Read-aloud features Bible’s book of Exodus

CUMBERLAND — The monthly community Bible read-aloud series continues at 9 a.m. March 25 at Heather Hills Baptist Church with the book of Exodus, which tells about Moses and the Hebrews leaving bondage in Egypt.

Readers covered one third of the book in January and the next third in February. The plan is to read the last third in March. The Bible read-alouds typically last an hour; it would take 2 hours, 51 minutes, to read the entire book of Exodus in one sitting.

Church leaders say anyone is welcome to come join in the reading, or simply listen. The church is located at 1421 N. German Church Road, Indianapolis.

Community Good Friday service set in Shirley

SHIRLEY — Community Ministerial Alliance, a group of Shirley-area churches, will have a community Good Friday service at 6 p.m. Friday at Shirley Church of the Nazarene, 310 South St.

Mike Jessup, pastor of Christ Fellowship Church, will be the speaker.

The Community Ministerial Alliance has been sponsoring a Good Friday service and a Thanksgiving service for about 20 years, first as a Shirley ministerial alliance but later under its current name.

The group typically rotates locations for these community services. Pastors from the churches involved take turns delivering the sermon. Other churches often offer some other part of the service, such as a song or a poem.

Participating churches are Christ Fellowship Church, Grant City Wesleyan Church, Shirley Friends Church, Shirley Church of the Nazarene, Shirley-Wilkinson Community United Methodist Church, Warrington Church of the Nazarene and Wilkinson Church of Christ. You do not have to attend one of those churches to go to the service.
