Community Ecumenical Service set for Friday


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.
