LOGAN, W.Va. — Holy Week starts today, Palm Sunday, and the Logan Ministerial Association (LMA) will host Easter services throughout the week at the Logan High School’s Little Theater.
On Sunday night, March 20, at 6 p.m. various choir members of the local churches gather together in an ecumenical choir singing praise and songs to Christ. The choir will be coordinated by the music director from the Mill Creek Church of God, Chrystal Wall. The pastor from Mill Creek COG, J.D. Wall will deliver the message.
On Wednesday night, March 23, at 7 p.m. the youth from West Logan Church of God will perform some dramas and sing several inspirational songs. A message from Lt. Chansey Johnson of the Salvation Army will be delivered for all ages.
On Thursday night, March 24, at 7 p.m. the live performance of the Living Last Supper, where the disciples tell their stories about their walk with Jesus Christ, will begin. Local ministers and laity of various churches will perform as the disciples. During the presentation, Holy Communion will be celebrated with all.
Each evening a love offering will be received that will go for the purchase of specialty Bibles for local First Responders — Logan firefighters, City Police, Logan EMS and Paramedics and surrounding community responders based on funding.
The LMA, comprised of various churches in the Logan and surrounding area, believe “We are One in Christ” and church denominational beliefs should not separate or divide them as they share the Good News to anyone that will listen.
“We come together to serve the Lord,” Rev. Thomas Beckette, pastor of Nighbert Memorial United Methodist Church, said. “Come and be a part of the community gathering together to be ‘United in Christ’”.
