What to Expect at Good Friday Services
Luke Simmons / Mar 28, 2013
We're looking forward to celebrating Good Friday at 5:00pm and 6:30pm. It's going to be a special service on a special day.
We don't want to ruin all the surprises, but here are some things you can expect if you join us:
1. Expect to Encounter Jesus.
We're praying that you would have an encounter with Jesus himself. We're expecting not just to think about him, but to encounter him.
2. Expect to Reflect.
This service is very reflective. There will be some moments of thought and silence. Come ready to consider your relationship to Jesus.
[This is one of the reasons why we're encouraging young kids and babies to go to Redemption Kids instead of the service. What are typically minor distractions will feel like major ones in this service.]
3. Expect to Respond.
The crucifixion of Jesus is not something we can merely observe or reflect on. We must also respond to it. There will be some tangible ways in the service to respond to what Christ has done.
4. Expect to Be Confused if You Come Late.
Get there on time. The opening of the service is quite important for setting the tone of the whole experience. You'll be glad you took a few minutes to get there early.
