Good Friday Tenebrae Service
Friday, March 30 - 7:00 p.m. (Sanctuary)
Featuring John Rutter's "Requiem"
Good Friday services follow a tradition dating back to the Eighth Century, commemorating the final hours of our Lord’s life on earth before dying on the cross. Worship spaces are commonly lit with candles that gradually extinguish throughout the service to symbolize the fading loyalty of Jesus' disciples and friends. The gradual darkening of the church portrays the diminishing light of the world as Christ was departing from it.

This evening of worship in the Sanctuary is sure to be a meaningful part of your journey toward Easter. An expanded Chancel Choir will lead us in worship as our hearts are more profoundly filled with great hope for Easter Sunday.  Registration: none  Childcare: 3 & Under
