Thurs., 4-18 @6:00pm – Maundy Thursday w/Footwashing Service and Night Watch (click here)

Author jmartinek, Written Apr 14, 2019

We focus this night on Jesus’ mandate (commandment) to love one another, and to serve FootwashingGod’s world in need. Jesus washed his disciples’ feet, which was done only by women and slaves in those times, thereby breaking all barriers down, and challenging the judgments and rules of the times. Today, we too are called to love and serve, across boundaries of gender, race, class, creed, and culture. To live in this way is life-changing! Worship will include Holy Communion, beautiful music, and an optional foot washing.
You are also invited to participate in the Night Watch of prayer in 1-hour shifts throughout the night at church to commemorate Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. (Valpo Police will patrol through the night).  We will conclude our Nite Watch with the Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at 7:00am.
