Maundy Thursday, also known as “Holy Thursday,” is the Thursday of Passion Week, one day before Good Friday (the Friday before Easter). Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known thereafter as the Lord’s Supper.
Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples and thereby instituted this sacramental covenant meal called Communion (Luke 22:19-20).
The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another. It is good to celebrate the Last Supper on this evening in which it was inaugurated remembering Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf.
It is our custom to enjoy this sacrament together on that evening in a very intimate and unique way. Congregants come forward individually or as a family and receive the elements from one of our elders who then takes a few moments to lift that individual or family in prayer. It is arguably the most intimate moment in the entire year for our church in which our oneness in Christ and his love for us is so warmly cherished together. Come, worship, and be blessed.
The Triumphal Entry
The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!” And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,
“Fear not, daughter of Zion;
behold, your king is coming,
sitting on a donkey's colt!”
John 12:12-15 (ESV)
