Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday, also known as “Holy Thursday,” is the Thursday of Passion Week one day before Good Friday (the Friday before Easter). Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known as the Last Supper. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday.

First, Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples and thereby instituted the Lord’s Supper, also called Communion (Luke 22:19-20). Some Christian churches observe a special Communion service on Maundy Thursday in memory of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. Second, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service, thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility (John 13:3-17). Some Christian churches observe a foot-washing ceremony on Maundy Thursday to commemorate Jesus’ washing the feet of the disciples.

The word "Maundy" is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another.

We have worship at 7p with a celebration of holy communion.  



 

Good Friday

Good Friday, also known as "Holy Friday," is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated as the day on which Jesus was crucified.

Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” First Peter 3:18 tells us, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”

Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which Christ’s death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, and a message centered on Christ suffering for our sake.  The events of Good Friday should always be in our minds because the death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith.

We observe this day at 7p.

 

Easter Day

On Easter Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is the most well-attended Sunday service of the year and the most joyous!

We believe, according to the Bible, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter. Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Please join us at Easter Sunrise Service at 7a or Second Service at 10:30a.
Breakfast will be served following the Sunrise Service.
An Easter Egg hunt will take place at 9a for pre-school - 6th grade students.
