Some of our delightful children made a joyful noise unto the Lord on Palm Sunday this past Sunday, April 9 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC. Join us for additional Easter Week events that celebrate the Risen Christ!
The word “maundy” comes from the Latin word mandatum from which we get our word “mandate.” On the Thursday night before His Friday crucifixion, Jesus in the Upper Room gave the disciples a new mandate or a new command:
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” John 13:34
Just before he said these words, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet. Right after he gave this command, Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper when he took bread, broke it, gave thanks for it, and gave it to the disciples saying, “This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
Maundy Thursday is a time to ponder Jesus’ new commandment, come around the Lord’s Table, and ask ourselves hard questions: How obedient am I in loving others in the same way Jesus has loved me? What are my selfless, sacrificial demonstrations of love that mirror Jesus’ washing of the disciples’ feet?”
Maundy Thursday provides an opportunity to reflect and self-examine as we each seek to answer these important questions. Join us at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, for this special worship service at 7 pm on Thursday, April 13.
Our youth in grades 6-12 from Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, will join other youth from Charleston-area PCA churches on Sunday, April 9 from 5-7 pm for an awesome night of fellowship with games, worship, dinner, and time together in the Word of God. RSVP to Mary Chapman, so our hosts at Metro North Church (109 Central Ave., 29445) can adequately prepare.
- Palm Sunday service on April 9 at 10:30 am: The children have some special singing planned for the worship service.
- Maundy Thursday service on April 13 at 7 pm: Read more here from our senior pastor about Maundy Thursday’s history and purpose. The focus of this special worship service in our Fellowship Hall will be on foot washing and the Lord’s Supper; we’ll take communion as families. Childcare will be provided for children ages 3 and under.
- Good Friday service on April 14 at 7 pm: Our sister church Metro North will join us for this special somber worship service in our sanctuary, as we meditate on Christ’s last seven sayings from the cross. Childcare will be provided for children ages 3 and under.
- Easter morning on April 16: Since our Easter Sunday service is usually packed, please park in the parking garage at 69 Wentworth St. to save our parking lots for visitors (and use your bulletin to get out for free). If you’d like to bring some Easter lilies to display in our sanctuary, please feel free to contribute. After the service, please take the Easter lilies to encourage a neighbor or shut-in. Adults, youth, and children will enjoy nibbles and coffee in the courtyard beginning at 9:15 am. At 9:45 am parents can walk their children upstairs to sign them in for a special Easter game and craft. Then join us for our celebratory Easter worship service at 10:30 am in our sanctuary. We’ll provide our nurseries for children 3 and under as usual for this service; however, we will not offer Children’s Worship during the sermon. And our newly re-formed choir will lead us with some special music!
Join us for these events as we celebrate the Risen Christ!

Join Redeemer Charleston’s team as we raise money for Water Mission, Charleston’s local charity that builds safe water solutions. Every day millions of people have to walk miles and miles just for water. Most of the time, the water they can find is contaminated and makes them sick. We are excited because Water Mission is changing lives, one community at a time, through their sustainable safe water solutions. Each dollar raised by this event is going to make an impact through a safe water community development project!
Two ways to support our team:
- WALK – Join Redeemer Charleston’s team and walk with us on Saturday, March 25 at Brittlebank Park downtown.
- DONATE – Our goal for Redeemer Charleston’s team is $1500.
