Maundy Thursday will be here, but it is going to be a joint celebration with the Methodists and will begin at 7PM this Thursday, April 2 with music and communion. Pastor Bill will help with communion and reading a couple of verses.
"Maundy Thursday" recalls Jesus' last night on earth with His closest associates. At that time He washed the feet of His apostles and instituted the "Last Supper," which today is usually called, "Communion." During the Last Supper Jesus asked us to "...do this in remembrance of me." So, for 2,000 years Christian Churches have celebrated His memory as He requested by periodically have Communion. Originally Maundy Thursday was about foot washing wherein Jesus displayed his "servanthood." Today most Protestant churches do not wash feet—not because we're above washing feet, but because very few people want to submit to having their feet washed. It is still done, however. It seems many people are ashamed of having their feet seen.

Easter Sunday follows Maundy Thursday three days later. Easter is the most Holy Day in the Christian year as we celebrate the "Risen Christ." After Jesus died the early followers scattered and feared for their lives. When so many saw Jesus in person, the early community of believers became unified, stronger and unafraid. It was the resurrection— Easter—that solidified the early Christian community into a cohesive unit that has changed and saved lives for nearly 2,000 years.
