Here is a simple tool (designed by Shana) for coaching our families during the Three Days (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday).
As I write these words, the sun is out, the birds are singing, and we have officially entered our annual commemoration of the final week of Christ’s first ministry. Multiple things will be happening this week, and I am very excited about this year’s worship!
Maundy Thursday. We will be celebrating a unique Lord’s Supper this year. I will post a video Thursday morning containing a short message and the liturgy of the Lord’s Supper. You are free to partake of the meal at home, using your own elements. If you would like me to deliver sealed elements to your home on Thursday morning, contact me through email, phone, or a comment on this post. I will bring individual cup-and-wafer packets to you!
Good Friday. The EPC leadership has requested that we make this year’s Good Friday into a time of prayer and fasting, joining together with believers from other Presbyterian denominations, as well as the Anglican Church in North America. I will post a short meditation and time of prayer on Friday morning. The attached document contains a list of twenty-one prayer requests, coming from our Office of the General Assembly.
Easter Sunday. A special Easter broadcast will play on WCSR 92.1 FM at 7:30 AM. Please spend thirty minutes after the service in personal or family prayer and worship. From 10 AM to Noon, our cross will be on display on the front lawn of the church building. Feel free to stop by and add a flower or two, as a testimony of the hope that blooms eternal because of what Jesus did in his death and resurrection.
