Easter Weekend Worship Bulletin
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ!
Today is Maundy Thursday.
Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, believed to be the day when Jesus celebrated his final Passover with His disciples. Most notably, that Passover meal was when Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in an extraordinary display of humility. He then commanded them to do the same for each other.
Christ's "mandate" is commemorated on Maundy Thursday---"maundy" being a shortened form of mandatum (Latin), which means "command." It was on the Thursday of Christ's final week before being crucified and resurrected that He said this commandment to His disciples. Jesus and his disciples had just shared what was known as the Last Supper and he was washing their feet when he stated:
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another" (John 13:34).
I have attached a copy of the bulletin for Sunday. We will use this same bulletin for our Sunrise Service and our regular worship service. Please keep them and read the prayers. We do not follow each part of the bulletin during our online service, but it is good to have the prayers and songs to enjoy at home together with your family.
