Good Friday, April 15 – The churches of Dryden and the surrounding area will carry a cross through the village on our Good Friday “Cross Walk.”  As we read the scriptures depicting the events leading to Calvary, we will offer a silent but public witness to the community of the salvation Christ brings.  Participants are welcome to join in the reading of scripture, or to shoulder the cross at any segment.  The event takes place entirely outdoors.  Gather in the village green at noon; our walk begins and ends in front of the Dryden United Methodist Church.  All are welcome. 

Easter Celebration for the whole family at Asbury Church, Lansing Campus on Wednesday, April 13th, and at the Dryden Campus on Tuesday, April 12th, from 7-8pm. See bulletin board for registration details.
