Maundy Thursday-Evening Worship

Sitting at tables, we will pray, hear God’s Word, share a glass of wine (or sparkling grape juice), eat a light snack, and share in Communion.  Worship will happen around the table.  We will share the liberating story of God’s love—as found in the life that Jesus offers to us and invites us into as he commands us to love one another.
