Good Friday - Tenebrae Service

Tenebrae is a service of reflection and meditation on the final hours of Christ’s life on earth. Through song and scripture, the service leads us from Judas’s betrayal to Christ’s death. As the room grows progressively dimmer as each new shadow is revealed, we are invited to feel the weight of all that has happened. The service ends in silence and darkness, until Easter when He rises again.
