 Good Friday Events @ RCUMC
Friday, April 18th
5:30 pm - Cross Walk
This is a yearly tradition for our Church.  We begin at the Skate Park downtown (one block east from the Post Office) as we take turns carrying a large wooden cross through our community and up to our Church!  We stop along the way for Scripture readings and prayers - this is a powerful community witness, and everyone is invited to join us!
6:30 pm - Soup & Bread Supper
We end our Cross Walk with a Soup Supper at the Church; but if you cannot join the Cross Walk, please still come for the soup!  (There will also be leftover lamb from our Seder on Monday!)
7:00 pm - Good Friday Worship
A solemn service of witness and mourning as we remember Jesus' suffering and death for us on the Cross.  Includes the last 7 utterances of Christ, Holy Communion, and a message, "Why is Good Friday Good?"
And thank you to everyone who joined us for our Seder Supper on Monday, April 14th - it was a wonderful evening with our Israeli Missionary Yoel Ben David of Jews for Jesus!
