Maundy Thursday—April 18
A potluck soup supper starts at 6:00 pm followed by worship at 7:00 pm.
For the soup supper, bring a crockpot of soup and/or bread to share between 5:30 and 6:00 pm (although it's not required to join the meal).
A worship service which reproduces the atmosphere of the first Lord’s Supper and perpetuates its simple and meaningful remembrance follows the supper at 7:00 pm. During the service the sanctuary will be dimly lighted and at last will be in total darkness, except for the candle representing Christ. The gradual extinguishing of the candles during the reading of the scripture is symbolic of the abandonment of Jesus by the disciples, our abandonment of Jesus, and Jesus' passion to endure the darkness for us.
