Stations of the Cross Art Exhibit

April 1, 2010

If you’re in the area, you definitely need to make plans to come out tomorrow evening for our annual Stations of the Cross, Good Friday art exhibit.

Redefined Student Ministry

Good Friday service and art exhibit

Tomorrow evening only! 7 to 9 PM. Short service starts at 8 PM, but you’re still welcome to view the art between 8 and 9.

Church in the Word. 430 Airport Road. Elgin, IL.

Because Good Friday came before Easter. There is no resurrection without a death, and while the resurrection is our hope, the cross is where our lives were restored.

How? Show up any time between 7 and 8:30 PM (preferably between 7 and 8 PM, but whatever). There will be some basic instructions, but the idea is you start at the beginning and meditate on Christ’s journey from the garden in Gethsemane to the tomb. There are 14 points along the journey (called “stations”) and at our place, each will be represented by scripture, art, and an artist’s statement. (That’s assuming, of course, these last couple stragglers get their stuff turned in.)

You can take as much or as little time as you want at each station. Check out the art. Meditate on what that journey must have been like.

Yes, Stations of the Cross is a Catholic tradition. No, we’re not Catholic. We liked the idea, the interactive/personal format, and we thought it’d lend itself well to some art. And our student ministry is into art.

There will be a short service at 8 PM that you won’t want to miss either. Pastor Hoban has a great presentation planned that will inspire and teach you, and then we’ll share a short time of worship. ‘Cause after all of that – there’s really only one response.
