Maundy Thursday Service – April 9th 
Online Worship at 6:30pm

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

WORSHIP TOGETHER:  Our worship service will begin at 6:30pm, and will last approximately 45 minutes – including communion, worship songs, and a brief meditation. You can join the worship service via live Zoom link here: online bulletin is posted here.

GATHER EARLY:  Some have expressed a desire to engage more with other members during this time, so we’ve created an opportunity to gather before the service to help facilitate more personal connection: 

  • Join the groups link at 5:30pm: We will place you in a “breakout room” (like a mini-Zoom group) with up to 10 other participants. Your breakout group will end at 6:15pm so you can join the worship service.
  • Small Group leaders – let us know if your group would like to join up during this time and we can pre-assign a breakout room for you. 
PREPARE FOR COMMUNION:  We will celebrate communion together during our online worship service on Maundy Thursday at 6:30pm. Please read Pastor Doug’s letter for more information about how the elements will be provided, and the theological basis/allowance for home communion.

    We look forward to worshiping with you and celebrating the Lord’s Supper together. 


    Blessing the Bread, the Cup
    For Holy Thursday

    Let us bless the bread
    that gives itself to us
    with its terrible weight,
    its infinite grace.

    Let us bless the cup
    poured out for us
    with a love
    that makes us anew.

    Let us gather
    around these gifts
    simply given
    and deeply blessed.

    And then let us go
    bearing the bread,
    carrying the cup,
    laying the table
    within a hungering world.

    —Jan Richardson

    We worship our living God utilizing contemplative, charismatic, liturgical, contemporary and traditional approaches during our service.
    We anticipate encountering Jesus during our worship. Join us!
