Relive Christ's Last Meal
Our Church verse at Haven is John 13:34 and our goal is to live by Jesus’ commandment to love one another. On the night Jesus was arrested he washed his disciples’ feet embodying love and service. He broke bread and raised the cup representing his broken body and shed blood on the cross.
As you prepare for Easter, we invite you to slow down and reflect on Christ’s love. To remember how he washed his disciples’ feet. To join at the table and take communion as we reflect on Christ’s last meal and remember how his body was broken for us and his blood shed for us.
In the midst of Easter celebrations, we pause and reflect on Christs sacrifice for us on Maundy Thursday. We’ll have foot washing and share in the Lord’s supper in a casual but reflective environment.
What is Maundy Thursday?
Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter and an important part of Holy Week.
During Holy Week we remember Christ’s journey to the cross. We begin on Palm Sunday as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. On Maundy Thursday we remember the Last Supper where Jesus washed his disciples feet, shared a meal, predicted his death. Following dinner Jesus prayed in the garden before being arrested.
The word “Maundy” comes from the Latin word meaning commandment which comes from our church verse, John 13:34.
