We are honored that you have chosen to join us for worship. On the Friday before Easter, we gather to remember the death of Jesus. Why commemorate such a moment in time? Because it marks the moment when Jesus died for you for the forgiveness of your sins. Without the sacrifice of the cross, we would not have the triumph of the resurrection. That’s why today is GOOD.
Tonight, we will also be sharing in communion at the conclusion of our service. Communion recalls the last time Jesus gathered with his disciples before the crucifixion. For some Christians, communion is a memorial remembrance of the Last Supper, while others believe that communion is a means of grace by which Jesus becomes truly present in the bread and wine. We invite you to participate in whatever way you feel meets your convictions and honors God. Please take some time before the service begins to prepare bread and juice or wine so you can participate with us.
Again, welcome and thanks for being here. May God bless each and every one of you.
