The Service starts with the church lit by candlelight. After each reading one of the candles in the front of the church is extinguished. The Christ candle is extinguished following the reading Psalm 22 which Jesus quoted on the cross.
The purpose of the service is to recreate the betrayal, abandonment and the agony of the events. It is left unfinished because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.
Held at the Croom Church.
We will soon be learning about the Psalms, the book of songs and prayers in the Bible. Our class during the church season of Lent, a time of preparation for Easter, will be "Discovering the Psalms." The class will use a workbook, which contains a plan for daily reading and reflection.
