Everyone is welcome to attend our Holy Week services. The Palm Sunday and Easter services will be at 10:30 a.m. over the next two Sundays. The Maundy Thursday service will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
Maundy is from the Latin word for mandate, based on John 15:12,17. Jesus gave His followers the command to love one another. Maundy Thursday is a time to remember the events of the Lord’s last evening with His disciples in the Upper Room.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. John 13:34
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent. The biblical witness is found in the opening epic of the human story: “you are dust and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19). However, from Biblical times, sprinkling oneself with ashes has been a mark of sorrow for sin. Several times the Bible mentions people repenting in dust and ashes; for example: Mordecai (Esther 4:1), Job (Job 42:6), the inhabitants of Nineveh (Jonah 3:5-6), and Daniel (Daniel 9:3-4).
