Maundy Thursday 7PM April 13
This service commemorates the night Jesus Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper, washed the disciples’ feet, prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, and was betrayed, arrested, and taken away for trial. Called Maundy Thursday, (from mandatum, the Latin origin of “mandate”) it refers to Christ’s mandate to serve one another, which He demonstrated by the washing of feet. We gather to worship, to remember His work on the Cross, to celebrate communion, and to respond to Christ’s mandate to serve each other. No nursery provided; Children are welcome; An offering will be taken for the Deacon’s Fund of West End Presbyterian Church.
Good Friday 7PM April 14
We encourage individuals and families to use this day to pray and reflect on the significance of Christ’s life, death and resurrection. This service of corporate prayer, Scripture reading, confession, and celebration of Lord’s death helps us to consider and respond to the crucifixion and atonement of Jesus Christ for us. No nursery provided; Children are welcome; An offering will be taken for the Deacon’s Fund of West End Presbyterian Church.
