Good Friday Service - April 15, 2022

Greetings, Brothers and Sisters!

Tomorrow, our Good Friday Communion service will be at 6 PM. What a blessing to remember and celebrate together what our merciful Savior Jesus did for us nearly 2,000 years ago!

When you eat dinner tonight, remember that Jesus was washing his disciples' feet and eating Passover with them. When you go to bed tonight, remember that Jesus was likely still awake praying in the Garden of Gethsemane. And if you wake up in the middle of the night, remember by then Jesus had been betrayed, arrested and abandoned by his disciples and was being mocked and beaten by soldiers and lied about in sham trials. By breakfast tomorrow, the crowds will have chosen Barabbas over Jesus. And as you drive to work or start school, our blameless Jesus will have been so tortured that he will need help carrying his cross – our cross – to Golgotha.

Jesus loves you and gave Himself for you 1 Peter 3:18 says,

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God.

Praise the Lord, brothers and sisters!

Here are a few details for tomorrow's service:

  • We are planning to have In-N-Out after service like last year.
  • Because of the meal preparation, we will not have any outside seating available tomorrow night.
  • Unlike last year, we will not be able to use the parking lot between the church because Maverick Theater will have a show that night. Please do not park in front of the theater or in the parking lot between the church and the building next door.
  • I'm not sure how tight parking will be in the area, but if you are able to come early and are in good health, please consider leaving parking nearest the church for visitors or those who might need to park closer.
  • If you are out of town or battling traffic, here is the link to the service.

On Resurrection Sunday, we will still be having Equipping Hour and Children's Ministry at 9 AM. For those who have been learning at Equipping Hour how to enjoy God's Wore more, please come ready to share a verse that has been impacting you as you meditate on Psalm 119:49–64. We'll also have a brief time for you to share a favorite quote or reflection from Chapters 5 and 6 of Before You Open Your Bible. I'm looking forward to a joyous weekend with you!

Grace and peace,
