Maundy Thursday Worship Service, Decatur Campus
April 17th – 7:00 pm
What is a Maundy Thursday worship service? First, it is a service on Thursday night. Why? It was on a Thursday night that Jesus gathered his disciples into the upper room to give them his final instructions, sometimes called the Upper Room Discourse. It was at that meeting that Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper. Therefore, during this Thursday night worship service, we will worship the Lord in receiving the Lord’s Supper.
Second, it is called a “Maundy” service because of an old tradition. Before the Bible was translated into German or French or English, it was translated into Latin. The term Maundy refers to mandatum meaning command. In the upper room, Jesus told his disciples: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)
