WE MEET

SUNDAYS

March 26, 2020 – Church Update on Coronavirus

Greetings!

 

I hope all of you are making the most of staying at home and staying safe! I am sorry that I have not emailed in a few days, but we are trying to figure out the right balance of communication. We had some people tell us that we send out too many emails while others tell us we aren’t sending enough. I guess we are all learning.

Even though we are not meeting physically, we have amazing opportunities available for worship and learning in which you can take part.

 

Tuesday Evening Study 

We will continue to offer our modified Family Faith Night each Tuesday beginning at 6:30 pm. I will continue to share my thoughts about books that have influenced my theology, faith, and preaching. This week, I will be sharing my thoughts on Rob Bell’s book, Velvet Elvis. I hope to see you on Facebook Live on Tuesday!

 

Sunday Morning Worship 

We are continuing with our online worship experience at 10:30 am every Sunday. Each week, we are learning how to improve our worship broadcast and it is worth taking a few moments to worship with us.

 

Holy Week Opportunities 
Palm Sunday: We will have palms available for you to pick up at the church. We invite you to pick up palms for you and your family beginning on Thursday, April 2nd. The palms will be on the curbside by the Sanctuary main entrance. Watch for more details in the coming days.

 

Maundy Thursday: Celebrating the Eucharist on the Thursday of Holy Week is a vital part of our Lenten journey. Just because we are not able to be physically together, doesn’t mean we can’t still be the Body of Christ. We will offer Communion online at different times during the day (4/9). If you want to participate, please download the app called ZOOM (either on your tablet, phone or laptop with a camera.) We will send out more information as Holy Week begins. If you have problems downloading ZOOM, let us know and we will help you with the download.

Good Friday: We will have an online worship experience available to remember the events of Good Friday. We are still working out all the details, so watch for more information in the coming days! I can promise you it will be a special dynamic time. After all, Barbara and Lahonda are creating the service and everything that they do is creative and amazing!

 

Easter: Wake up Easter morning, put on your Easter clothes and join us for worship. It might not be like Easter worship services as you have always experienced them, but we will celebrate the Resurrection in some incredible ways. A few United Methodist churches have gotten together to plan some very special anthems and music! You will not want to miss it! And yes, we will have Easter lilies for you to pick up. Contact Gail Perley if you want to order an Easter lily.

 

One more thing, if you have any prayer concerns please call the church office and leave a message OR email us at prayerconcerns@fumcmc.org.

 

I think that is all for now! We will send out more updates as they become available. Please Stay Safe and let us know if you need anything.

 

Breathe Peace,

 

Marty
