March 25, 2002|BY MARLO BARNHART

In an effort to attract people who work, live and shop in the downtown Hagerstown area, the Washington County Council of Churches is again sponsoring a series of noontime Holy Week services at two Methodist churches.

"These services have been a long-standing tradition in our community for many years and are attended by members of local congregations, service clubs and others," said the Rev. Gregory Shook of the Ecumenical Affairs Committee of the council.

- The Rev. Cherie Baker, chaplain/director of religious services for Washington County Hospital, will share daily messages at John Wesley United Methodist Church, 129 N. Potomac St., today through Thursday.

The theme is "Holy Week: The Movie" and centers around the gospel writings of John.

The four services end each day at 12:35 p.m. A luncheon is served for $3.75. Proceeds go toward United Methodist Women mission projects.

- The community Good Friday service, also sponsored by the council, will begin at noon and continue through 3 p.m. at Otterbein United Methodist Church, corner of Franklin and Locust streets.

Guest clergy and laity from the community will be speaking throughout the afternoon on "The Seven Last Words." There will also be hymns, litanies and music.
