2017 Easter Week Services at First Parish [ 2017-03-17 12:28 ]
Good Friday Healing Service — Friday, April 14 at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary
A quiet, reflective service of healing. This service consists of reflections on the seven last sayings of Jesus interspersed with silence and beautiful music. We reflect on the reality that life and death, sorrow and joy are intertwined and we invite all to enter into the story of Jesus’ death in order to prepare ourselves spiritually for the renewal of Easter morning. This service is appropriate for adults and teenagers. Childcare will be available during the service. Those who are grieving the death of loved ones or any life losses have found this service to be helpful and healing.
