Maundy Thursday ideas

Here are some of the ideas I’m kiicking around for our Maundy Thursday service this Easter.

There are 3 parts to the Maundy Thursday service:
Foot Washing, Communion, The Gethsemane ‘Watch’.

The theme I’m heading towards is “Submission”, This is what stands out to me from Jesus’ behaviour throughout this night. this is played out in the 3 aspect of the story.

Foot Washing:
Jesus submits to the disciples and assumes the role of a servant to wash their feet

Communion:
“This is my body, broken for you”, “This is my blood poured out for you”, these are the ultimate statements of submission and sacrifice

The Gethsemane “Watch”:
“Not my will but yours”, Jesus ultimately submits his will to the Father’s, laying down his own desire and trusting his Father.

Those are the ideas, just have to shape it into a service now!
