Good Friday worship services

at Faith Lutheran Church
10395 University Avenue

On Good Friday, April 18, join Faith Lutheran Church, 10395 University Avenue, Clive, Iowa, for three worship services that prepare us for Easter Sunday.

At noon, we will have an organ meditation service with Lenten scriptural readings and various composers’ interpretations of treasured Lenten hymns.

At 5:45 p.m., we will take you on an interactive Journey with Jesus where our youth will help to re-enact the events leading to the cross. At 7:15 p.m. we will offer the Way of the Cross worship experience with music by the Jubilate Ringers, Chancel Choir, organ, and orchestra. The focus of both of these worship services will be the traditional Good Friday story.

The 7:15 worship service will feature the presentation of J.S. Bach’s Cantata # 4 with choir and orchestra. This cantata, while written for Easter morning, will serve as the benediction for Good Friday as we prepare to bring the light of Easter morning back into the sanctuary.

To get to Faith Lutheran Church, located in the western part of the Des Moines area, take Interstate-235 to the Valley West Drive exit. Go north on Valley West Drive to University Avenue. Go west on University Avenue beyond the K-Mart store. Faith Lutheran Church is at the northeast corner of University Avenue and 104th Street by the Clive water tower.
