Worship Guide | Good Friday 3.30.18

We hope and pray you will join us as we remember the cross and celebrate the work of Jesus, sealing our salvation once and for all through his body.

Our Good Friday evensong will follow a markedly different cadence from our typical Sunday gatherings. We will be seeking to create space in our minds, hearts, and bodies to be intersected by God as we read a few passages of scripture repeatedly and sing songs of praise.  You'll notice that a large portion of the movements are the same, namely that of Assurance of Pardon.  That is intentional, as our hope is to remember and internalize the Pardon from the guilt our sin held against us, and celebrate the good news of the Cross of Christ.  The movements of liturgy are as follows:

Song of Adoration : Doxology
Song of Confession & Lament : Have Mercy
Song of Assurance of Pardon : Nothing but the Blood 
Meditation upon Word of Assurance : Isaiah 53:4-5
Proclamation of the Gospel : John 19:28-30
Song of Assurance of Pardon : In the Shadow of the Glorious Cross
Reading of Assurance of Pardon : Isaiah 53:4-5
Song of Assurance of Pardon : Precious Blood
Contemplative Reading of Hebrews 2:10-11, 14-15; 3:1
Song of Adoration : How Great Thou Art
Prayer of Thanksgiving
Benediction : Doxology
