SME Church
Address: 243 Barrow St., Houma, LA 70360

All are encouraged to gather on this holy day as we remember Jesus celebrating the Last Supper with his disciples. This service will highlight the events of that evening.

  1. Jesus washing the feet of His disciples,
  2. Jesus instituting the Holy Eucharist as a gift to the church,
  3. Jesus leading the disciples into the Garden of Gethsemane.

The service will conclude with the stripping of the altar as a sign of the sorrow of the believers at the arrest and suffering of Christ. Families are encouraged to come and pray for an hour in our prayer garden from 7-10 pm.
