Good Friday Service: April 3 at 7 pm

You are warmly invited to attend our Good Friday Tenebrae service this Friday, April 3 at 7 pm at Emmaus Road Reformed Church in Eden Prairie, MN (meeting at Eden Lake Elementary School 12000 Anderson Lakes Parkway, Eden Prairie).  A Good Friday “Tenebrae” service (from the Latin word for “shadows” or “darkness”) has been observed in the church for hundreds of years. In this service, the Scripture readings in Matthew will trace the events of the final hours of Christ’s passion. Through the service we ponder the cost of our salvation by meditating on the depth of Christ’s suffering, his crucifixion, death, and burial. Though the Friday evening service is filled with solemnity, we know also of Sunday’s resurrection morning. Thus we may call the evening “Good.”
