Albany- Services are being held throughout the week at Morningside United Methodist Church.

Each day a pastor from a different United Methodist congregation will bring the message. Pastors say it's a way to remind members of the reason for the season and the events leading up to Easter Sunday.

"Easter is much more celebratory, there's much more joy associated with Easter and we tend to neglect the cross because there's suffering. Sort of like the movie that came out The Passion, people don't necessarily want to embrace the suffering, but we Christians find that that suffering can be redemptive and that's why we celebrate Holy week,"

Each service will begin at noon and last for half an hour. The church will also serve lunch following the service.
