We are once again joining our brothers and sisters from Creston CRC and Fourth Reformed for a Good Friday service. The service is a “Tenebrae” service, or service of shadows. It is a service in which we focus on the
death of Christ for our sins as we slowly dim lights and extinguish candles, until we extinguish the candle representing the life of Jesus. This is the only time during the year that we celebrate the death of
Christ without directly proclaiming his resurrection. That proclamation will take place Sunday morning. He is risen!
There are two significant changes this year. First, the service will be held in our building! We are excited to host both the meal and the service. The meal begins at 6:00PM (all food is provided). It is a simple meal and it will have added significance this year, for the second change is we will celebrate communion during the meal rather than as part of the Tenebrae service. You won’t want to miss either the meal or the service! (The service will begin at 7:30PM).
Please remember that the service ends in complete silence. We ask that you leave the service in complete silence as we try to remember the significance of our Lord dying in our place.
