ALBANY, GA (WALB) - This is holy week, when Christians celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Downtown Albany churches have joined together since 1984 to break down barriers, and bring a message of hope to the community.

This years theme is the Lord's Prayer, that is broken down into five parts.

Pastor Don Adams with the First United Methodist Church says it's a treat to hear the music and messages from a different church every day.

He says three of the downtown churches are historically black and three are historically white. And every congregation brings its own style to each sermon.

He says the most important thing is the message celebrating the differences together with what christians have in common.

"We live in a world where unfortunately religion seems to divide a lot and it seems we focus on the things we don't agree on and it can create violence and it's heartbreaking," said Pastor Don Adams, Sr.

Holy Week sermons will be each afternoon at 12:15 at the First United Methodist Church, downtown Albany. You can have a meal before or after for 6.00. For more information you can call the church at 432-7407.
