GOOD FRIDAY
March 30th Everyone come together in the Sanctuary at 7:00 pm for Good Friday service.

Considering attending our Good Friday Service?
This year’s worship embraces the wider picture of God’s plan from Creation to the foot of the cross. The design of this interactive service includes congregational singing, solo’s, choir and readers, as together, we reflect on the meaning of Good Friday. Selected music and scripture bring our faith story together in a rich new dimension. Plan to join us, and invite a friend.

I have found that Good Friday seats a fresh appreciation for our celebration of Easter Sunday! I pray you will too.
