Maundy Thursday is often centered around either the Last Supper or the Foot Washing, or both. This service is to remember the last time Jesus was with his friends at supper (communion). This year our focus is on the Last Supper and is not going to include the Foot Washing. At the end of this service, all of the ritual items are removed, the altar is stripped and washed in deep silence as we suspend our regular rituals for these three days and the three services of the Triduum.
Worship With Us
Each Sunday at 10 AM we gather to listen to the words of the Bible, including readings from the Old Testament and New Testament. Our preacher uses one of the texts for a sermon to guide our understanding, to encourage our faith, and to move us from faith to action. The framework for our worship is presented in the Book of Common Prayer. The hymns we sing together are mostly found in The Hymnal 1982, of the Episcopal Church. We follow Rite II for most services, and during the summer we add an 8:00 AM service without music, using the the Book of Common Prayer.
Sundays at 8:00 AM Holy Eucharist from the Book of Common Prayer, without music.
Sundays at 10:00 AM Holy Eucharist-Rite II Book of Common Prayer, with sung liturgy and hymns.
