ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – The Engle­wood area’s two United Methodist churches have spe­cial events planned this week­end as Holy Week gets under­way for thou­sands of area Christians.

Fam­i­lies are invited to Gulf Cove United Methodist Church at 1100 McCall Road in Gulf Cove for fun and games at the annual Easter Festival.
