Maundy Thursday (or Covenant Thursday) is the Thursday before Easter when we remember Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples and his surprising act of washing their feet.
The English word "Maundy" comes from the Latin word mandatum which means "commandment." And the commandment that Jesus gives his disciples after he washes their feet is that "Just as I have loved you, you should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
And his example for how the disciples should love one another is washing their feet...becoming a servant to them.
Medina FUMC will celebrate Maundy Thursday on Thursday, March 24 at 6:00pm in the sanctuary. We will be remembering Jesus service to his disciples, and we will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion together as we remember Jesus' final meal with his friends.
We will also observe Good Friday on Friday, March 25, at 6:00pm in the sanctuary. We will remember the story of Jesus' great sacrifice for us and strip the sanctuary as we remember the three days in which Jesus lay in the grave.
Both of these service promise to be powerful. Please join us!
