  * “Maundy” means “commandment.”  This worship (where we hear again Jesus’ command to love others as    he has loved us along with instruction of the Lord’s Supper) begins a three-day worship experience concluding  with Easter (Resurrection) Sunday.

Good Friday Worship @ noon and 7:00 pm

This worship focuses on the crucifixion of Jesus by which our sins are “paid for” in full by his death.  It is “good” in our belief that by God’s act of grace Jesus gave his life for our sins.
