Brownstown Area Ministerial Association announces Easter plans

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

Beginning April 3, there will be a daily Cross Walk through the community from noon each day until the destination of that day is completed. A short devotion and prayer will mark the conclusion at each site. The whole event each day takes around 45 minutes to an hour.

The walk will begin that day at the Jackson County Courthouse steps and proceed to Brownstown Church of the Nazarene on West Commerce Street.

On April 4, the walk will begin at the Nazarene church and proceed to the corner of Elm and Walnut streets to pray over the schools.

On April 5, they will begin at the corner of Elm and Walnut streets and walk to Hoosier Christian Village on South Sugar Street, where they will pray for the elderly and those who care for them.

On April 6, the final day of the walk will begin at Hoosier Christian Village and conclude in front of the pavilion at Heritage Park on the north side of the courthouse.

On April 7, the community is invited to a Good Friday worship service at 6 p.m. at Heritage Park. It will be an outside event, and the community is invited to bring lawn chairs. In the event of rain, it will be held with everyone on the pavilion platform.

The Brownstown Area Ministerial Association is made up of all of the ministers of the local churches of Jackson County. Their primary function is that of maintaining a working relationship with all of the churches in the community. The secondary emphasis of the group is that of maintaining the community food pantry at the Nazarene church.

The group will collect an offering at the Good Friday service and at 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 do so by making a check payable to BAMA and sending it to Brownstown Church of the Nazarene, 616 W. Commerce St., Brownstown, IN 47220.

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