Please join the Ministerial Alliance of Springfield and others in the community on Friday, March 29, 2013 at Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, 2208 E. Kansas at noon as they reflect upon the magnitude of Christ's enormous sacrifice on the cross. This service is designed to bring believers together and provide an opportunity for all people to take time out of their busy workday to reflect on God's amazing love for all mankind. The reflective theme for the service will be the “Seven Last Words of Christ from the Cross.” Good Friday is a solemn occasion when many people all over the world recall the last words of Jesus during His crucifixion. It is also “an opportunity for people to take a closer look at themselves, and specifically a time for introspection as we seek His grace to heal both our individual shortcomings and those within the wider community” said Nicholas Stojakovich, Secretary and Member of the
Alliance. Area Pastors who will be leading reflections and participating in the service include, Pastor Marcellus Leonard, Heritage Free Will Baptist Church; Reverend Howard Peters, Fresh Visions Community Church; Reverend Ophilis McCoy, Kumler United Methodist Church; Reverened Sam Winger, Serving Jesus Willingly Urban Ministries; Pastor Silas Johnson, Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor Charles Jackson, St. John’s AME Church and Pastor Roy Newman, President of the Alliance and Pastor at Fresh Visions Community
Musical selections will be provided by participating churches. A freewill offering will be taken and used exclusively to support the charitable, educational and social ministries of the Alliance.
