Good Friday at St. Andrew
Friday, April 7
12:00, 5:30† — Family Service , 7:00† PM — Ft. Canticle Choir & Orchestra
Good Friday stands as a solemn day of remembrance of the death of Jesus on the cross. It is a holy day of reflection, prayer, repentance, and gratitude. Although we can remember the weight of our own sinfulness as we are invited to take our turn holding the cross, we know that ultimately the cross of Jesus and the weight of the sins of the world could only be borne by our Lord and Savior. Each of our three worship services will recount the seven last words (sayings) of Christ from the cross in a unique way:
Noon: Devotional Service- readings, devotions, hymns, and prayer.
5:30† PM: Family Service- where we hear the story of Jesus’ love and sacrifice through spoken word, music, and the holding of the cross. This service is geared towards families with children and youth but all are welcome.
7:00† PM: “The Seven Last Words”- where the story is primarily told through music as the Canticle Choir and a professional orchestra perform the choral masterwork “The Seven Last Words of Jesus on the Cross” by Cesar Franck. Our pastors provide context through devotional reflections and we experience the holding of the cross as a worshipping community together. Bring a friend and join us for this powerful service of music and reflection.
We need volunteers!
It takes many hands to create meaningful worship for the members of our congregation. Please consider volunteering as a Lenten offering.
