Maundy Thursday, April 6, 7pm
Maundy Thursday is one of the most holy and solemn nights of the Christian year. This service includes communion, which is open to all, as we remember Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. On this night we remember Jesus’ last hours, we go with him to the garden of Gethsemane, and walk with him as he is arrested and taken to be crucified. The service begins in light and moves slowly into darkness as the story of that last night is read and we leave in silence and darkness to await the coming of dawn on Easter morning. Please join us in person or online at https://nmchurch.org/livestream. All are welcome.
Good Friday Faith Walk, April 7
For more than 15 years local pastors and church members have joined together on this solemn day to walk the stations of the cross on the town green. Due to Covid the walk was on hold for two years. This year the local churches are once again gathering to remember God’s great gift of love for all people. The walk will begin at the steps of the First Congregational Church at noon. Those gathered will walk and carry a wooden cross remembering the long walk that Jesus took to the cross. Stopping at stations around the green the story will be read accompanied by prayer and song. The walk will end on the steps of St. John’s Episcopal Church. Participants are from the First Congregational Church, St. John’s Episcopal Church, New Milford Methodist Church, the Apostolic Christian Church, St Francis, and the Spiritual Care Department of New Milford Hospital. All are welcome to join this Ecumenical witness of Christian faith on this holy day.
