For a number of years members of our First Hillsville UMC church family have participated in a prayer vigil on Good Friday. This year we have two locations and the folks at both sites are encouraged to participate. This call to prayer asks us to meditate on the immediate events in the life of Jesus leading to His death on the Cross.
We enter into this time of prayer in sorrow and repentance seeking God’s forgiveness for our sins, walking with Jesus on His way to the Cross and kneeling at the foot of the Cross in awe at His sacrifice so each of us would have the opportunity to receive eternal life.
Our Fulcher street church location will be open on Good Friday, April 22 from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM. You are invited to participate by coming to the church for your special time of prayer. In front of the altar, there will be a form that has selections from the four gospels for your personal meditation.
If you are unable to come to the church, you are encouraged to set aside a time to pray at home.
