Opening Hymn
Saranam, Saranam (Refuge)
United Methodist Hymnal # 523

Jesus, Savior, Lord, lo, to thee I fly:
Saranam, Saranam, Saranam;
thou the Rock, my refuge that’s higher than I:
Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.

Verse 1
In the midst of foes I cry to thee,
from the ends of earth wherever I may be;
my strength in helplessness, O answer me:
Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.


Verse 2
In thy tent give me a dwelling place,
and beneath thy wings may I find sheltering grace;
O lift on me the sunshine of thy face:
Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.


Verse 3
O that I my vows to thee may pay,
and that by thy faithfulness to me each day
may live, and on thy love my burdens lay:
Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.


Verse 4
Yesterday, today, fore’er the same,
lo, the heritage of all who bear thy name;
to ransom them from sin the Savior came:
Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.


Opening Prayer
with Pastor Jeremiah

Ever-gracious God, we gather in this evening hour as friends gathered with Jesus in an Upper Room long ago. We come bearing the marks and burdens of a bitter and broken world. We come from anonymous places, with dry and thirsty spirits. Remind us, in the breaking of the bread, of our need and of your great sufficiency. Refresh us and make us whole with the cup of forgiveness. Draw us nearer to each other in mutual service and closer to you in the covenant of faithfulness and thanksgiving. As the night advances, deepen in us a sense of your steadfast love for us in Jesus Christ, our friend and Redeemer. Amen.

with Noami Cann as Judas, Ben Cann as John, Sydney Elliott as Jesus,
Merian Giese as Peter, Isaac Lee as James, Will Zigterman as the Narrator,

Prayer of Confession & Assurance
with Pastor Hannah

God of mercy and love, when Judas went out that door,
a part of each one of us went with him.
We have all betrayed Jesus in one way or another.
And when the disciples sat unmoving at the table, each waiting for the other to wash their feet, a part of each one of us sat there with them.
We have all sat unmoving, waiting for someone else to do what we should be doing ourselves.
And when Peter did not want Jesus to wash his feet, a part of each one of us joined him in that rejection.
We have all resisted the new hierarchy of Jesus, where those who are greatest become loving servants to all.
Forgive us for immobility, for our fear. Help us to again return to following Jesus who would lead us to hope, forgiveness and eternal life. Amen.

with Pastor Jeremiah

Patient God, we have received the elements of bread and wine. We have come to the table, imperfect, flawed. Yet You, In Christ, receive us and offer to us healing and hope. Forgive our waywardness. Heal our brokenness. Challenge us to live lives of faithfulness and discipleship. Amen.

Closing Hymn
Go to Dark Gethsemane
United Methodist Hymnal #290

Verse 1
Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter’s power;
your Redeemer’s conflict see,
watch with him one bitter hour.
Turn not from his griefs away;
learn of Jesus Christ to pray

Verse 2
See him at the judgment hall,
beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs his soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of Christ to bear the cross.

Verse 3
Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
there, adoring at his feet,
mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete.
“It is finished!” hear him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die

Verse 4
Early hasten to the tomb
where they laid his breathless clay;
all is solitude and gloom.
Who has taken him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes;
Savior, teach us so to rise.

with Pastor Hannah
