Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service April 1 on YouTube
A Maundy Thursday Tenebrae service will be broadcast on YouTube at 7 p.m. On this evening we remember Jesus gathering his disciples in the Upper Room to share a final meal. During that meal, Jesus blessed and broke the bread that it may be for us "the body of Christ." Jesus blessed and poured the the cup that it may be for us "the cup of forgiveness."

In preparation of our Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service, please gather communion elements together (e.g. bread and wine, tortillas and water, goldfish crackers and juice). Let it be something that you alone or you with others in your house may break and share together.
