Maundy Thursday Bulletin and Instructions
As a part of this Maundy Thursday Service, we will be celebrating communion together so please arrange to have a small glass of some juice or wine and a piece of bread, biscuit or cracker for each participant. We will eat and drink together.
Order of Service:
Call to worship:
One: God sent the Son into the world
Many: not to condemn the world but to save the world that all may have abundant life.
One: What shall we return to the Lord for such bounty?
Many: Let us lift up the cup of salvation, let us call on the name of the Lord, let us pay our vows to the Lord in the presence of all.
One: We lift up the cup of salvation
Many: in remembrance of the crucified and risen one, in remembrance of those who know the cup of suffering, in remembrance of those who need liberation.
One: Lord, have mercy
Many: Christ, have mercy
One: Lord, have mercy
Let us pray:
Creator God, your love for the world is infinite and unending. Your Son Jesus our Saviour commands us to love one another, to love our neighbour, to love our enemy. So may we live this holy love day by day till all people and the whole creation know your love and abundant life; through Jesus the life of the world. Amen.
The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: 2 This month shall mark for you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year for you. 3 Tell the whole congregation of Israel that on the tenth of this month they are to take a lamb for each family, a lamb for each household. 4 If a household is too small for a whole lamb, it shall join its closest neighbor in obtaining one; the lamb shall be divided in proportion to the number of people who eat of it. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a year-old male; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month; then the whole assembled congregation of Israel shall slaughter it at twilight. 7 They shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it. 8 They shall eat the lamb that same night; they shall eat it roasted over the fire with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 9 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted over the fire, with its head, legs, and inner organs. 10 You shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn. 11 This is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it hurriedly. It is the passover of the Lord. 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike down every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both human beings and animals; on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord. 13 The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
14 This day shall be a day of remembrance for you. You shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord; throughout your generations you shall observe it as a perpetual ordinance.
