Join Rumple for Good Friday worship services Friday starting at 11:45 am via Facebook Live.  Good Friday will begin with special meditative music offered by Eric and Dave starting at 11:45. A "Tenebrae: service of shadows" will begin at Noon with readings from the Gospels about the last hours of Jesus' earthly life. We will have seven candles, one to extinguish after each reading, and a Christ candle. We encourage you to gather 8 candles in your home, if you are able, and to extinguish your candles after each reading, as we do. The Christ candle can remain lit as it stands as a symbol of the coming Easter new life. There will be no closing spoken words in this service but we will end the service in silence.The bulletin is available on our website under Sundays.
