“A lot of people say you walk the labyrinth in order to ‘lose yourself.’ What if you end up finding yourself? Slow down. Settle down. See what happens.” 

— Mark Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

Simultaneous Evening Children’s Service

“Why Do We Call It Good?”

7:00 pm | Chapel | Mister Mark Burrows

In this very thoughtful Good Friday Children’s Service, we encourage families to experience together one the of the most important, yet challenging stories of our faith. Offering this story in child-appropriate ways that also honor the scriptures, this service presents through scripture and shadow theatre, the story of Jesus’ final day. Children will receive prayer cords, and families will sing and pray together in this powerful yet peaceful night in Leonard Memorial Chapel.
