Annual Cross Walk to be held Friday

A Fulton community Good Friday Cross Walk will be held Friday, April 6 starting at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Parish, 309 Buffalo St., Fulton.

This annual event is sponsored by the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches.

Walkers will take turns carrying a large wooden cross in the downtown section of the City of Fulton. A total of ten stations of the cross will be observed.

Each station will include scripture, prayer and the singing of a hymn.

The Cross Walk will conclude about noon at its final destination, First United Church of Fulton, 33 South Third St..  Everyone who has taken part in the Walk and has provided assistance to walkers will be welcomed to a Soup and Bread Luncheon provided by the Board of Deacons of First United Church.   There is no cost for the luncheon.

The Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches is comprised of those member congregations who support ecumenical programs that include the annual Michaud Memorial Service, the Community Thanksgiving Worship service, and the very successful annual CROP WALK which raises funds for world hunger, and for local food pantries.

Those seeking further information about the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches and the Good Friday Cross Walk, may contact the Council of Churches President, Rev. David Nethercott at 592-2707 or prairieborn@aol.com.
