Advance plans first Cross Walk; more church events

Published 2:14 pm Thursday, March 19, 2015

The first Advance Community Cross Walk will be held on Good Friday, April 3, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

It will begin at Shady Grove Elementary School, walk past the old fire station to Underpass Road, turn right and walk to NC 801, turn right and walk to Advance Methodist (one mile).

There will have a van at the rear of the walkers for those who cannot walk the whole way. This is a community event, so invite everyone, all denominations, non-church-goers, children … anybody.

The walk begins with a reading of the events of Jesus’ arrest and trial; then walk in silence; and conclude with the reading of Jesus’ crucifixion and time for participants to share any thoughts or reflections.   

“This is a powerful way to reflect on what Christ has done for us,” said Angela Burton, Advance United Methodist secretary.
