The word "tenebrae" is Latin for shadows. The purpose of the Tenebrae service is to recreate the emotional aspects of the passion story, so this is not supposed to be a happy service because the occasion is not happy. If your expectation of Christian worship is that it should always be happy and exhilarating, you won’t appreciate this service until the second time you attend it!
The purpose of the service is to recreate the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of the events, and it is left unfinished because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.
Join us for this year's Tenebrae Service
on Good Friday, March 30th @7:00PM.
