We join together this Maundy Thursday at the La Jolla United Methodist Church. For online PBUMC participants, you can find the service video and bulletin here.
*From the La Jolla UMC website* The Maundy Thursday celebration is traditionally an honoring of Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. Told in all four of the Gospels, this tradition celebrates the institution of Holy Communion. In addition, the Gospel of John tells of a new commandment to love one another. The word “maundy” is from the same Latin root of the word commandment.
We join together with the people of Pacific Beach UMC for an in-person and online service to confess and be pardoned, to explore the meaning of this important tradition, and to celebrate Holy Communion. Online participants are invited to prepare bread and grape juice (or wine as appropriate for your home).
Scripture passages: Exodus 12:1-14
Note that there is no audio-only sermon for Maundy Thursday. Please watch the video to experience the full message!
