This Week At Old South Haven Presbyterian Church

                                               HOLY WEEK

                                        MAUNDY THURSDAY
7:00pm                            We gather in the Gallery
                                          “Voices At The Table”
    Each of the disciples remembers a moment from Jesus’ ministry, remembers the way he was changed by his words, his deed. On this night each of them wonders what will happen to him, what will happen next?
    These reflections will be followed by remembering The Last Supper and our participating in receiving Holy communion
