Maundy Thursday: Dinner Church

Maundy Thursday,
April 18
6:00 PM, Fellowship Hall (Please note different time)

RSVP below!
This communal meal and worship service will last one hour, so please come on time so we can begin promptly.

Our Third Thursday Taizé service in April is on Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, April 18.

Maundy Thursday is the day we celebrate the final meal Jesus shared with the disciples. We will gather as Jesus did with his friends, the disciples, to eat and worship together at Maundy Thursday Dinner Church, led by Pastor Kristie Finley, in Fellowship Hall.

Communal meals and worship were not uncommon in the early Christian church. We read about communal meals in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 11:33). Dinner Church is not unique today either; it is a part of our Christian heritage that is being reclaimed by churches across the country that gather to worship at the table.

Pastor Kristie was ordained as an evangelist to the ministry of a new worshiping community dinner church; she is looking forward to sharing this sacred event with you as we approach the final days of Holy Week. It is not the bounty on the table that feeds us, it is the bounty of God’s children around the table – just as when we sit together in our homes for a meal. All are invited to experience this inspiring part of Holy Week – young, old, and in-between.

RSVP below! No cost, but we need to know how many will attend so that we have enough food. It’s a simple delicious vegan stew that welcomes all, plus gluten free and fresh baked bread.

If you would like more information, contact Pastor Kristie at kfinley@firstchurchlf.org or 224.544.1967.
