Community Good Friday Services, April 18 Print E-mail

The Pendleton County Community Good Friday Church Service, sponsored by the Pendleton County Cooperative of Churches, will be held at the Falmouth Baptist Church on Friday, April 18. The service will begin at 1 p.m., but there will be special music prior to the service presented by the wonderfully talented people from several local churches and special guests that will also be part of the service. So come early!

Many of the county's ministers will be conducting the service representing their individual churches as well as the Cooperative of Churches.

Reverend Conrad Hefner of Trinity Southern Baptist Church, will be bringing the message. The youth from Pendleton County High School will also be performing during
the service again this year.

Everyone is invited to attend. Please bring a friend or a relative and sing, praise, and honor our greatest blessed friend and slain Savior, Jesus Christ, on April 18. Don't forget to come early to hear the pre-service concert.

Also, the long, cold winter has been hard on the Cooperative food pantry. If you would like to help out by donating some non-perishable food items, there will be boxes available at the church to collect them.
