Ministerial Association gathers for holy week

Members of the Randolph County Ministerial Association have gathered at noon each day during holy week to share a 30-minute sermon and worship meal.

This year, the gatherings have taken place at the First United Methodist Church in Elkins.

The Rev. Jamie Estep, president of the Randolph County Ministerial Association, said the event is a week they choose to spend time together.

“This week is about coming together to celebrate what we are about,” Estep said. “We hear the word and share a meal. It is open to everybody, not just ministers.”

Thursday’s program included a sermon by the Rev. Fred Bird and music by Deborah Super.
