Maundy Thursday Communion Service – Thursday April 13th, 7 PM

On this evening, Rev. Shelly will lead a Maundy Thursday Communion Service in the sanctuary at 7 PM.  This ritual of communion, grounded in our liberal Christian heritage will be a simple, reflective service with short readings, prayers, and the traditional passing of bread and grape juice (no alcohol).  We practice open communion as Unitarian Universalists, meaning that all are welcome to partake. This service welcomes all ages and all theological orientations.  Rev. Shelly is offering this for the first time after hearing expressions of interest from members of the congregation in participating in a communion service honoring the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth. It is a ritual which grounds her personal spiritual journey and she looks forward to breaking bread with all those who will join in this evening service.
