The Bowling Green Ministerial Association has set its plans for the Good Friday Community Service called "A Good Friday Pilgrimage" on April 18. It will feature four distinct worship experiences joined by processionals between the churches following the cross.
Everyone is  invited to come to any of the sections or all of them.  This will enable those churches who have their own worship that day to also participate in at least one or two sections of the community event and give working persons the choice of daytime or evening.
Persons who are unable to walk the distances are welcome to come to attend any or all of the services without walking in the processions. The processionals will take place rain or shine, so participants may want to bring an umbrella, depending on what the weather holds.
The tentative schedule of the Bowling Green event follows. Information on other Good Friday services are then listed.
Good Friday Pilgrimage
1.  The Pilgrimage will begin at noon at Trinity United Methodist Church, 200 N. Summit St., where the congregations will join in the Proclamation of the Passion Story and The Ten Reproaches: Christ's Lament Against His Faithless Church.
2.  At around 12:45 p.m., those who are able, will walk to First Presbyterian Church, 126 S. Church St., following the cross.
3.  At 1 p.m. attendees will remember the Seven Last Words of Christ. The Presbyterian church will host as seven churches will present short pieces of scripture, prayer and music.
4.  At 1:45 p.m., the procession will proceed to St. Aloysius Catholic Church, 150 S. Enterprise.
5.  At 2 p.m. participants will observe the Stations of the Cross at St. Aloysius. The service will be "The Folly of God" by Seiger Koder, a contemporary art meditation on the traditional stations.
