Good Friday Experiences for Adults & Children

For adults: It is difficult for us to imagine the journey of Jesus Christ as he set his eyes toward the cross. Good Friday is a day of resignation and sorrow. You are invited to experience your own inward journey through sight, sound, and personal experience. Walk the labyrinth. Light a candle and offer a prayer. Receive Holy Communion. Peer into the face of an icon. Through each of these we may discover anew the face of Jesus as we experience our own sense of connection to Holy Presence. Participants are invited to Mission Hill UCC anytime between 7:00 - 8:30 pm on March 30 as we journey through the final days of Holy Week.

For children: From 7:00 - 7:30 pm, there will be a separate Holy Week experience for children 10 and under in the chapel at Mission Hills UCC, led by Rev. Iona Dickinson. Parents may drop their children off in the chapel and participate in the adult contemplative experience during this time. No child care will be provided beyond 7:30 pm.

EASTER - 4/01 at 10:00 am at POVUCC

8:30 – 9:45 am - Please come early on Easter Sunday, April 1, for fellowship and continental breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. This takes the place of our usual lunch after service.
