Maundy Thursday Service of Remembrance and Tenebrae
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.
Please use this form to make dinner reservations for your family. If you are in need of childcare for dinner or the service, please fill out the form as well.
