Corinth’s First United Methodist Church is inviting the community to join them in a time of reflection each day during Holy Week.

The church will host a daily program including scripture readings, prayer and a time of silent reflection this coming Monday through Friday at 12:15 p.m. each day in the historic Fillmore Street Chapel. Each day’s program will be brief to allow those attending to participate and still get lunch on their lunch hours.

Holy Week marks the period leading up to Easter, commemorating the final days of Jesus moving through the crucifixion to the resurrection on Easter.

Pastor John Garrott said the week is an important time of reflection for all Christians on the powerful, world changing events of this week.

Garrott said this year it feels even more deeply significant as the whole world begins to come out of the darkness of the pandemic.

“Since we are beginning to emerge from a year of COVID-19, a year of suffering and death, the chance to come together to reflect on Christ’s suffering death and resurrection will be a redemptive thing for us all,” he said.

Garrott said the church is thankful to be able to once again welcome the community in to join them in the daily commemorations.

“We’re excited about being able to offer a Holy Week experience for the community in this historic chapel,” he said.
