It was on this night that Christ instituted, by His command, our continual remembrance of Him and His Work on our behalf when we share in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. ​ Maundy Thursday falls on the Thursday before Easter. It honors the Washing of the Feet and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles, as described in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, the canonical gospels. Good Friday The AME Zion Church commemorates Good Friday. Traditionally, there is a Worship Service with selected hymns and meditation scriptures. The Seven Last Sayings from the Cross are sermonically presented. The First Word “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.“ Luke 23:24 The Second Word “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.“ Luke 23:43 The Third Word “Woman, behold thy son!. . . Behold thy mother!“ John 19:26,27 The Fourth Word “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?“ Matthew 27:45,46 The Fifth Word “I thirst.“ John 19:28 The Sixth Word “It is finished.“ John 19:30 The Seventh Word “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.“ Luke 23:46 The Invitation to Christian Discipleship is extended and the clergy gives the benediction.

    First AME Zion Church Virtual Worship Sunday, April 25, 2021 The Call to Worship and Invocation ​ This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. In this new year, we pray for renewed hope and love in our land. Dear Heavenly Father, teach us how to pray and how to obey Your Holy Word. Amen. ​ Morning Hymn -- Take The Lord With You Everywhere You Go ​ Performed by Russ Thomas, 5th Avenue Church of Christ, New York ​ ​ Gloria Patri ​ Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen. ​ The Apostles' Creed I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; The third day he rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen. ​ ​ Scripture Reading -- Romans 6:3-11 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? ​ 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. ​ 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: ​ 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. ​ 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. ​ 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: ​ 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. ​ 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. ​ 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. ​ Altar Call/Pastoral Prayer -- I Know the Lord Will Make a Way Performed by Bishop Gilbert E.

In this new year, we pray for renewed hope and love in our land. Dear Heavenly Father, teach us how to pray and how to obey Your Holy Word. Amen. ​ Morning Hymn -- Take The Lord With You Everywhere You Go ​ Performed by Russ Thomas, 5th Avenue Church of Christ, New York ​ ​ Gloria Patri ​ Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen. ​ The Apostles' Creed I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; The third day he rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
