First United Methodist Church invites the community to a special Good Friday service of music and readings at 7 p.m. April 18 in the church’s main sanctuary.

Music that evening will be provided by the Chancel Choir under the direction of Eric Johnson, as well as special guest soloists, a string quartet, and piano and organ accompaniment. Featured musical selections will include Mozart’s “Lacrymosa,” Faure’s “Pie Jesus,” Martin’s “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” and Pergolesi’s “Stabat Mater.” In addition, several selections from Handel’s “Messiah” will be performed. The congregation will be invited to join in the singing of several well-known seasonal hymns.

The remainder of the service will be readings from the Gospel of John as the story of Good Friday is recorded and remembered.
