Fellowship Baptist Church schedules `Living Last Supper' starting Sunday

Beginning Sunday, Fellowship Baptist Church of Ferndale will present its fourth annual "Living Last Supper."

In four performances directed by Fellowship's pastor, the Rev. Michael W. Hubers, congregation members will portray Jesus and his 12 disciples at the Last Supper, the crucifixion and the resurrection.

"Each disciple comes to life one at a time and recalls his personal encounter with Jesus," Hubers said. "The disciples come down from the table and serve communion to the congregation."

The staging of the Last Supper segment is based on the painting of the event by Leonardo DaVinci, he said.

Hubers said he got the idea for a "Living Last Supper" four years ago while attending a similar performance at a church in Pennsylvania. Fellowship Baptist used the same production, and Hubers wrote additional dialogue and added music.

The free performances will take place at 7 p.m. Sunday, Thursday, April 21 and April 22. Baby-sitting will be provided.

The church is at 1015 Sundown Road. Information: 410-761-0217 or 410-760-7755.

Ministry Group planning service for Good Friday

Severna Park Area Ministry Group will hold its annual Ecumenical Good Friday Service from noon to 3 p.m. April 21 at Our Shepherd Lutheran Church, 400 Benfield Road in Severna Park.

Based on the "Seven Words of Jesus from the Cross," the service will include a series of meditations and musical presentations from churches and organizations.

Speakers will include pastoral representatives of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, Pasadena and Severna Park United Methodist churches, Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church, and Our Shepherd, as well as Pastoral Counseling Services of Maryland.

"Attendance has continued to grow over the years," said the Rev. Frederick Eichner of Our Shepherd. "Last year there were between 250 and 300 who came to the service."

Worshipers are invited to come for the entire service or part of it. Child care will be available from 12: 30 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Information: 410-647-1658.

Diversity forum concludes with video `Free Indeed'

Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis will present the video "Free Indeed" at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the final program of its second annual series of videos and discussions on race and diversity in America.

Produced by the Mennonite Central Committee, "Free Indeed" tells the story of four middle-class whites who examine their attitudes about racism and the privileges that come with being white.

The free presentation will take place in the church sanctuary. Information: 410-266-8044.
