Williams Lake Easter services set

Christians will be celebrating Easter this weekend in a variety of ways.

Local churches will hold special services and there are several community events planned.

The Williams Lake Pastors Fellowship is sponsoring an Interdenominational Good Friday Service at Cariboo Bethel Church, starting at 10 a.m. today, April 18.

“On behalf of all the local pastors, we are inviting our entire community Christian and non-Christian to come to Cariboo Bethel Church and enjoy a time of worship and pastoral reflections on the theme, Hope From The Cross,” says, Pastor Cameron Johnston, of the Cariboo Central Seventh-day Adventist Church and a member of the pastor’s fellowship.

“These times of interdenominational gatherings for joint worship and sharing are highlights here in Williams Lake,” Johnston continues.

“I know that all who take the time and come to this year’s Good Friday service will also be refreshed and blessed.”

The service is free with an offering to be taken to assist The Great Room, a local ministry that helps women who need encouragement and support.

Another community offering will be the screening of the film Tracing the Footsteps of Jesus, the Easter story filmed on location in Jerusalem.

The film will be shown at the Cariboo Central Seventh Day Adventist Church at 26 Woodland Drive tonight, April 18 at 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m. and again at 6 p.m.

On Sunday, April 20 a Cowboy Church service will be held at the Cariboo Memorial Complex starting at 9 a.m.

There will be music by the Vike-Noble Band with a message from Cariboo Christian Outreach Pastor John Noble.

Free 30-day devotional books by Comedian Phil Calloway will be provided.
