Encountering God…In Jesus' Empty Tomb?
Speaker: Kevin Derksen
(Reminder: No Sunday School today and the service starts early at 10:00am.)

This year our Holy Week activities will include a Maundy Thursday Service.

As a commemoration of the last supper, this service will include communion, but a different experience of communion from that of Good Friday on the next morning. Here we will gather around tables in the basement of the church to enter deeply into the meal and its story. We will be invited to eat, as Jesus’ disciples were invited to dine with him on the night of his betrayal.

Our formal sharing of communion will take place at a separate point in the service, so older children and youth are welcome to gather around these tables as well.

As we eat with Jesus and his disciples, experiencing the story of this meal, we will be drawn into the shadows of the dark night to come.
