Maundy Thursday

"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another."

Tonight we gather at 7:30 pm. It is on this holy night that we remember the events of Jesus' last evening with his friends, the evening before he died. We recall his commandment of 'love one another as I have loved you'; we recall that the greatest love comes in the form of service, in the symbols of the towel and the basin; we recall that Jesus' love and presence is found in earthly objects, the bread and the wine; and we recall that, on this night, he was abandoned and betrayed by those who claimed to love him.

Come and join us. All are welcome.
