A Manna Dinner for Maundy Thursday followed by Tenebrae Worhip

Maundy Thursday, the evening before Good Friday, will be on March 20th this year; and, as is our custom, we will hold a worship service (and communion) in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice for us. It will begin at 7:30 p.m.

 This year will be a bit different, though, in that a Jazz band, which will include Dan Epstein (Heather’s husband), will provide musical jazz variations of Good Friday hymns. They will play in between the readings set for remembering the events which led up to Christ’s crucifixion.

Our usual Maundy Thursday dinner will also be held a bit differently since our House of Manna is in Fellowship Hall. We have arranged through Elijah’s Promise to have food prepared for us as well, so we can begin eating along with our families at 6:00 p.m., and then from there we can go to worship.

Please inform Pastor Susan or Joan Fekete about attending the dinner. We would like to give a head count to the cooks at Elijah’s Promise. Also, we ask for a $5.00 donation per person for the meal. The proceeds will go to the benefit of the soup kitchen.

About Susan Kramer-Mills

Susan Kramer-Mills' journey as a pastor has led her to a variety of places.

She served in that position until 2000, when she and her husband accepted a call as co-pastors to First Reformed Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Since April 1, 2004, Rev. Kramer-Mills has also been working part-time as Classis Minister to the Classis of New Brunswick.
