Thursday, April 17
7:30 p.m., Sanctuary
Maundy Thursday (“Holy Thursday”) is the Thursday of Passion Week. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday. First, River Road Church observes a special Communion service on Maundy Thursday in memory of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. Second, Jesus’ self-giving act for our salvation is observed through Tenebrae, a distinctive ceremony where the gradual extinguishing of the candles in the Sanctuary occurs while the story of Jesus’ trial and crucifixion is read.
