Special Easter services are planned


For Easter, when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ after he was nailed to a cross and left to die, many local churches are holding services this Sunday at special times, and a few will move to special locations to accommodate larger than normal crowds. Guest speakers are planned in some instances, as well.

While churches generally welcome people other than their own members through their doors, a few Sunday services that are especially intended as an invitation to the entire community include:

• 7 a.m. sunrise service at the amphitheater at Mammoth Cave National Park. The service will be moved indoors in the event of rain. The nondenominational service is sponsored by Mammoth Cave Hotel. Various communities in the area take turns with the organizing for each year, and Horse Cave churches are taking care of it this year.

• 10 a.m. service at Barren County High School gymnasium with Coral Hill Baptist Church. Doors open at 9 a.m.

• 10 a.m. service at Glasgow High School gymnasium with Calvary Baptist Church, with the theme “All Things New.” Child care is available.

• 10 a.m. “Thorns,” an Easter Experience, at the Plaza Theater in downtown Glasgow with Glenview Christian Church. The program is open to the public and designed to minister to those who are battling life’s thorns, feeling the pain of such things as shame, denial or maybe even religion. Special music, sketches and a special Easter message will be presented. Child care will be provided for infants and toddlers.
