Harmon to lead Wednesday Holy Week service

Denise Harmon, a self-described “wife, mother, mentor, public speaker, vessel for heart change, servant-leader and a beloved daughter of God,” will be the featured lay speaker at Wednesday’s Holy Week service, which will begin at 7 a.m. in the Cleburne Conference Center.

Community Holy Week services, sponsored by Cleburne Christian Business Club, will continue each morning through Friday. 

Harmon, who is the membership director of The Fort Worth Club, is an active member of Cleburne Bible Church. She is also a Journey Group leader in association with Open Heart Ministry. 

Harmon and her husband, Mike, have one son, Austin, who is a freshman at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Mich. She is also a step-mom to her adult children, Randy and Stephanie. She is a 1992 graduate of Baylor University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism.

Wednesday’s guest soloist is Amy Beskow, who will be singing “Via Dolorosa,” accompanied by pianist Dr. Joe Martin, who is providing the pre-service music throughout the week. 

Beskow and her husband, Joel, are members of Field Street Baptist Church. The Beskows sing in the adult choir and are worship leaders with the church’s praise band.

Cathy Marchel, president of the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce, will lead the morning’s activities as host of the day. She and her husband, Justin, will also be welcoming those in attendance during the time of fellowship preceding the program.

Peggy Cross will deliver the invocation, with Vance Castles, Holy Week committee co-chairman, delivering the benediction. Samuel David Shaw will provide the Scripture reading accompanying Harmon’s message.

Several community and church groups will be recognized during the service including members of Heritage Assembly, volunteers with Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties, Cleburne Lions Club, Cleburne Chamber of Commerce, Cleburne Area Women’s Club, East Cleburne Community Center, CASA of Johnson County, First United Pentecostal Church, Ascension Lutheran Church, Church of the Holy Comforter, the faculty and staff of the Cleburne campus of Hill College and employees of Johnson County.

Thursday’s service will feature students of Cleburne High School with senior Gavin Hughes bringing the message. The Good Friday service will include lay speaker Jan Janszen with the choirs of Field Street Baptist Church and First Baptist Church bringing the special music.
