Maundy Thursday, April 17

*Last names starting with:

On this night we celebrate Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. We listen to Jesus say the words we now speak at communion. We hear his command to love each other as he loves us. This year for Maundy Thursday the whole family is invited to enjoy a potluck meal as part of worship in the fellowship hall. After eating we will process to the sanctuary and eat a different meal in the Lord’s Supper.

Good Friday worship is a somber time for quiet reflection. We will hear Jesus’ last words as the lights in the sanctuary slowly dim to black.

We, the congregation of First Lutheran Church, proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament, calling people to new life and discipleship. We grow in faith, hope and love as a community of believers through worship, prayer and study. We serve people in need by sharing God's love in our community and throughout the world.
We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
