This year for Maundy Thursday, the sanctuary has been turned into a banquet hall. Tables, complete with white tablecloths have been set in the chancel area. They surround the Altar Table. At noon and 7:30 worship (tomorrow - April 13), we will sit at these tables instead of in the pews. Throughout the worship, food and beverages will be available. We listen to the story of Jesus' last meal with his disciples and of the command to love one another. We will also share in communion with Jesus and one another as we sit at these tables.
At the end of the 7:30 p.m. liturgy, the tables, chairs, tablecloths, and everything else in the chancel area will be stripped away. We leave the sanctuary in silence as the worship moves towards Good Friday.
