The community is invited to the annual Ecumenical Good Friday Worship sponsored by the Danbury Ministerial Association. This year it will be noon to 1 p.m. Friday, April 7, at the First United Church of Christ, 802 Prairie St., Lakeside Marblehead.
Participating clergy include Rev. Marvin Rettig, Chaplain for the Lakeside Fire Department; Rev. Dan Ring, St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church; Rev. Kurt Burrows, Resurrection Lutheran; Rev. Kay Cox, First United Church of Christ; Rev. Chris Young, St. John and St. Paul Lutheran; Rev. Jerry Phelps, Lakeside United Methodist Church; and Rev. Brad Hall, Chapel on the Lake. The theme is “Water Marks,” a look at how images of water permeate the life of Christ, and our life “in Christ,” as we experience a washing and renewal that carries us through death into new life.
An ecumenical choir will practice at 11 a.m. before worship. There will be a free-will offering and collection of food items, all to benefit the Danbury Food Pantry.
