Join the Maunday Thursday Observance

seder last supper 18 400Holy Week is coming sooner than you think! St. Andrew is planning to celebrate Maundy Thursday with a Seder Dinner:
Date: March 29th
Time: 6:00 pm

We'll re-enact a simple Jewish Seder dinner with the help of twelve apostles and some of our children and youth. Then we'll enjoy Brett Margraff's cooking! Lamb Shepherd's Pie [with mac and cheese as an alternative], salad and apple dessert are planned.

Please join us as we attempt to walk with Jesus through the last week of his life. We'll eat together, take communion together around our tables, and pray together. In anticipation of Good Friday we'll prepare the sanctuary, altar and worship area, drape with black and a lay a large wooden cross on the ground.

Please sign up Sunday and plan to support the Family Supper Table with a donation that evening.  View the flyer.
