Lent is not about making ourselves good enough for God: God already loves us. Lent is about making room for God’s love in our lives.

Maundy Thursday Worship
April 18th | Holy Eucharist with Foot Washing at 7:00pm
This beautiful service commemorates the Last Supper and allows us to demonstrate the example of servanthood Jesus gave in washing the feet of his disciples. We’ll gather for Holy Communion, experiencing what the disciples did at their Last Supper with Jesus. Then, we move to the foot washing, a symbol of love and care for one another. Last, the church is stripped of all material things, as the Roman soldiers stripped Jesus of his garments. Consider joining this special weekday service as a part of your Holy Week.
