Carry the Cross – April 20, 2019
Groups from the church hold crosses with encouraging and truth-filled messages (like He is Risen, Jesus Lives, Only One Way, etc.) at various intersections throughout the city of Cedar Rapids on the Saturday of Easter weekend. Carry the Cross is meant to cause people to stop and think about the true meaning of Easter as they see various signs throughout town which proclaim the message of Christ. It is also inspires those holding the crosses to step out in courage and identify with Christ in a public way. Meet at the church at 9:00 AM. Take a cross and go to a designated area of the city. Hold the cross at that spot for 2 hours. Join together back at the church around noon for pizza and a time to share your experience. Please let us know if you plan to attend. Sign up below:
Good Friday Tenebrae Service:
April 19, 2019 – 6:30 PM
Start by joining us for our Good Friday Tenebrae Service
The word ‘tenebrae’ is Latin for shadows. The purpose of the Tenebrae service is to recreate the emotional aspects of the passion story. The strength and power of this service is the Scripture – Prayer – Song of Response – and light being extinguished. Most of all, we grow more appreciative for the One who was lifted up, drawing us to Himself, and we worship the Lamb who was slain!
