Peter's Episcopal Church offers Holy Week and Easter services

Until Holy Week 2018 these very Holy Oils will be used by the parishes of our diocese for the celebration of the Sacraments. "This is the beginning of the Christian holy week, which culminates on next Sunday with Easter".

Holy Week begins April 9 with Palm Sunday. The Rev. Sam Marcengill, pastor of Lake City United Methodist Church, said his church will pass out palm branches on Palm Sunday. Communion will be served at both services. Solemn candlelight service commemorates the Last Supper and includes communion.

"Last year we did a hand washing, but I don't think we'll do that this year", he said. People are now given small crosses, made of palms, to take home with them. "My wife and I read it together so it's not the same voice the whole time, and that works pretty well". Our Baileys Harbor churches have a number of services scheduled.

"We celebrate the hope of our life in Christ and what He has done for us on the cross". Palm Sunday was a procession of a king of another kind.

The church is also hosting a reflective, multicultural Good Friday service (appropriate for children in middle school and older) on April 14 at 7 pm, and Easter Sunday services at 9:30 and 11:15 am. This service is available each week for those who seek a quiet place away from life's busy pace for meditation and prayer.

A Greek team has just completed a historic renovation of the Edicule, the shrine that tradition says houses the cave where Jesus was entombed and resurrected. "We started a new service on Wednesday evening called Pioneer Kids Club, and we've been drawing a lot of kids from the community through that".

Indore: Processions were taken out and prayers were held at nearly all the churches in the city to usher in the Holy Week of the Lenten season on Sunday. May HOLY WEEK 2017 help us to grow in holiness and to know Him, love Him and follow Him. Easter celebration will be Sunday, Apr. 16; 6:30 a.m. Sunrise Service on CMU Quad, C Bench area; FREE Easter Breakfast Buffet, 7:30 - 9:30 Fellowship Hall; Easter Celebration, 10:30 Sanctuary.

Henderson Memorial Baptist Church welcomes the community to join in commemorating the Holy Week's spiritual events in a series of special services throughout the week. Many churches have sunrise services, held early to coincide with the discovery by the women who found the tomb empty when they visited early on that Sunday to anoint Jesus' body.
