Coming Together To ‘Lift Jesus Higher’

Local worshipers from various churches in the Jamestown area will celebrate Holy Week with a Maundy Thursday service “One in Christ – A Holy Week Gathering to Celebrate Jesus” on Thursday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts in Jamestown. This convening of Christian believers will encompass the theme of “Lifting Jesus Higher” through various means of worship as participants are called to glorify God through unity in worship.

The One in Christ event is designed to be a demonstration of the unity of the church in this community through local church participation in music, drama, the spoken word given by dynamic speakers, and a video presentation showing area non-denominational Christian ministries that are serving our community. A praise dance will be presented by Audience of One Dance Ministry, members from several area churches will lead in worship through a multi-church praise band, and a community choir will present anthems of celebration. Communion will be observed during the service.

One in Christ is sponsored by the following churches: Busti Church of God, Bemus Point United Methodist, Calvary Baptist, Camp Street United Methodist, Clark’s Corners, Fellowship at the Cross, Fluvanna Community Church, Healing Word Ministries Church of God, Hillcrest Baptist, Jamestown Christian & Missionary Alliance, Kidder Memorial United Methodist, Lakewood Baptist, Levant Wesleyan, New Beginnings United Methodist, Park United Methodist, Peace Wesleyan, Praise Fellowship, and The Better Place Inc.

There is no cost to attend the One in Christ service, and a free-will offering will be taken to benefit the featured nine non-denominational ministries of the greater Jamestown areas, following the example of Christ to minister to the less-fortunate.

The Reg Lenna Center for the Arts is located at 116 E. Third St. in Jamestown. For more information on this event, contact Bishop Leecroft Clarke at 483-3687.
