Good Friday and Unity

This Good Friday was a victory for the Kingdom of God and the church in Auburn, California. As Christians we often speak about the cross being the unifying factor among believers, but it is infrequent to actually see that truth physically manifested. This is what made Friday night so beautiful!

We were blessed to host 9 local churches together under 1 roof at our South Campus for a joint community Good Friday service. This was birthed out of a lot of prayer and relationship building over the years between the pastors in our community who desire to see the church powerfully used under the single banner of Jesus Christ. Officially, the churches represented were:

  • Auburn Grace
  • Auburn Presbyterian
  • Bell Road Baptist
  • Calvary Chapel Newcastle
  • Combie Bible Church
  • Crossroads Church
  • Gold Country Church
  • Sierra Grace
  • Sierra Reach

Worship-3

The worship team was comprised of several leaders and musicians from the various churches. Through the evening, seven different pastors each shared a portion of Psalm 22 as we reflected on the work of the cross (Sorry I don’t have pictures of them all!). The attitude was humble, the message was Jesus, the worship was powerful, the Spirit was present, the environment was healing, and I believe the heart of God was blessed. I’m excited to see what the future holds for the churches of Auburn!

One thought on “Good Friday and Unity

  1. […] This year we held two Good Friday services which saw approximately 1300 people gather to remember and celebrate the cross of Christ. Our noon service at the North Campus focused on the dichotomy of the cross. For more on that, check out this blog post. At 6:30, we offered our South Campus for a community wide Good Friday service where 9 churches gathered for an amazing time of worship and reflection on Psalm 22. The recap of that event with some pictures can be found here. […]
