Maundy Thursday Prayer Vigil
Immediately following the Maundy Thursday service, the youth group is coordinating an all-night prayer vigil in Children's Chapel. Jesus asked his disciples to stay awake with him and pray throughout the night. In remembrance of that, we will do the same. There is a sign up in the narthex, where you can choose an hour block to pray reflect, and stay awake with Christ.

Maundy Thursday Youth Lock In
Starting at 7 p.m. with Maundy Thursday service, pick up is at 8:30 a.m on Good Friday
This lock in is designed to help build and strengthen relationships, while also learning more about and spending intentional time with a focus on Maundy Thursday. What is it? What does it mean? Why does it matter? We will also be playing games, calming down with a movie, and more! Please contact Taylor Durr if your youth is planning on attending this lock in.
