Join us for Maundy Thursday Worship as we recall Jesus’ last supper with the disciples. We’ll share the story of that evening before Good Friday, and share Holy Communion in remembrance of him.
Worship times — 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall

Maundy Thursday — The Last Supper
March 28 2013
Key Verse: “Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’” Luke 22:19
Time: 30 C.E.
Since Last Week: After entering Jerusalem, Jesus prepared his disciples for his death and resurrection as they celebrated the Passover together.
Background: The Passover celebration was a remembrance of the Exodus event, in which God saved the Israelites by leading them up out of slavery in Egypt. In that event, God made a covenant with the people in which God would be their God, and they would be God’s people. In the Last Supper a new covenant was made. By Jesus’ body and blood, all humanity has been saved from sin and death.
Community: How does your community of faith celebrate communion? What does it mean to you?
At Home: From what do you need saving? How might you surrender that to God?
