United Methodists hold special Easter services

The Coupeville United Methodist Church will hold services on three days during Easter week, commemorating Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The Maundy Thursday service will be held 7 p.m. April 17 in the church sanctuary. The word “maundy” comes from the Latin for “commandment,” and reminds Christians of the commandment given by Jesus to love one another as he had loved them (John 13:34).

This service includes communion, to commemorate the Last Supper.

Good Friday service will be held 3 p.m. April 18, and will be primarily a prayer service to recognize the day of Jesus’ death.

The glory of the resurrection will be celebrated on Easter Sunday, April 20, starting with a Sunrise Service 7 a.m. at Sunnyside Cemetery, followed by breakfast at the church and traditional Easter Service at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary at the church. For more information contact the church office at 360-678-4256.
