Good Friday Service - April 10, 2020

(On-line Service)

  Opening and Welcome

  Call to Worship Rev. Stephen Terpstra

Who has believed what we have heard?  And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?  Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we account him stricken, struck down by God and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities.  Upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed.

Prayer of Invocation Rev. Tyler Wagenmaker

Let us Pray: O Christ, who forsook no one but was forsaken by the closest of friends, who committed no crime yet was sentenced to death, we enter your presence in awe and adoration.  On this day, millennia ago, you could have saved your life, but you refused to betray the purpose for which you were born.  When love required you to shoulder a cross, you summoned the strength to bear it.  Today, O Christ, as we sing and pray about the cross, teach us its meaning once again.  May we be ever grateful for Jesus the Christ and what he has done for us.  Amen
