Good Friday Tenebrae Worship Service
8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
First Lutheran Church 120 5th Ave NW, Minot, ND 58703
Join us for our Good Friday Tenebrae Worship Service at 8:00 pm in the Sanctuary. There will be Scripture reading, prayer, music and time for reflection as we hear again the story of God redeeming the world through Christ's death on the cross. This service is a version of the ancient Office of Tenebrae (a Latin word meaning darkness or shadow). Tenebrae is observed on the last three days of Holy Week, particularly on Good Friday, to impress upon the minds and hearts of believers the consequences of human sin and the greatness of our Lord’s sacrifice. The darkened church together with the bare altar and cross emphasize the starkness of the day.
