Service of Communion and Tenebrae at 7:30 pm

On this night before his crucifixion, Jesus drew together his closest friends around a table to prepared them for the drama to come. We will gather around tables in Fellowship Hall and share in the Lord’s Supper, and then proceed to the sanctuary for readings, hymns, and songs, as the darkness approaches. Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another…. As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love” (John 13:34; 15:9).
