Good Friday Services
- Good Friday is the most somber day of the Christian year. On this day we consider the gravity of our sins in Christ’s death. No pre or post-service music will be included. Worshipers will gather and leave in silence.
- 12:15 will be a Service of the Seven Words of Christ as he dies on the cross. Holy Communion will not be celebrated on this day. Though it has been part of our practice at CTL, the general practice of the Christian Church is to celebrate the sacrament only on Maundy Thursday.
- 7:00 Tenebrae will present a Service of the Cross of Christ along with a responsive reading of St. John’ passion. The sanctuary will be gradually darkened throughout the service. This service is intended to be quiet, dark, and somber. At the closing of the tomb, worshipers depart in anticipation of Easter joys to come.
