We recognize that what happened to Jesus on Good Friday was traumatic not only for Jesus, but for Jesus’ followers and family, for those who witnessed the events, and even for those who caused the suffering. And we lament that trauma is part of our world, our community, and our own lives. This year on Good Friday (April 7), all have the option of receiving the love and care of Christ through foot washing and then we will begin our service with communion in the Fellowship Hall as a remembrance of the Last Supper, an opportunity to commune together with Jesus as the disciples did on the night before his death. Following communion, we allow ourselves to move into the space of grief and loss- and to stay there a bit. We will hear the scripture read, as well as several other readings, and we will respond by bringing our own burdens to the foot of the cross through options like writing, candle lighting, and prayer. We hope you will join us.
- Footwashing – 6:15 p.m. in Jubilee Hall
- Communion Service – 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall and then moving into the sanctuary for the rest of the service
