Maundy Thursday

Worship at the table: As Jesus gathered with friends for the Last Supper, we gather in worship this evening around a meal with our households, so plan to eat in a place where you can view worship!  Plan to have candles and something to light them with available as part of your meal this evening. Worship will be available anytime after noon on this day. View on BLC YouTube channel, Facebook page, or visit our Share in Worship Page so you can participate in worship at a time that is convenient for your household.  At the end of the meal, there will be an opportunity to pause worship and clear your table before we resume worship with the stripping of the altar in anticipation of Good Friday.

Share a meal with another household!  Does the thought of not having to prepare dinner for your household bring tears of joy to your eyes?  Do you love to cook but don’t want to eat a pot of chili for a week? Do you miss the soup and bread suppers throughout Lent that we had in our pre-COVID life? We can’t physically break bread around the same tables, but we can break the same bread around different tables. One household will prepare enough of a simple meal (like soup and bread) to share with another household.  We’ll pair the households and the paired households are responsible for arranging the details (making plans for a contactless drop off/pick up).  Complete this form by March 25 if you’d like to be part of a pairing!  Just let us know if you’d like to:

  1. offer a meal to another household OR
  2. receive a meal from another household OR
  3. give or receive – you are just happy to take part!

Prepare (part of) the meal.  If you received a Holy Week kit, you’ll find instructions about how to make butter from scratch. Engage your household in this activity, remembering the preparations necessary for Jesus’ last supper with his disciples, and all that goes into acts of loving service – including feeding one another!  Then enjoy the freshly churned butter as part of your household’s dinner/worship. You can also visit our World Hunger Appeal page for lots of recipes and even some YouTube videos that will guide you step by step!
