"Maundy" comes from Latin that means commandment. We call it Maundy Thursday because it is the day of Holy Week in which we celebrate the new commandment of Christ, “I give you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, so you also must love each other," John 13:34. Jesus gave this commandment during the last supper before Jesus was crucified. This event included Jesus's loving humility demonstrated by washing his disciple's feet. We also remember this as when Jesus instituted the sacrament of Holy Communion. On this night we also begin the journey to the cross that is continued on Good Friday.
We will gather in the sanctuary at 7:00 p.m. to worship and celebrate Communion with each other.
