Good Friday Together

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.

Did You Make A Decision?

You’ve made a decision to follow Jesus – and we couldn’t be happier. The Bible says, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9-10). Salvation is a free gift from God. This is the single most important choice that you will make in your life, because it affects much more than just the here and now. This is actually a decision with eternal implications. Whether you realize it or not, God has been leading you to this point in your life. He knows your story and he loves you unconditionally.

But you might be asking, “Where do I go from here? What do I do now?” God’s design for you was not for you to do this on your own, and so he created a family that we call, “The Church.” You now have brothers and sisters who are cheering you on, because they realize how incredible life with Jesus really is. The best thing you can do now is get connected to a local church where the same message you responded to is preached every Sunday. You need to be surrounded by people who are going to point you in the right direction and lovingly walk with you as you follow Jesus together.

If you don’t know of a church where you can put down some roots, then our advice is twofold. First, if you came to Good Friday Together because someone personally invited you, then consider joining them at their local church. Second, if that’s not the case for you, then please click the Connect To A Church button below to fill out a form, and someone will send you a list of churches in your area.
