Journey to the Cross

Good Friday, March 30, 6:00 p.m.


“Journey to the Cross” is a sensory experience that reminds us what Easter is all about. From Palm Sunday to Good Friday, we see our worship spaces transform from sparse to glorious, and we understand why. This intentional intergenerational worship is open to all ages. Come. Ponder.


By the end of the journey, we will have talked through the trial; touched a crown of thorns; carried a large, heavy cross and draped it in black; and heard the pounding of nails. The Good Friday service will end with darkness, thunder, and then silence to mark the time of Jesus? death. Jesus’ “body” will be placed in the tomb with guards standing by. 

Join the Journey!

We need MANY volunteers.

We encounter a large cast of characters in the Holy Week texts. If you like acting, this is a great opportunity! We need lots of actors, and help with set up and clean up, as well as props, special effects, and A/V technology. Contact the church office or Beth Tobin to sign up or find out more information. Thanks!!
