  4. Articles & Resources : Maundy Thursday Worship-at-Home Materials

    “Maundy” comes from the Latin word mandatum, or commandment, reflecting Jesus’ words “I give you a new commandment.” It was on this day that Jesus had his last meal with his disciples. Jesus broke bread, washed the disciples’ feet, and hinted at his coming crucifixion and betrayal. At the time, the disciples did not realize the significance of this moment, but now we recognize how powerful and special this last supper was. As a result, it is our Christian tradition to celebrate this evening with the gift of worship and the sacrament of Communion, just as the disciples did on that night. 

    This year, many of us are unable to gather together in person to share in Communion, so our staff has created an at-home liturgy to remind us that God meets us at every table. 

    There are two versions of the Maundy Thursday Home Worship – one for individuals and one for families or groups. Individuals are also invited to join Marietta for their Maundy Thursday worship through the Zoom video-conferencing platform on April 9 at 6:00pm.
