Tenebrae service on Good Friday


Willcox United Methodist Church is hosting a Good Friday Tenebrae service, a service of darkness at 7 p.m. March 29 in the Sanctuary.

This very special service will be presented by the Willcox UMC Choir and begins with all the lights and candles lit then, darkness begins to replace the light with the events that took place the day Jesus was crucified. The Choir sings a very moving cantata that concludes with darkness and silence.  Please come and be our guest for this moving presentation.  If you have questions please call the church office at 384-3482.


The Last Supper at Methodist Church 


Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, ‘The Last Supper,’ comes to life Thursday, March 28  at Willcox United Methodist Church at 7 p.m. 

As Jesus tells His disciples, “One of you will betray me,” each disciple asks himself, “Is it I?” in a moving soliloquy in this dramatic presentation during Holy Week.

For the second year, Willcox United Methodist Church is presenting the moving drama, the Living Last Supper, based on a script by Ernest K. Emurian. Many in our Willcox area community will make this presentation a yearly tradition to start off their Easter Season.

The presentation is on Thursday evening, March 28, at 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Willcox United Methodist Church located at 124 S. Curtis Ave. Reservations are not required.

Parents are encouraged to bring older children to the drama. There is no charge for the performance. The presentation takes place in the Upper Room; the set is based on da Vinci’s famous painting of The Last Supper.

Emurian said of his script: “I studied da Vinci and his inspiring picture and then proceeded to write the soliloquies for the Twelve Apostles as they might have expressed themselves immediately after hearing the Master say, ‘One of you will betray me,’ whereupon each man had cried out, ‘Lord, is it I?’ This was the moment Leonardo said he wished to capture in his picture.”

Pastor Bob Cutlipp, will direct the 13 men portraying Jesus and His 12 disciples as they take the audience back in time to the night before Jesus’ crucifixion when He shared the “last supper” with them. Participating in the play are David Collins as Jesus and Bob Dahlstrom, Bob Coder, Dave Bonner, Steve Anderson, Tanner Hogue, Toby Collins, Joe Aiman, Clare Owen, Jon Smith, Frank Johnson, Howard Bethel and Bob Cutlipp as His disciples. Don Sobey is narrating and music will be provided by a women’s ensemble directed by Sylvia Davis.
