Maundy Thursday (also called Holy Thursday) is the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion.

Childcare will be available for ages 3 and younger.

What does Maundy mean?
Maundy is derived from the Latin word "mandatum," or commandment, and refers to Jesus’ mandate to his disciples in John 13:34 to "Love one another as I have loved you."

Our Good Friday service will commemorate Jesus's last earthly day with scripture, and special music, and pastoral message.

What's good about Good Friday?
“Good” Friday is likely an alteration of the Germanic word, "Goddes," meaning "God's" or "Holy." Only in English and Dutch is it called Good Friday. It is called Holy Friday in nearly all other languages in the world.
