Maundy Thursday Service - March 29th, 7:30 pm, Sanctuary
Be sure to attend our Maundy Thursday service - a powerful, multi-media presentation that vividly tells the story of Christ’s passion, death, and burial through scripture readings, special music, and projections of some of the greatest visual art ever created. Featuring special guest - the Rick Bean Trio, playing excerpts from Oscar Peterson’s Easter Suite, the service also incorporates elements of services known as Tenebrae – Latin for “shadows” or “darkness." During the service, candles are extinguished little by little until the room or sanctuary is totally dark, at which point, the cross is covered. However, before the congregation departs, one candle is lit to remind us that the darkness does not overcome; the light will shine again. Easter is coming! Due to the graphic nature of some of the crucifixion images, this service may not be suitable to young children.
