4-18-20144-18-2014Good Friday service
Special Good Friday service open to public Northwoods Vineyard Church, 418 Kaphaem Rd., invites the public for a presentation of “The Twelve Voices of Easter” to be performed on Good Friday, April 18 at 7 p.m. The service is free and open to all religions and all ages. In Christ’s hours of dark sorrow, from His arrest in the garden to His agonizing death on the cross, friends and followers abandoned Him and foes assailed Him. Yet voices of faith and adoration were still heard among the uncelebrated players in the Easter story – a common criminal, a Roman soldier and a weary traveler. This original drama, written by Dr. Woodrow Kroll, has been abridged for this special presentation and is sure to enrich your understanding of Easter, planners note. They say, “Join us on Good Friday for this unique and moving glimpse of Easter from the perspective of the characters involved in the most pivotal event in human history.” In addition to the dramatization, the service will include a time of praise and prayer. For more information, call the church office at 715-453-6700.
