Five area churches have joined together to bring the message of the life, death and resurrection of Christ to as many people as possible next week, also known as Holy Week, which is held the week before Easter.
Each day at noon, the pastors of the five churches will swap places and bring the message to those in a congregation other than their own.
Monday, April 10, the service will be held at St. Maurice Catholic Church and the Rev. Jack Fitts of the First Baptist Church will bring the message.
Tuesday, April 11, the service will be held at First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Adrian Cook from St. Maurice Catholic Church bringing the message.
Wednesday, April 12, the service will be held at St. Stephens Episcopal Church with the Rev. John Mathieu bringing the message.
Thursday, April 13, the service will be held at First Baptist Church and the Rev. Dr. Ed Glaize will bring the message.
Friday, April 14, the service will be held at First Presbyterian Church with the Rev. Gary Baldwin of St. Stephens Episcopal Church bringing the message.
Accoring to Ron Headley, associate pastor at First Baptist Church, the services have been going on a long time.
