The Perkinsville Community Church (United Church of Christ) welcomes members of the community to any of the three events it will be holding in observance of Holy Week.
On Wednesday, April 20, at 6:30 p.m., the regular monthly film will be "Jesus Christ Superstar," Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's ground-breaking "rock opera" which changed the face of musical theater when it debuted on Broadway in 1971. Telling the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus, "Superstar" dramatizes Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the unrest caused by his preaching and popularity, his betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion. This version was shown as part of the PBS Great Performances series in 2001 and is a film adaptation of the then-recent Broadway revival.
On Good Friday (April 22) from noon to 3 p.m., the Church will be open for quiet meditation and prayer.
The Easter Sunday service (April 24) will be at 10 a.m.
