This year for Good Friday, Mountainview will be hosting the Littleton Church of Christ for a combined worship service. Both of our churches share a common heritage and tradition; we also share a common geographic as the Littleton church is located only about 10 minutes away from us.
Having been born and raised in the Churches of Christ, I’m very appreciative for my brothers and sisters who worship in that tradition. Over the last six and a half years, I’ve also been blessed to get know various staff members from the Littleton Church — people such as Colin Packer, the former senior minister, and current staff members such as Kent and Anne Marie Rogers and Jovan Barrington.
Singers and musicians from both churches will share the stage. Teens from both youth groups will do a reading of Isaiah 53. Finally, Jovan and myself will be co-teaching, essentially letting the audience listen in to our conversation about what the death of Jesus means.
I believe Jesus is honored when the different variations of his church work together. In essence, it’s an answer to his prayer for unity in John 17.
If you live in South Denver, we’d love to have you join us at 7 pm. Mountainview is located at 40 E. Highlands Ranch Parkway in Highlands Ranch.
Here’s a video Jovan and I put together.
