Thanks to our community!

We just want to thank the community here in Empire for your overwhelming support of our members Bob & Carol Manning. Nearly two hundred of Bob & Carol’s friends showed up Thursday night to show there support and help raise funds that can help defer some of the many non-insurance covered expenses involved in medical regimen that Bob is currently going through. Unfortunately, Bob and Carol weren’t able to attend as Bob was just returning from a hospital visit.

Many visitor’s left cards of support and prayers for the Manning’s, if you’d like to do so, drop them off at the church office or mail them to the church and we’ll make sure that they get them!

Thanks again Empire!

Join Us For Good Friday Service

20160221-DSC_1200Join us for a ‘Service of Shadows” (A Tenebrae Service) at 1:00PM on Good Friday (March 25)!

The word “Tenebrae” comes from the Latin meaning “darkness.” The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus’ burial. This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus’ death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, sometimes with a final candle, the Christ candle, carried out of the sanctuary, symbolizing the death of Jesus. A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus’ tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the impact of Christ’s death and await the coming Resurrection.

All are welcome!
