Maundy Thursday Service
April 13, 6:30 p.m.

Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known as the Last Supper, also called Communion. Jesus also washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service, thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility. The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command”. The Maundy in Maundy Thursday refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another.
St. Peter Lutheran will serve communion at our Maundy Thursday Service in remembrance of Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples, April 13 at 6:30 p.m. The Adult Choir will share a special anthem called “Because He Broke the Bread”. At the conclusion of the service, those present will experience the somber mood of “the stripping of the altar” as we think ahead to Good Friday and the suffering and death that Jesus endured for all of us.
