Good Friday Combined Service

This year for Good Friday we will be participating in a combined service with several area Bible believing churches.

7 Sayings, 6 Churches, 1 Faith, 1 Baptism, 1 Lord


Several area churches will be gathering to reflect on the crucified Christ by focusing on each of Jesus’ Seven Sayings on the Cross.
