Maundy Thursday services at Grace Church are simple services of Scripture, song, supplication as we seek to hear and heed Jesus’ “new commandment” to love one another (“Maundy” is derived from the Latin mandatum = commandment). All are welcome to join us as we replay the events of Jesus’ final night with his disciples in preparation for Good Friday and Easter. We hope to see you as we gather in the sanctuary on Thursday, April 18, at 7:00 pm.
“When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, ‘Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. … 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.’"
