We’re back, people! We’re in rehearsals and looking forward for this year’s Good Friday Blues Services. We hope you’re looking forward to it, too!
This year’s services will be filled with the same soul-searching, rockin’ blues music we’ve experienced in previous years. We’ll have prayers and readings, an original piece of poetry written especially for us and artwork from around the world. You’ll have a chance to nail your blues to the cross and we’ll offer that up in prayer. Each Friday during Lent, I’ll blog about some of the tunes we’re doing. I hope you’ll join us on this journey of meditation.
Our theme this year is “Trouble and Woe” and we’re raising funds for Cyrus Centre, a local ministry that serves street entrenched youth. We know that there are youth right here in this community that are living with all kinds of trouble and woe. This ministry makes a huge difference in the lives of these kids and their families and they do it all without one penny of government funding. Last year, we raised $5000 because we had a generous donor couple who agreed to match all donations up to $2500. The same donor couple will do the same this year, let’s see if we can exceed that!
Here’s how you can help us:
- Pray with us. Pray for the good work of Cyrus Centre and for the kids who find themselves there. Pray for us as we rehearse that we’ll be diligent, patient and passionate. Pray that we’ll stay healthy. Pray for the services – that God will meet each of us there, that the Holy Spirit will guide us in our worship, that Christ will be glorified by all that’s said and sung.
- Come! And bring a friend!
- Bring your cheque –book! If you cannot come, please consider making a donation to Cyrus Centre. Their ministry is worth our support!
This year’s event will be held Maundy Thursday April 2nd and Good Friday April 3rd at 7:30 both evenings. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the House of James soon, we’ll let you know as soon as they’re available!
