Holy week begins on Monday, March 21st. This will also mark the beginning of a week-long (Monday-Friday) series of services to celebrate the season. This is a joint effort by the Pickens County Ministerial Association (PCMA) and Jasper United Methodist Church (JUMC) The services will be held at the JUMC.
The services will begin at Noon each day and a lunch will be served. There is no charge for the lunch, but an offering will be taken up. The funds raised will go to the ongoing ministries of the JUMC and the Pickens Ministerial Association.
Five different pastors will bring a short message in the series of services. The participating pastors are: Don Bankhead, Jasper Seventh Day Adventist Church; David Sieg, King of Kings Lutheran Church; Mike Wieszchowski, Westminster Chapel; Mark Parado, Living Word; Greg Meadows, Jasper United Methodist Church.
The pastors and churches that are part of the PCMA extend an invitation to everyone in the community to come and join us for these services. It is something to celebrate. The Lord has Risen!
