Holy Week Services
The week before Easter is known as “Holy Week”. During this week, the congregation uses a manual entitled “The Readings of Holy Week”. Services are held at Ardmore each evening during Holy Week (Sunday - Thursday) at 7:00pm and Friday at 2:15pm and 7:00pm. The readings are biblical references from the New Testament following the activities of Jesus Christ during each day of the week telling of his sufferings, death, resurrection, and ascension. The Friday evening service is A Tennebrae Service.

Donations were accepted with all proceeds being divided equally between a local Title 1 Elementary School and The Moravian Secondary School in Ngiehu, Sierra Leone, Africa which educates about 200 students per year.“Drive Thru Ashes” - Ash Wednesday February 14thAsh Wednesday is the start of the holy season of Lent, a time for reflection and repentance in preparation for the celebration of Easter.A “drive thru service” was developed to help people who may be sick, who have mobility issues, people on their way to work or families on their way to school.

A total of 44 coats were collected and transported to A Cleaner World where the items were cleaned, repaired and turned over to the Salvation Army for distribution.
