Maundy Thursday

Thursday, April 9th at 7:30pm

Text...

 

Come worship with us for this Thursday of Holy Week, April 17th at 7:30 p.m.
The Maundy Thursday service is a time of the holiest of sacred music, prayer, communion, scripture, candlelight, bell tolling, and silence as we journey together through the passion of Christ.
Wherever you are in life's journey, you are welcome here: friend, neighbor, stranger, alike.
Want to know more about Maundy Thursday? See below.

“Maundy Thursday” is derived from the Latin word mandatum meaning “commandment.” The primary commandment of Jesus’ message is found in the story of the Last Supper when Jesus humbles himself and commands his disciples to “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34).
Following communion, the service of Tenebrae follows, meaning “darkness” or “shadows,” and has been practiced by the church since medieval times. We join Christians of many generations throughout the world in using the liturgy of Tenebrae. Readings trace the story of Christ’s passion, music portrays his pathos, and the power of silence and darkness suggests the drama of this momentous day.
As lights are extinguished, we ponder the depth of Christ’s suffering and death; and through the return of the small but persistent flame of the Christ candle at the conclusion of the service, we anticipate the joy of ultimate victory. Come journey and worship with us.

Good Friday

Friday, April 10, 2020 at 12 PM – 3 PM

 

Good Friday is the holiest of holy days. We, at East Weymouth Congregational Church recognize that one should have a place to be alone with their thoughts and prayers. As in past years we will once again open our doors to provide an opportunity for everyone who desires some quiet time with their thoughts, and with God, to enter for as long as you wish. Traditionally the sanctuary is open between 12 Noon and 3:00 P.M. Come, for a few minutes or for the entire time. There is sacred music and candles so you can light a candle with your prayer.

 

You can find this event live on Facebook Live and Zoom.

Palm Sunday

Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 10 AM – 11 AM

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter. The liturgy reenacts Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem with a procession and palm branches.

The Gospels describe Jesus entering Jerusalem before his crucifixion, riding on a colt or a donkey. A crowd of people greeted him with cries of Hosanna, which is an expression of prayer or joy, and threw coats and branches at his feet to honor him. The Gospel According to John specifically mentions palm branches, which were a sign of victory in pre-Christian times.

The observance of Palm Sunday dates back to at least the fourth century, recorded first by Egeria in her account of her pilgrimage to the Holy Land in the early 380s.
