Good Friday

03 Apr

goodfriday

Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Many Christians spend this day in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering of Christ on the cross. (For a more detailed explanation about Christ’s death, listen to the Palm Sunday sermon Why Did Jesus Have to Die?)

The biblical account of Jesus’ death on the cross, or crucifixion, his burial and his resurrection, or raising from the dead, can be found in the following passages of Scripture:

The Good Friday service at Pender UMC will focus on the “Wondrous Love” of Christ and how that love manifested itself in His sacrifice on the cross. The service will include special music from the Sanctuary Choir.
