Five Presbyterian church congregations in Taylor, Marion, Nelson and Washington counties will host a worship service on Maundy Thursday, April 5.
The service of Holy Communion and Tenebrae, an ancient liturgy meaning A Service of Shadows, will be at 7:30 p.m. at Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Church, five miles north of Springfield, off of Route 555, on Pleasant Grove Loop.
Participating in the service will be elders and pastors from Bethel First Presbyterian Church in Campbellsville, Bardstown Presbyterian Church in Bardstown, United Presbyterian Church in Lebanon and Springfield Presbyterian and Pleasant Grove Presbyterian churches in Springfield.
The Presbyterian Church has had a presence in Central Kentucky since the late 1700s, and today is the only denomination of the Reformed tradition in the area.

The Campbellsville church was established in 1799, Bardstown in 1786, Big Spring in Bloomfield in 1794, Lebanon in 1789, Pleasant Grove in 1833, South Fork Presbyterian in 1931 and Springfield in 1788.
