Good Friday–The Stations of the Cross:
On Good Friday, April 7th, 2023, First Baptist Church welcomes you back to our very popular event, The Stations of the Cross. Beginning at 7am and running all the way through 8pm, The Stations of the Cross is the opportunity to “walk in the footsteps of Jesus” as He journeyed to the cross. As you remember His journey at each of nine stations in this self-guided experience, you will be invited to read Scripture (booklet guide provided), to reflect on what was happening to Jesus in that moment, and to respond in personal, silent prayer before moving on to the next station. As on that first Good Friday, your journey and final station will end where Jesus’ did: at the cross. There you will be invited to take communion and to light a candle symbolizing the vigil between the dark hours of Jesus’ death on Friday and the bright light of His resurrection on Sunday! The nature of this event is best suited for ages 13+. Participants are welcome to spend as much time as they wish at each station, and should prepare for anywhere from 20-30 minutes for the whole experience. Spanish translation of the Scripture booklet guide will also be available.
