Serving Presence
7:00pm, Thursday, April 13, 2017
Passage: John 13:1-35
Series: Presence
Duration: 21 mins 29 secs
At the Last Supper the night he was betrayed, Jesus set a new example or model of service to one another. At first his disciples did not understand what their Lord and Teacher was doing; but then he explained that loving service to one another was to be the hallmark of his followers. We conclude this moving worship by stripping the sanctuary of all decoration, and draping the cross with a black cloth in readiness for the dawn service to follow. [Organ/Choir - Maundy Thursday]
