Providence Palm Sunday service features unusual art presentation

Providence begins Holy Week with a special day on Palm Sunday when children proceed up the aisle with palms at all three services.

At the 9 and 11:11 a.m. Contemporary Services, Todd Little, art teacher at Starr’s Mill High School, will begin worship painting during the opening music set.

Little, who shares his art at private and church functions, paints with his hands rather than brushes and takes about 30 minutes to complete artwork in the theme of the message and the music.

The traditional worship service at 10 a.m. includes choir, liturgy and piano. Read More»
