Welcome to NLCF’s online Worship Service for Good Friday. While we are not able to meet together in person, we hope and trust that God will meet with us wherever we are. So wherever you find yourself this morning, begin by praying with those you are with.
To open our worship, read Isaiah 53:3-6 out loud:
3 He was despised and rejected—
a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.
He was despised, and we did not care.
4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
it was our sorrows that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
a punishment for his own sins!
5 But he was pierced for our rebellion,
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.
6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
Yet the Lord laid on him
the sins of us all.
To help us worship together, use the following songs to sing to the Lord.
Pastor Kevin recorded a song he wrote called “I’ll Never Know”

For our Scripture reading today, please read Isaiah 53:7-9 out loud:
7 He was oppressed and treated harshly,
yet he never said a word.
He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.
And as a sheep is silent before the shearers,
he did not open his mouth.
8 Unjustly condemned,
he was led away.
No one cared that he died without descendants,
that his life was cut short in midstream.
But he was struck down
for the rebellion of my people.
9 He had done no wrong
and had never deceived anyone.
But he was buried like a criminal;
he was put in a rich man’s grave.
Ask those you are with what they would like to pray for. In addition to those requests, please ask God to help you really connect with Him as we remember the death of Jesus

To close our time of worship, please read 1 Peter 2:24 out loud:
He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
