Good Friday Together
Congregations from all around the area set aside denominations, associations, and differing locations in order to join together, celebrate and remember the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross over two thousand years ago. This unprecedented gathering of so many churches on a Good Friday was the first in the region and took place at the First Niagara Center in downtown Buffalo.
Joining us were guest speakers from local WNY churches and the Christian communityincluding Darius Pridgen (True Bethel Baptist Church), Jill Kelly (Hunters Hope), Jerry Gillis (The Chapel), Pat Jones (Eastern Hills Wesleyan Church), Marty Macdonald (City Church, Batavia), Roderick Hennings (Zion Dominion Global Ministries), and Angel Gautier (Prince of Peace Church).
An offering was taken as well, with every dollar being given directly toward meeting needs in the city of Buffalo, specifically in the areas of education, sustainable housing, healthcare, and teen mentoring.
