holy Week is Maundy Thursday, where we commemorate the Last Supper that Jesus shared with His disciples.  As a community of faith, we will gather online once again on Thursday evening (scheduled for 7:00 p.m.), which will include communion and a brief Tenebrae service.  Because we will be sharing the sacrament, I want to 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.

I will anticipate the joy of worshiping with you on Thursday evening.  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

Baptism of the Lord Sunday – 1/10/21

While our pocket calendars remind us that tomorrow is the second Sunday of January, the liturgical calendar highlights for us that we will be celebrating Baptism of the Lord Sunday, where we not only remember Christ’s baptism, but our own as well, for our baptism is rooted in Christ, and it marks us as God’s people.

The Word in the World – 1/3/21

Because God inspires us to sing a new song to the Lord, we will share in the gift of music, and participate in the responsive readings through the liturgy.
