Maundy Thursday Service | 04-01-2021
Dear Church Family and Friends,
Today is Maundy Thursday, a time to remember the betrayal of Jesus from Judas. It is a somber time for us to reflect on the broken friendship and selfishness that led Judas to turn on his leader, the Savior of the world.
Here is the service:
Prelude — I Am the Bread of Life, John Carter
Call to Worship
God invites us to the table. All are welcome, even those with their own agenda.
Christ serves us at this meal.
All may partake, even those who feel unworthy.
All are welcome; all are served; all are loved.
Prayer of Confession (Unison)
Loving Christ, on that night long ago, you knew that your hour had come. You knew full well what lay ahead of you. Your disciples loved you and followed you, but they also failed you. They would fail you yet again that night, and one would betray you. We have also loved you and followed you. We have also failed you, and we cannot comprehend the love that you show us, the love that is our example, the love that tells us to do as you have done for us. May we be like you, Master, servants of all. May all see how we long to be your faithful disciples. May all see how we love each other, just as you have loved us. In your holy name we pray, Amen.
Opening Hymn When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of glory died, my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride.
Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were a present far too small; love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.
Scripture — Matthew 26:17-30
Closing Hymn Were You There
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? Were you there when they crucified my Lord? O! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they pierced him in the side? Were you there when they pierced him in the side? O! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. Were you there when they pierced him in the side?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb? Were you there when they laid him in the tomb? O! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Scripture — John 13:34-35
Postlude — When I Survey The Wondrous Cross, John Carter
In Remembrance of this night, let us leave in silence
