Good Friday Darkening Service
On Friday, April 2nd, we will host our annual Good Friday Darkening Service. This is a one hour service observing the final hours leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion. There is not a sermon, but rather the service consists of a rotation of songs that engage the congregation alternating with various narrations and Scripture readings by individuals both men and women. After each song, some of the lights will be systematically turned off as we observe the final hours of Jesus’ life. At the conclusion of the service at 8pm, all the lights will be turned off in the auditorium except for the backlit cross on stage and at the exits. Everyone is encouraged to leave in silence to dwell on the death of Christ in anticipation for Easter morning. This is a powerful service you will not want to miss as part of your Easter weekend! Plan to arrive a few minutes early as seating will fill up. There is also a mask only room on the North side of the building where the service will be livestreamed and the darkening replicated for those who wish to socially distance.
