This Good Friday, Urban Grace partnered with City Hill Church and The Exchange in a multi-church service.
One of the biggest days in the Jewish calendar was the Day of Atonement. Of this day it is written, ‘For on this day shall atonement be made for you to cleanse you. You shall be clean before the LORD from all your sins.’ (Leviticus 16:30).
One of the biggest calendar days for followers of Jesus is Good Friday, where we remember that we have been relieved of this burden through this, ‘once and for all’, sacrifice by Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10:12). This year, we wanted to make it a special day in the calendar of our local church bodies.
Our three church families want to invite you to join with us (even online) in the celebration of the sacrifice of Jesus and the unity of the local church. Since the word atonement (literally, At. One. Ment.) implies unity, we want to publicly take the opportunity to confess our sin of disunity in the local church in Calgary. Our hope is that as followers of Jesus, we are kickstarting a tradition that will become an important calendar moment to the Church of Jesus in our city.
