April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Good Friday, the Friday before Easter Sunday, Christians remember Jesus Christ’s death on the cross as atonement for our sins. Good Friday is three days before Easter Sunday to represent the three days between Jesus’s death and his resurrection from the dead. Good Friday worship invites us to reflect on the suffering Christ went through for our sake by sacrificing his life for our sins. Reflecting on how much Christ suffered to pay for our sins deepens the joy and gratitude we feel for the gift of new life with Christ that we celebrate on Easter Sunday.
Please JOIN (click on join) us on Zoom at 7pm this coming Friday, April 2, 2021 of a Tenebrae service.
From Latin, Tenebrae can be translated as “shadows,” “darkness,” “death,” or “night.” A Tenebrae service is one of the oldest traditions in the Christian church for the commemoration of the passion and death of Christ. Through Scripture readings and hymns, the story of Christ’s betrayal, trial, and crucifixion is told. As the Passion story unfolds, candles are extinguished, and the darkness deepens, until with the death of Christ, only one light is left burning. This light is removed from the sanctuary, symbolizing Christ’s three days in the tomb.
