Maundy Thursday Service

Thursday, March 29th, 6:30 - 8pm
Willow Springs Elementary School

What is a Meal of Remembrance?

A Meal of Remembrance may also be called Messianic Passover Seder. This meal involves the uniting of two ordinary acts that Jesus associated with the new covenant 1) eating of the bread broken and 2) the drinking of the cup of redemption which Jesus called the cup of his blood, these ordinary acts have become sacred and incorporated into the Christian liturgy as communion or the Lord’s Supper which Paul commends to us in 1 Corinthians 11:22-26. During the Thursday Night Meal, we will eat special foods that help to retell the story of the Israelites journey to freedom and then we will experience how Jesus explained the meaning of the New Covenant by revealing his sacrificial role as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world by completing the meal with Eucharist.

This evening is very much a church and community-wide family event that would be very easy to invite friends to especially as it is historic and cultural in nature. But beyond its history, the Messianic Seder tells the story of redemption through Jesus Christ. There will be worship through song and we hope to dance together at the end of the evening. Here are a couple of resources if you would like to learn more about this sacred event: Crivoice.org, and Hebrews4Christians.com.

Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help with this evening: 1 Event Coordinator and then 3-4 hosts to receive food and to seat our guests, a food coordinator, 6 volunteers for set up, 6 servers during the meal and 8 for final clean-up.

Food

The main dish will be provided by Apostles (roast chicken).

Individuals and families are asked to contribute to the meal by bringing a vegetable tray, fruit tray or dessert tray, with enough to serve 6-8 people. Please do not use a large platter and if possible something disposable.

Suggested Donation

If you are able, we have a suggested donation of $5 per person or $20 for a family of 4 or more.

You can make reservations, sign up to volunteer and tell us what you will bring, call Pam Marsh at the Church office, 703-591-1974. Please use the form below to RSVP!

RSVP Required

As His followers, ones who sit at the feet of Jesus, we are to be like Him, serving one another as we serve him, and seeking to build one another up in humility and love. Continuing in Greg Ogden’s text “Discipleship Essentials” in the Chapter called Adoption, not only are we Jesus followers but we are like Him, and as beautifully expressed in 1 John 3:1-2:

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

We are to serve and lavish love on one another just as Jesus did. Jesus served his disciples by washing their feet on the evening of the Last Supper (John 13), and went on to instruct them: If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. (John 13:14-17). While Jesus calls us from where and who we are, dirt and all, he calls us to change, to live into the joy of being adopted daughters and sons of our loving heavenly father. We will experience the joy of change that comes with inheritance we are called to live into as children of God.

Please make reservations below or by calling Pam Marsh at the office, 703-591-1974. Childcare is available by reservation.

For those who may prefer, we have hand washing available instead of foot-washing

Dates will begin at 5:00pm in the Chapel at the Pender Rd. office and begin with a word of encouragement and a 15 minute video before you leave on your personal date. There will be a monthly drawing for a restaurant coupon, entertainment coupon, or marriage resource book.

The cost of participation is $25.00 per couple for all Ten Dates and the book. We will provide the book to you on your first date. Please do not let the cost prohibit your participation, scholarships are available. Advance registration is required. Please register by one week before your first date so that we can plan for enough materials and adequate childcare. Please register below. The fee is payable online.

Childcare

Childcare will be available for kids 10 and under and the fee is a donation. Pre-registration is necessary and then again each month in advance. Initial registration for childcare is here.   Date Night childcare will open at 4:45pm and you will pick up your child at 8:00pm.

Childcare will be provided by well-trained teenagers and they will be overseen by Abigail Klein our nursery/childcare coordinator. The money donated to the childcare will go towards the Apostles teens’ mission trips in 2018.
