Good Friday Services

Prairie Creek Church will hold a Good Friday Service on Friday, March 30, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.

On the surface, “Good Friday” appears to be a self-contradictory title for a worship service. The strength of this service comes as we reflect together on the meaning of Jesus’ death on the cross where his innocent blood cries out not for man’s condemnation but man’s acquittal.

Trinity Lutheran Church will have a Good Friday service at 6:30 p.m.
