Lenten Services

Lenten services

The Lenten Luncheon series of Prayer Services followed by a simple lunch continues on Fridays during Lent at 12 noon.  On March 25, the service will be at the South Granville Congregational Church.  On April 1, it will be at Trinity Episcopal Church.  Granville Baptist Church will host the service and luncheon on April 8.  The host on April 15 will be Bethel Peniel. 

The Lenten Luncheons are an annual event, sponsored by the Mettowee Valley Ecumenical Council.  Everyone in the community is invited to attend the half-hour service and the soup and bread luncheon which follows.  Tom Scott generously provides clam chowder to supplement the other soups provided by each church.

St. Mary’s Church will host the annual, ecumenical, community Pot Luck Supper on Holy Thursday, April 21, at 5:00 pm, at the Knights of Columbus Hall.  Many churches will then offer an evening worship service.  The evening service sponsored by the Presbyterians, the Granville Methodists, and the Granville Baptists, will be at 7:00 pm at the Granville Methodist Church.

The Good Friday worship service, sponsored by the Mettowee Valley Ecumenical Council, will be at the Granville Baptist Church, 23 Quaker St., from 12-1 pm.  The 7 Last Words of Christ from the Cross will be expounded upon by various preachers from the community.

The Easter Son-Risen worship service, sponsored by the MVEC, will be in Veterans’ Park, at 6:30 am.
