This is Good Friday, the day Christian's mark the crucifixion of Jesus leading up to Easter.

The Sanctuary at St. Paul's Episcopal Church was almost full at noon for the Good Friday service.

Downtown Albany Churches held joint services each day this week.

Ministers say faith and hope are still important in South Georgian's lives.

Albany First Presbyterian Church Reverend Garrett Andrew said "The economy is down, joblessness and things. Hope seems to be disappearing. But in the midst of all that we still have a God on high who goes down low in the midst of our loneliness to let us know we are not alone."

There will be a community Easter sunrise service Sunday morning at 7 at Ray Charles Plaza in downtown Albany.
