On Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, the emphasis is on the Last Supper—a Passover meal Jesus shared with his disciples the night before his death. On this evening, Jesus surprised his disciples by washing their feet, a task that was normally done by a servant. Afterwards he told them, “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you” (John 13:15). During the meal, Jesus took bread and wine and blessed them. He broke the bread, saying “This is my body, given up for you” and offered the wine saying “This is my blood, poured out for you … Do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19-20).
We will celebrate Maundy Thursday with a message from Pastor Terry Feix and taking part in communion. Maundy Thursday is an opportunity for us to set our minds on Christ leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
