Setting up chairs
By 6:45 p.m. they were setting up extra chairs for the third worship service in the Lenten Series. On March 11, the Windfall Emanuel United Church of Christ was filled to overflowing.

The congregation also participated in a hymn sing.
Songs for the evening included “10,000 Angels,” “I’ll Be Singing with the Saints,” “Feel the Nails,” “He Touched Me,” “For Those Tears I Cried,” “Jesus Listens,” “Can I Pray For You?” “The Blood Covered All,” “Oh, What a Savior,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” “Wonderful Grace of Jesus,” “If That Isn’t Love” and “How Great Thou Art.”
