Holy Thursday – Potluck & Foot Washing Service
April 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.
Join us for a family potluck meal and service. Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday, gets its name from the Latin translation of John 13:34: “I give you a new commandment” (or, in Latin, “Mandatum novum“). It was as Jesus washed the feet of his friends and followers that he said these words.
We’ll share a meal together. Then, Dan Archibald will tell the story of how Jesus washed his disciples’ feet before they shared their last meal together. Next, we’ll take part in a simple Communion: commemorating this last meal by sharing bread and wine at our tables. Following this, the children will lead the way in washing the feet of those in attendance. We’ll finish with a final prayer before ending our time together.
Join us at 6 PM in the chapel at Reservoir Church. Please bring a dish to share. Children are most welcome.
