Were You There? Good Friday Concert at First-Plymouth Church

What: Were You There? Good Friday Concert at First-Plymouth Church
When: Friday, April 15th from 7p to 8p
Where: First-Plymouth Church, 2000 D Street, Lincoln, Ne

The Good Friday, April 15, 7 p.m., concert, Were You There? will be held in First-Plymouth’s sanctuary and online at www.firstplymouth.org. The Holy Saturday concert, “Handel’s Messiah” will be April 16, 5:30 p.m., in the sanctuary and online.

On Good Friday, soloists Icy Simpson, Ariel Merivil and Marques Garrett will be featured with First-Plymouth’s chamber choir (Schola cantorum) in heart rending interpretations of Negro spirituals. This spiritually powerful music is sure to deepen our experience with Christ’s passion. Scriptures, prayers and pastoral reflections will offer counterpoint to the musical expressions guiding our journey to the Cross.

The Good Friday service will follow the Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross. Each section will include a scripture and then a song or spoken reflection to further express the text. The Negro spiritual songs share Biblical stories that demonstrate God’s faithfulness and human resilience in the face of trials. These songs represent powerful testaments of faith borne from a community that endured deep suffering and yet held onto hope through it all.

Freewill donations will help First-Plymouth’s JustNeighbors initiative pay off neighbor’s medical debt in Lincoln. Childcare provided.
