Brownstown ministerial group announces Easter week plans

The Brownstown Area Ministerial Association recently announced plans for the week of Easter celebration.

Beginning Monday, a Cross Walk through the community will start at noon each day until the destination of that day is completed. A short devotion and prayer will mark the conclusion at each site. Each day’s walk usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

The walk will begin Monday at Brownstown Church of the Nazarene on Commerce Street and proceed to Brownstown United Methodist Church at Poplar and Walnut streets.

On Tuesday, the walk will begin at Brownstown United Methodist Church and proceed to Brownstown Presbyterian Church near the high school.

Wednesday will start at Brownstown Presbyterian Church and conclude at Brownstown Christian Church on West Spring Street, and on Thursday, the final day of the walk will begin at Brownstown Christian Church and end in front of the pavilion at Heritage Park on the north side of the Jackson County Courthouse.

On Good Friday, the community is invited to come together at 6 p.m. for a worship service at Heritage Park. It will be an outside event, so everyone is invited to bring a lawn chair and enjoy the time outside. In the event of rain, attendees will gather everyone under the roof of the pavilion.

The ministerial association is made up of all of the ministers of the local churches of Jackson County. Their primary function is maintaining a working relationship with all of the churches in the community. The secondary focus is maintaining the community food pantry located at Brownstown Church of the Nazarene.

The group collects an offering at the Good Friday service and during the community Thanksgiving service in November to help stock and maintain the grocery supply. If churches or individuals are interested in making monetary donations, they may make a check payable to the association and send it to Brownstown Church of the Nazarene .

Anyone from any of the churches is welcome to attend the Cross Walk or the community Good Friday service. It is requested that everyone maintains good health by use of masks and social distancing for each event.
