Maundy Thursday Agape Feast and Evening of Service – April 13 @ 6pm
Location: Living Ministry – 2536 Maple Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15214
On Maundy Thursday, we remember Jesus’ last supper with his followers, and hear again his command to love one another and serve by washing feet. This year, we’re going to embody that story in partnership with Living Ministry, where our own Anna Clark serves as director of women’s outreach. We’ll begin with an Agape Meal together at 6pm, and then transition to an evening of serving Living Ministry. In Jesus’ day, washing feet was a menial task for servants to do. We will “do likewise” by helping Living Ministry with some general spring cleaning, organizing the donation room, and doing some outdoor work. Please bring a simple contribution for the Agape Meal (bread, fruit, vegetable, or cheese), and a servants’ heart as we join with our newest mission partner.
