The congregation at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church will be holding a Good Friday service at 6 p.m. March 29.
“We will gather to remember the terrible sacrifice that was required in order to secure our redemption,” said Pastor David Grey. “For those who lived through that day it was a day of fear, of great disappointment and of unspeakable horror. We today call that Friday, “good” only in hindsight, because we know what was accomplished on that day.”
The church will also hold an Easter Sunrise Service March 31 at 7 a.m.
