The United Church of Christ, Southbury will open its doors on Good Friday, April 19th, 2019 from 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for the reading of the Gospels and for a time of prayer and meditation.
This is an annual tradition where members of the congregation, families and neighbors have the opportunity to read from the pulpit Bible the four Gospels. Each volunteer takes a half-hour slot for reading. They may fill that reading time themselves or with family members or neighbors or friends. We will continue the readings throughout the day until all four Gospels have been read out loud. The time that remains until 3:00 p.m. will be for silent meditation. Those in the past who have participated have found this to be a spirit-filled time. If you would like to participate, you can sign up either during Fellowship Hour following the 9:30 a.m. worship service or by calling the Church Office. Your participation will ensure the continuation of this wonderful tradition of our Holy Week Observances.
