Most people see Good Friday as a “dark” day, not wanting to think about Jesus being tortured and dying. They want to  
skip ahead to the joy of Easter. But Good Friday had to happen to make Christ’s victory over death possible. He couldn’t have paid the price for our sin, unless he suffered and died as a perfect human. Good came out of darkness – just as it can today.

You may be going through a tough time – financially, relationally, health wise, or emotionally. It may seem like everything is against you and there’s no way out. I want to encourage you that God knows your situation, and is working from His end to help. His timing is never too late. Seek and trust Him through the difficulty, and He will work it out for your good.
The annual Good Friday service is 1pm at Colonial Woods, Friday, April 19th. Join us to remember Jesus’ sacrifice. Then, attend a life-giving church this Easter Sunday and celebrate the new and transforming life that Christ gives!
