I'm not really sure why more people seem to come looking for creative ideas for Good Friday more than any other day. Maybe it is because it is outside of the usual Sunday service times so people are willing to try something different. I'm not sure the reason, but I do like to make things as easy as possible for people who end up here looking for Good Friday ideas. So I decided to do what I have done the past couple of years and pull a list of some of the Good Friday ideas that I have published here over the years. Hope it helps.

Good Friday Service Ideas: Unashamed Love

Good Friday Ideas, Object Lessons, Worship ideas
The cross is so many things. It is pain and healing. It is defeat and victory. It is death and life. But one of the things that the cross is to me is a declaration--an unashamed declaration--of God's love for us. The birth of Jesus was a small affair, just a few shepherds and a wise man or three, but His death was public. It was out in the open. It wasn't hidden away in some corner. It was God saying to the whole world. "You want to know how much I love you? You want to know how far I will go to make sure you know I care? Well check this out! Here is my love." God didn't whisper his love to us like a guy on the…
