Church invites public to Maundy Thursday service

ORANGE — A Maundy Thursday Service will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 17 at Trinity Baptist Church of Orange. Dr. Bob Webb, pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, will conduct the service which will include prayer, special music, Scripture reading by the members and The Last Supper Communion.

“This is a very special service and we wish to invite the community to attend the Maundy Thursday service,” Webb stated.

Maundy Thursday is a Christian observance around the world. It is the day before Good Friday and commemorates Jesus Christ’s last supper with the Apostles and the initiation of Communion observed in many Christian churches. Maundy Thursday is a public holiday in a number of countries.

On April 6, Trinity Baptist Church started the celebration of Easter with the placement of prayer cards on a cross. On April 13, palm branches were placed on the cross, and, this Easter Sunday, members and guest are encouraged to bring flowers to place on the cross.

Special music will be presented by the Trinity Baptist Choir under the direction of Dan Cruse.

The church’s activities for Easter are to remind both children and adults of what Easter is all about. Everyone is invited to join Trinity Baptist Church for our Maundy Thursday Service and at 11 a.m., Sunday, for our Easter Service.

The church is located at 1819 N. 16th St. in Orange.
