Community Ecumenical Service set for Friday

Posted

The 2019 Community Ecumenical Service for Good Friday, based on the Seven Last Words of Christ, will take place on Friday from noon to 3 p.m. at the Guilford Community Church, United Church of Christ. Thirteen pastors and church leaders from churches around the greater Brattleboro area and a Choir of the Community, under the direction of Peter Amidon, will come together to reflect on the story of Christ's Passion.

Beginning at noon and at 25-minute intervals, the public is invited stay for the entire time or to come as they can and leave as they must. Each portion includes a hymn, anthem, contemporary reading or prayer, a portion of the crucifixion story and a reflection by a local pastor.

Music for the day includes traditional hymns along with anthems taken from diverse musical traditions. Choir rehearsal is scheduled for Friday beginning at 10:30 a.m. The choir is open to everyone.

Guilford Community Church, U.C.C. is located at 38 Church Drive in Guilford, one mile south of exit 1 on route 5, just past the Guilford Country Store. For more information, call Rev. Sparrow at 257-2776.
