~Maundy Thursday Service of Holy Communion, April 17, 7:00 p.m.
On this night we begin the Three Days during which we participate once again in the saving power of Jesus’ passing over from death into life. The Maundy Thursday service includes the words of Jesus’ new commandment (mandatum, from which Maundy comes) to love one another. As a sign of our calling to follow Jesus’ example of humility and service, we may have our feet washed as Jesus washed the disciples’ feet. On this night in which Jesus was handed over to death, we also gather around the Lord’s Supper. At the conclusion of the service, the altar area will be stripped of furnishings as a sign of Jesus’ abandonment.

~Good Friday Tenebrae Service of Shadows, April 18, 7:00 p.m.
The Good Friday service continues the journey through the Three Days of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection. From Latin, the word Tenebrae means “darkness” and commemorates the final hours of our Lord’s life on earth, as he suffered death upon the cross. The gradual darkening of the church portrays the diminishing light of the world as Christ was departing from it.
