Lent 2021: Holy Vessels
Online Worship @ 6pm
In person Anointing & Prayers at the Cross @ 7-8pm at FUMC
We invite you to continue in Holy Week Worship on Good Friday, this time, “staying with” Jesus in his moment of suffering. The temptation is always for us to move to Easter Resurrection quickly as possible, and this may be ever more true in a year of global pandemic. Lingering in places of suffering is something many of us are all too familiar with. Yet, Jesus stays with us in our suffering, and asks us to stay with him in his suffering. Join us online at 6pm for a Good Friday liturgy where we will listen to the passion narrative from Matthew’s Gospel, sing some classic Good Friday hymns, and be given opportunity to lay our places of pain, grief, and forgiveness before the Cross of Jesus, and receive anointing with oil. For those who are comfortable and able, there will be a time to worship in-person, outdoors at 7pm where worshipers can lay griefs and prayers on the cross, and be anointed by the pastors. Let us stay with Jesus in his suffering, knowing that he is always with us in ours.
Events taking place at church will be located on the lawn off the parking lot. As with previous outdoor events, masks and social distancing are required and we will not have use of the bathrooms.
Led by: Rev. Julie Kline and Rev. Matt Weiler
