Join us Thursday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m. for Maundy Thursday (Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday. The English word "Maundy" comes from the Latin mandatum, which means "commandment." As recorded in John's gospel, on his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and then gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them (John 13:34).)  We will serve communion. All are welcome.
