Good Friday Service
The choirs of First Baptist Church Silver Spring and Montgomery Hills will once again combine to present a Lenten worship cantata on Good Friday. "Come to the Cross and Remember" by Pepper Choplin is filled with images of Christ's sacrificial love for us: the palms, the cup and bread, the nails, the crown of thorns, and more. These images form the centerpiece of this thoughtful worship experience. During interludes, each of the images is brought forward to create a very moving tableau. Come and hear these beautiful choirs and remember the sacrifice of our Lord. April 1 10:45 AM

"Dig In"--Deeper Bible Experiences for Kids
Children in grades K-5 meet during the Sunday worship hour for their own special Bible study and worship time. Led by a team of dedicated children’s leaders, the group will sing, have crafts and drama, see videos, study the Bible and learn why it matters. “Dig In” is a product of Group, Inc., which designs our summer VBS material, so you know it will be unique and exciting!
Children go to the Sanctuary first and then the leaders will take them downstairs for their own experience. We look forward to an exciting Bible study and worship time with the children!
