Maundy Thursday is a day that, in the life of the church, is all about the table. It is a day when we remember the last supper that Jesus shared with his beloved disciples and the words that he left them with, ‘love one another as I have loved you.’ It is a day when we ponder the events after the meal, when Jesus knelt to wash the feet of his friends … the one who would betray him, and the one who would deny him. It is a day filled with meaning and centered on a table of love, forgiveness, hope, and hospitality. We hope that you will join us as we gather to remember this piece of our sacred story. The service will be held this Thursday evening, April 18, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. in our church sanctuary.
