The Kemptville Community Good Friday Walk of the Cross will take place April 14, beginning at 10 am. This Walk of Faith and Fellowship, organized by the North Grenville Ministerial Association, welcomes everyone who wishes to participate in the journey of the Passion of Christ.
Now in its twelfth year, this ecumenical public event marks Good Friday, the day that Jesus suffered and died for our sins. The scripture reflections, prayers and hymns on this walk remind us of the tremendous love of God for us through Christ’s sacrifice for our salvation.
Walkers will assemble at the Christian Reformed Church. Additional parking is available at Holy Cross Church and at the North Grenville Community Church. Bus pick up is available at both of these sites for transportation to the Christian Reformed Church, where the Walk will commence at 10 am. Pick up times are 9:30 am at Holy Cross and 9:45 am at North Grenville Community Church.
There are several stops on the Walk, where the group will pause for scripture, prayer and song. Representatives from the churches then carry the cross from their Church or assigned location, to the next.
The final stop is at the North Grenville Community Church where the Walk culminates with an opportunity for the participants to quietly entrust to the Lord their burdens and concerns, uniting the experience of the crosses in their own lives with the saving cross of Jesus.
Participants are asked to dress appropriately for both the weather and walking. Refreshments will be available at the North Grenville Community Church.
Come out and join in the Kemptville Community Good Friday Walk of the Cross on April 14.
