Good Friday Service
April 14,2017
The Good Friday service is an opportunity for a time of contemplation during which we remember Jesus' death. 
This will be a service of scripture and music.
The source of our term for the Friday before Easter, "Good Friday," is not clear. It may be a corruption of the English phrase "God's Friday”. It is a day that proclaims God's purpose of loving and redeeming the world through the cross of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We call it "good" because we look backward at the crucifixion through the lens of Easter! "Good Friday" is not a universal name for the day. The liturgical title for the day in the Western church was "Friday of Preparation," since the time Jews used the word paraskeue (getting ready) for Friday, meaning the "day of preparation."
