Maundy Thursday

On Maundy Thursday, rather than the ritual of foot washing being offered, worshippers are asked to bring items for “Blessing Bags” to be assembled as part of worship and shared with those in need.  This will be an offering during the service that captures the spirit of Maundy Thursday, to love one another in service as Jesus did.  The following items are requested:

Tuna & Crackers packets; Granola/Cereal bars; Fruit snacks or applesauce cups; Peanut Butter or Cheese cracker packs; Feminine hygiene products; New socks; Travel/Trial size hygiene essentials: toothpaste/brush; shampoo; soap; deodorant; razors and shaving cream/lotion; ChapStick; comb/brush; tissue packs
