Good Friday

Friday, April 2, 2021


Following Jesus' triumphant journey into Jerusalem this past Sunday, events have turned and today persecuted and beaten, and faces the long walk to Golgotha with a cross so heavy, it must feel like the weight of the world.


You have come with him to this place.

Is it your intention to continue to follow Jesus?

Yes? Then let us walk with him this day.


Hymn: Voices United #567, Will You Come and Follow Me


Opening Prayer


Introit: All in the April Evening


The Candle of Judas Mark 14:10-11

and

The Candle of James and John Mark 14:32-42


Hymn: Go to Dark Gethsemane


The Candles of the Other Disciples Mark 14:43-50

and

The Candle of Peter Mark 14:53-72



Hymn: Voices United #144, Were You There


The Candle of Jesus Mark 15:1-37

Hymn: Voices United #135, Beneath the Cross of Jesus


The Candles of the Women Mark 15:40-47


Is there anyone left to follow the Way of Jesus?

After all that has happened on this day, will you continue to follow the Way of Jesus?


Hymn: O Lord, Hear My Prayer
