Albany - - Downtown Albany churches continue a tradition this week leading up to Easter. 

Each day during Holy Week, that's the week before Easter, several downtown churches gather to worship together.

Each year, the location of the services rotates between the different churches. This year, Holy Week services are being held at First Baptist Church of Albany.

Pastors say it's a good way to fellowship together.  

"As different denominations, we have different thoughts about this and different ideas about this, but this is one week in which we put aside all the things we disagree upon and really look at the things that bring us together and bind us together and that's the cross of Jesus," says Pastor Butch Knight.

First Baptist Church offers lunch before and after the 30 minute worship services. The services begin at 12:15 p.m.

The public is invited to attend Thursday and Friday.
