MAUNDY THURSDAY WORSHIP SERVICE
Theme: Take Off Your Shoes
Ritual of HAND/FOOT WASHING & COMMUNION

Thursday, April 14th

This is a livestreamed service only.
Access the service at: https://youtu.be/A43E8dvWjSo
PLEASE NOTE: service will be made live on YouTube at 8 am on Thursday, April 14th.
We invite you to have the following elements prepared to engage in this sacred service at home:
  • a basin/bowl filled with water
  • towel
  • bread/crackers
  • wine/juice

In a room full to the brim with emotion, Jesus offers a tender, loving, and humble goodbye, stooping low to wash and caress his disciples’ feet. Like the water splashing within the washbasin, his actions ripple out: “Go and do likewise. Just as I have loved you, love one another.” This Maundy Thursday you are invited to take off your shoes and remove the walls and protective layers you have built up. Allow yourself to be loved fully by God. Allow yourself to be filled to the brim so you can go out and fill others too.

The service is adapted from liturgy by Sanctified Art written by Adrian White (they/them) who is a MDiv student, committed to the inclusion and thriving of all children of God. They are proud to serve on the board of More Light Presbyterians.

HOLY FRIDAY WORSHIP SERVICE
Friday, April 15th at 10 am
In-Person and Livestreamed
We experience Jesus’ Passion through music, story and art. Guided by the visual art of artist Ken Cooke we will go on a journey through the Stations of the Cross, an ancient meditative pilgrimage inviting us to walk the Way of Sorrows with Jesus to his death. Traditionally depicted in fourteen visuals, the Stations highlight pivotal moments in Jesus’ final hours.
We are grateful for the participation of the Knox Chancel Choir.

EASTER SUNDAY WORSHIP
Intergenerational & Communion
Theme: An Expansive Life
Sunday, April 17th at 10 am
In-Person and Livestreamed
This Easter we remember the story of the women going and finding the empty tomb of Jesus. They remember what Jesus had said, which compels them to go out and tell the story. Even in utter shock, they return to their deepest knowing and allow themselves to receive the expansiveness of resurrection. Their imaginations and hearts expand, and they must take action in response. This Easter can we allow ourselves to be filled with expansive hope? Can we trust in the expansive promise of new life, and carry that promise with us wherever we go?

We are grateful for the special music performed by the Knox Chancel Choir & Full House Brass.
