Good afternoon, I’m Pastor Jared from Long Lake Friends Church in Traverse City, Michigan (TCMI). I want to take a moment to invite you to a brief Good Friday service online. I’ll just set this up a little bit.
I had been wanting to do something. Yet I did not have an idea that I felt like was coming across as the Lord’s leading, until not too long ago. I finally decided to contact some of my Pastor friends. I asked them if they would be willing to read one of the last 7 words of Christ from the Cross. Then they could share what that means to them, anything the Lord lays on their heart. It could be a brief 2-3 minute sermon or something along the lines of a personal story, whatever the Scripture means to them.
I chose some Pastors here in the area that know of Long Lake and have known me for years. I also chose other Pastors who have an interest in what we’re doing here, and who know you from Long Lake. This is a unique opportunity to hear some ministers speak into your lives.
So sit back, enjoy, and let’s take a little bit of time today to remember what Christ did for us on the Cross.
God Bless You,
Pastor Jared Ingle
