Music played, stories were told and verses were read as those gathered at Forum Christian Church prepared for one of the holiest days in all of Christendom — Easter. Parishioners of the church gathered to celebrate Good Friday. The last time members of the church were able to gather for Good Friday was 2019 — last year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the church to go virtual for a time. The pandemic wasn't completely absent, masks were worn by all and communion was given out in personal, sealed cups similar to creamer cups at diners.
