There will be an interdenominational Good Friday service at Cariboo Bethel Church, tomorrow, March 29 starting at 10 a.m.

Everyone is invited to attend this time of remembrance, worship and praise.

“On behalf of all the local pastors, we are inviting our entire community Christian and non-Christian to come to Cariboo Bethel Church and enjoy a time of worship and remembering the last critical events in the life of our saviour,” said Dan Smith, Pastor of Evangelical Free Church and a member of the Williams Lake Christian Ministerial Fellowship which is sponsoring the event.

He said great music will be lead by the Evangelical Free Church Worship Team.  Pastors from several different denominational traditions will share reflections on the arrest, trial and death of Jesus.

“The great worship music and pastor reflections last year were a highlight of the Easter Weekend,” said Cameron Johnston, Pastor of the Cariboo Central Seventh-day Adventist Church and a member of the Williams Lake Ministerial Fellowship.

“I know this year with the Evangelical Free Worship Team and the pastoral reflections from a variety of pastors will also be a blessing to all who attend,” Johnston said.

The death of Jesus at the Jewish Passover in the spring of AD 31 is a pivotal moment in the Christian church of all denominations, says Johnston. Christians believe that it was the death of Jesus that brings salvation and redemption from sin to everyone who believes and accepts the free gift of God in Jesus Christ.

The service is free with an offering to be taken to help fight family violence here in Williams lake.
