MAUNDY THURSDAY | APRIL 9 – Live Stream
Worship 7PM in the Sanctuary
 

Maundy Thursday (mandatum novum in Latin) is a time of remembering the final events of Jesus’s life. It recalls the new commandment in John 13:34, where Jesus said, “I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.”

During this worship service we remember the Last Supper in the Upper Room, where Jesus instituted the Sacrament of Holy Communion with his disciples. This service closes with Tenebrae, the ancient practice of stripping the altar as a vivid and dramatic way of showing the desolation and abandonment of Jesus on the night was betrayed.

 

PRAYER WALK – INFO COMING SOON
 

Christ Church will host an All-Night Prayer Walk April 9/10, from 9:00 PM on Maundy Thursday to 9:00 AM on Good Friday, in the Covenant Chapel. The purpose is to remember Jesus’s request of his disciples to stay awake and pray. Folks are invited to come at all hours of the night to sacrifice sleep and walk through the 8 stations remembering Jesus’s teachings, miracles, suffering and death.

GOOD FRIDAY WORSHIP | 7 PM in the Sanctuary

LIVE STREAMED 

On Good Friday we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins (1 John 1:10). It is followed by Easter, the glorious celebration of the day Jesus was raised from the dead, heralding his victory over sin and death and pointing ahead to a future resurrection for all who are united to him by faith (Romans 6:5).

Good Friday Worship will include four monologues from the author James Weldon Johnson’s, God’s Trombones. 

God’s Trombones is a book of seven monologues modeled after African American oratory.  Native Houstonian, Professional Actor, & Technical Theater Director in Aldine Independent School District, Mr. Jabari Collins, will perform four of the seven monologues, “The Creation,” “Noah Built An Ark,” “Go Down Moses,” and, “The Crucifixion.”  Each monologue will be followed by an African American Spiritual sung by Bass-Baritone and Director of Music and Fine Arts of Christ Church United Methodist, Mr. Edward Gibson. Good Friday Worship will be in the Sanctuary at 7:00P.M.

 Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion. According to the New Testament, Easter is three days after the death of Jesus on the cross. Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin.
