Our Lenten Adult Forum continues this Sunday at 9am in Moore Memorial Chapel. Participants are learning to walk with Jesus in his Way of Love by developing a rule of life based on "Turning, Praying, Learning, Blessing, Resting, Worshiping, and Going" forth into the world for Christ. Led by Deacon Ken.

Maundy Thursday Foot-Washing: On the night before his death, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, an act of humble service. The Maundy Thursday Foot-Washing reenacts this event, reminding each of us that we are to be servants to others. We are looking for twelve volunteers to represent the twelve disciples at the original foot-washing. Please sign-up on the narthex clipboard.

Maundy Thursday Vigil at the Altar of Repose: The night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, first telling his disciples: "I am deeply grieved, even to death; remain here and stay awake with me." (Matt. 26: 38b) The disciples fell asleep. In order that we might do what Jesus' closest friends could not, we invite you to spend one hour in Moore Memorial Chapel, keeping vigil over the Blessed Sacrament between the end of the Maundy Thursday Liturgy and the beginning of the Good Friday Liturgy. Please sign-up for the time you will keep vigil on the clipboard located on the narthex table.

Lenten Morning & Evening Prayer and Friday Evening Stations of the Cross continue this week. All welcome!
