With Holy Week upon us and Lent coming to a close, Denver area United Methodist Churches are offering a variety of services.
There are four main days to recognize during Holy Week: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and of course Easter. This past Sunday was Palm Sunday, with many churches celebrating the day with processions of children with palm fronds either within the church or outside it. Some churches provided special music programs for the day. In the upcoming week, churches turn to the more sober aspects of Holy Week with Maundy Thursday and Good Friday before the joyful celebration of Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday.
