Cathedral of Praise SOTC

School of the Cross

Holy Week is here once again — the time of the year when we Christians take a break off our daily grind to remember the ultimate sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ to save us from our sins.

For more than a decade, Cathedral of Praise has been holding “School of the Cross” on Good Friday, when Pastor David Sumrall teaches in detail what exactly happened thousands of years ago in Israel and in the heavenly realm during the first Holy Week. Now, COP is once again inviting everyone to learn about the occurrences leading to the hour when Jesus gave up His life, starting from His and the apostles’ triumphant entry to Jerusalem, the last supper, the arrest of Jesus, until His death and eventual resurrection. Be blessed as you learn what Jesus did for all humanity motivated by His deep and everlasting love for all of us.

Aside from listening to Pastor’s teaching, we can also look forward to seeing invaluable artifacts straight from Israel. Every year during the Israel tour, Pastor Sumrall acquires and brings home a few things that were used during Bible times that were dug up by archeologists.

These artifacts are set up for display on the platform of the main auditorium, transforming it into a mini-museum. For this year, Pastor Sumrall has excitedly shared that he brought home an artifact that has the seal from King Hezekiah’s time, and yes, it’s for everyone to see, appreciate and even take pictures of during School of the Cross.
