The Public

Good Friday Service
Friday, April 10th at 8pm
Livestream

For several years, Good Friday has been a special day for CTK. Typically, staff and volunteers would spend lots of time and creative energy putting together a night of worship and prayer to bring us -heart, mind, and body- into a deep meditation on the death of Jesus. The depths of this singular fact- God in flesh died on the cross- and what it means for us cannot ever be fully known. The Good Friday event has been a chance for us to grieve and feel the death of Jesus and lament for the continued presence of sin and death in our world; feeling this grief and weight of darkness was in preparation for Easter when we come in rejoicing that Jesus has overcome death and been raised from the grave. 

But, of course, this is not a typical year, so we have had to rethink Good Friday. And I am grateful that the limitations from social distancing has made us consider what is really important about this event. So we will have a Good Friday night of worship and prayer, but it will be much more intimate and scaled down from years past. It will be a chance for us to come together (virtually) to worship, pray, and fix our minds on our great high priest who can empathize with our weaknesses. Every day there are new ominous reports of infections, deaths, projections, etc. In the middle of this situation, let’s get together to declare that our God has tasted death, that we can draw near to him when we are afraid and even when we come to die. 

The church has something very special for the world in times like these, a message of hope that Covid-19 is a product of sin and that sin is a defeated power; Jesus made a public spectacle of the powers, triumphing over them by the cross. I hope you all make plans to join me for the Good Friday stream, but I also encourage you to invite people and share the link. If you know people who are lost and are wondering what good Christians have to offer or people who are believers who are struggling to trust God and experiencing fear and anxiety (or anyone in between) invite them. Let’s all be called to look to our crucified savior and Lord for hope in darkness. 

Grace and Peace,
Jason
