Easter Worship Service Schedule

I hope this bright and windy day finds you enjoying the beginning of Holy Week in Winterset, and finalizing plans for Easter Sunday. I am getting my grocery list together for my typical contribution to the family meal at Mom and Dad's: green bean casserole made from the recipe right off the can of french fried onions. I know, so easy it's like cheating! Therefore, I may also attempt deviled eggs. How hard can it be?

But before dinner, there's church! If you are interested in finding a church to visit on Easter, or wondering what time your church's services are, I have a list for you here. Believe me, our local churches would absolutely love to have you visit on Easter or any Sunday! If you have questions for them, the phone numbers and website information for all of the following churches can be found at this link. Please note that the service times listed here are specifically for Easter and might be different on regular Sundays.
