 Maundy Thursday

April 17, @ 7:30 p.m.

“THE LAST WORD---It Is Finished”


Texts:   John 19:30-37


What is finished? Whose work is complete? The work of Jesus and his Father are complete. Jesus said, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work” (John 4:34). Now, at the cross, that work is accomplished.


“It is finished.” The work is complete. No one can add to it. No one needs to try. We just lift up the cup of salvation and bless the name of the Lord.


Join us this evening at the Table of the Lord for this moving and sober reflection of Jesus’ Passion.

Order of Worship

“Who Turned the Dark On?”


Texts:   John 20:1-18

Mary Magdalene goes to Jesus’ tomb “while it is still dark.” It is an obscure line. Why did John include it? I believe it is there for a reason. So many of us find faith and hope only when we have reached the absolute nadir of our own resources. When it is darkest, the light comes. This brief verse also reiterates something John said at the beginning of his Gospel.


This is the great feast day of the Christian Church! Join us in worship and at the Table of the Lord this morning!

Sermon title and scripture for 9:30 service:


“The Shining”


Texts:   John 20:1-18


No, it’s not Stephen King. It is the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ attesting to the Living Light of the World, Jesus Christ. This is the day of the greatest miracle ever known. Life out of death, light out of darkness, hope out of despair, joy from mourning

 Christ is risen!

Join us as we celebrate Jesus together!
