RICHMOND HILL, GA – April 1, 2021 – Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church is set to host an array of virtual and in-person services for the community in commemoration of Holy Week for the Great Three Days – Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
Spirit of Peace will celebrate Maundy Thursday safe and socially-distanced outside of the Church, 15985 GA-144, Richmond Hill, with a light supper at 6:30 p.m. followed by a worship service. On Good Friday, the service will be held via Zoom and in-person at 7 p.m. and will include a mixture of scripture readings and hymns. The Easter Sunday service will also be held via Zoom and in-person at 10 a.m. and will be comprised of special music and communion with an Easter Egg Hunt to follow for the children.
In the Lutheran church, congregants observe these Great Three Days to ultimately commemorate Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. Maundy Thursday refers to the celebration that took place when Jesus transformed into his body and blood into the Last Supper, which he shared with His disciples. Good Friday is reserved for telling the story of the Jesus’s last day of life and acknowledging His death.
The community is welcome to attend all services, but those interested in joining in-person worship services should contact the church administrator at email@example.com to reserve a space and learn about the required safety protocols.
“As believers, we have a tendency to want to move from celebration to celebration, without paying attention to how we got there. That is why we choose to commemorate the Great Three Days, which could be considered a single extended, worship service – one that is often minimally observed. It’s true that many people are busy celebrating Easter weekend with family and friends, but perhaps if we gave some deeper thought to the meaning behind these three days, we will have even greater joy on Resurrection Sunday,” Pastor Devin Strong said. “When we’re dealing with real struggles, it can feel like we’re stuck in Good Friday or Holy Saturday. That’s why we gather as Christians, to remind each other not to give up but to wait for the coming of Easter. We invite the community to celebrate this significant week with us – Lutheran or not!”
