Thursday, April 13, 7:00pm
Join us for dinner (bring a $10 donation to cover the cost of the food – Mediterranean cuisine!! – we’ll have catered) and a special worship service to follow.

Maundy Thursday is a day when we commemorate several significant moments – Jesus instituting the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) and Jesus washing His disciple’s feet while giving them the command to love one another. Maundy comes from the Latin word meaning “commandment”. We’ll have a special service that will include the traditional foot washing ceremony.
