*Call to Worship (from John 3:16 & Hebrews 4:14-16)

    • Reader: God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but have eternal life.
    • Praise Team: We have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession.
    • Reader: We have One who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.
    • Praise Team: Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.


Opening Hymn #504, “The Old Rugged Cross


Almighty and most merciful God, whose will is that all people should be saved, and who did give Your Son our Lord Jesus Christ to be the expiation for the sins of the whole world: We humbly bow in adoration and praise before Your holy throne on this Good Friday and thank You for Your unspeakable gift through Your Son.

Gospel Reading : John 19:1-16


The Reproaches:

  • Reader: O My people, what I have done unto you, or wherein have I wearied you? Testify against me. Because I brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, you have prepared a cross for your Savior.
  • Praise Team: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: Because I led you through the desert forty years, and fed you with manna, quail, and water bringing you into a land exceedingly good, you have prepared a cross for your Savior.
  • Praise Team: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: Before you I opened the Red Sea: and you have opened my side with a spear. I went before you in a pillar of cloud: and you have brought me to the judgment hall of Pilate.
  • Praise Team: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: I gave you food of manna and quail in the desert and you have beaten me with blows and stripes. I made you to drink the water of salvation from the rock: and you have made me to drink gall and vinegar.
  • Praise Team: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.
  • Reader: I gave you a royal scepter: and you have given my head a crown of thorns. I lifted you up with great power: and you have hung me upon a cross.
  • Praise Team: O God, holy and mighty, have mercy upon us.


Gospel Reading: John 19:16-30 (1st candle is extinguished)


Adoration at the Cross

Reader: “Far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to Me, and I to the world” (Galatians 6:14).

. . .

Reader: “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree” (1 Peter 2:24a)

. . .

Reader: “You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot” (1 Peter 1:18-19).

. . .

Reader: Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18a).

. . .

Reader: We see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death” (Hebrews 2:9a).

= = = =


Prayer of Intercession (in unison)

O merciful and glorious God, You have made all of the human family and You hate nothing which You have made. You, O God, do not will the death of anyone, but in Your magnificent love desire that all of the human family would come to You by faith in Christ. Have mercy upon us, and especially upon all those who do not have faith in You, or those who deny the faith in Jesus Christ. Take from all those who are wandering from You, ignorance, hardness of heart, bitterness, contempt, so they may be led by Your Holy Spirit to that divine relationship with You. We pray this in the name of Jesus, along with the prayer He taught us to say, Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

  • Praise Team: As we conclude this time of worship we go in the name of Jesus Christ and live in the salvation made possible by that first Good Friday.
  • ALL: Amen and Amen.

Thursday 4/1/21, 7:00 PM Maundy Thursday

A Service for Maundy Thursday

April 1, 2021  7:00pm


Musical Prelude

Greeting and Statement  

We gather together on this Maundy Thursday to remember Jesus’ love for His disciples and observe God’s love for us.  This is a solemn service, made ever more so by the Covid-19 pandemic, that separates us from many others and from our normal rhythms of life.  Let us observe this service knowing that many in our faith community are doing the same in their own way and that as we all observe together this day, we are drawn together as the Body of Christ. For this we give thanks, let us worship.


Call to Worship (Based on John 13; 1 Corinthians 11; and Exodus 12)

  • Leader: A table is set before us. A feast has been prepared.
  • PEOPLE: A meal of bread and wine, of meat and bitter herbs.
  • Leader: The Lord calls us to this supper of remembrance.  The Lord calls us to serve and be served.
  • PEOPLE: As we break the bread and share the cup, our understanding may fail us. But we will never forget Christ’s example. We will never forget the full extend of His love.


Opening Hymns:


Opening Prayer:

Gracious and Loving God, your Anointed One, Jesus the Messiah, on the night before He suffered, instituted the Sacrament of His body and blood. May we receive this Sacrament with thankful hearts as we remember the love, humility, grace, and mercy of our Lord Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen.

Scripture Reading:     John 13:1-17, 31b-35


Prayer and Litany of Confession:

  • Pastor: My sisters and brothers, Christ shows us His love by becoming a humble servant.  Let us draw near to God and confess our sin in the truth of God’s Spirit.     
  • ALL: Most merciful God, we as members of Your Church called by You,  confess that often our thoughts, words, and deeds have not been that of Christ. Those times where we have failed to love one another as He loves us, times where we have pledged loyalty to Him with our lips and then betrayed, deserted, or denied him, as the disciples did on that night so long ago. We humbly ask that You would forgive us, and by Your Holy Spirit make us faithful in every moment and in every place, especially during those times of testing or trial. We offer this in the name of Jesus our Messiah, Your Son, the Savior of the world. AMEN.


Words of Pardon:

  • Pastor: The Good News is that Jesus Christ died for you and me while we were still sinners. Yes, Sisters and Brothers, that proves God’s love for us!  In the name of Jesus Christ you are forgiven!
  • People: In the name of Jesus Christ you are forgiven!
  • All:         All praise, glory, honor, and thanks to you Almighty God. Amen.


Special Music

New Testament Reading :     Luke 22:14-23

Homily:    “The Christians-Easter Paradox”

Hymn #629,   “You Satisfy the Hungry Heart” 

Prayers of Institution and Communion

  • Pastor: As we now come to receive Holy Communion, we see communion happening at many levels. With this bread we remember the words of Jesus who after giving thanks to God, broke the bread, gave it to His disciples and said, take, eat, this is my body broken for you.
  • People: Jesus said, This is my body.
  • Pastor: Jesus then took a cup filled with wine. Jesus gave thanks to God and gave the cup to His disciples saying, Drink from this cup all of you. For this is my blood of the covenant poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this as often as you shall drink it, in remembrance of me.
  • People: Jesus said, Drink from the cup for the forgiveness of sins. And do it in remembrance of Me.
  • Pastor: Gracious and Loving God, we humbly ask that you would pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered in this sacred place and upon these gifts of bread and juice. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ that we may be for the world the body of Christ redeemed by His blood. By your Spirit make us one with Christ and one with each other and one in mission to all the world. Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours Almighty God now and forever. Amen.


The Lord’s Prayer (sung to the tune of “O God Our Help in Ages Past”)

“Our Father, Lord on heaven’s high throne, most holy be Your name.   Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth—in heav’n the same.

Give us this day the food we need; forgiven may we be;  Into temptation do not lead; from evil set us free.

Your is the kingdom, yours the pow’r, and You’re the majesty.    So shall it be from this glad hour and to eternity.”


Sharing the Lord’s Supper

Hymn #422,    “Jesus, Thine All-Victorious Love

The Final Word

  • Pastor: Go in peace and live by faith, knowing that Jesus Christ goes before you to show you the way, behind you to give you courage, below you to lift you up, above you to protect you, and beside you to walk step and step each day of your journey. Go in Peace and live by faith, in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  
  • People: We go in peace and with grateful hearts. Amen
