Pikeside UMC Announces 2018 Holy Week Schedule

Pikeside UMC invites our community to celebrate Holy Week & Easter Sunday with us. 

Beginning on Palm Sunday – March 25, we will hold two special worship services (8:30 and 10:35 a.m.) with uplifting music from our Adult Sanctuary Choir and selected arrangements by pianist John Manor.  Then, our community is invited to join us each weekday during Holy Week (M-F), for our 8:00 a.m. morning prayer service.  Each morning, we will pause to reflect on the events of Holy Week, remind ourselves of His infinite mercy for us, grow closer to Him in love and to spiritually prepare our hearts for the sadness and joy of Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection. 

On Holy Thursday – March 28, Pikeside commemorates the Last Supper with a Communion Worship Service at 7:00 p.m. 

On Holy Saturday – March 30, at 8:00 a.m., Pikeside begins the day with somber reflection and prayer as we contemplate the world of darkness that would exist without the hope of Christ’s resurrection. Then at 10:00 a.m., Pikeside’s Christian Education Department will host a Community Easter Egg Hunt and Pizza Party beginning at 10:00 a.m. 

Finally, on Easter Sunday - April 01, our community is invited to our Easter Sunrise Service with Communion at 6:30 a.m., followed by a community Easter breakfast in our fellowship Hall. Then join us for Sunday School at 9:25 a.m. and our Easter celebration will conclude with a special Worship Service with Communion, Cantata and Kid’s Program.  Pikeside UMC is located at 25 Paynes Ford Road, Martinsburg WV and our facilities are handicapped accessible.
