Maundy Thursday and Easter Services

Dear Family,

Here is a quick rundown on Family Bible Church events to celebrate our Lord’s passion and resurrection this weekend:

Maundy Thursday service–Thursday at 6:30 P.M. I know, some of you are wishing we would make up our minds: “Is it on Monday or Thursday?” Maundy Thursday, sometimes called “Holy Thursday” has been observed by Christians from various church traditions to commemorate the events recorded in the Gospels the evening prior to Jesus’ arrest and trial. The name “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word mandatum, which means “commandment,” from Jesus’ words that he spoke that night recorded in John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another….” At our service we will share the Lord’s Supper that he instituted on this night long ago.

Easter Sunday–Our worship service will begin at 10:30 A.M. There will be an Easter egg hunt following the service. Parents please bring a bag or basket for your kids to collect their eggs.

May the Lord bless you as you remember all that he has done for us this week,

Pastor Colin
