A WORD FROM THE PASTOR
Now, Holy Week 2019 is upon us. There is much for you to join in on, AND many
opportunities to serve and get involved.
We will join with Emmaus UMC as is our tradition. What is not tradition,
is worshipping in broken up facilities.
Since Emmaus is need in the rebuild process, they will serve as the host
church on Friday even though it will be here.
Their members are providing the luncheon which will begin at 1130 in our
fellowship hall. So please make every
effort to come out and this uniquely allows US to support them by coming to our
After lunch we will join in a unique Tenebrae style
service based on the Last 7 responses to Christ on the Cross.
I hope to see you all and your friends in church this
evening as we join Jesus and his disciples in the upper room, as I step your
through a passover seder to put us in context for the remainder of our week.
