First United Methodist Church Woodbury will offer a special Good Friday noon worship and lunch on Friday, April 3 beginning at 12:05.

Good Friday, also known as "Holy Friday" is the Friday immediately preceding Easter. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified.
Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, in which Christ's death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, a message centered on Chris suffering for our sakes, and sometimes will include the observance of the Lord's Supper. Whether or not Christians choose to "celebrate" Good Friday, the events of that day are remembered because the death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Good Friday noon service at First United Methodist Church.
