It seems impossible that Easter is just over a week away.  How often have you contemplated during this season of Lent exactly why we celebrate Easter?  It’s a far greater gift than chocolate Easter eggs!  Jesus gave his life.  What have you done for him?  One thing we can do is attend services during Holy Week to remember the journey Jesus was on that last week of his life.   Too many of us go from the celebration of Palms with Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem to the celebration of Easter without witnessing the week Jesus experienced in between.  On Sunday (April 9) we will take that walk with Jesus as we journey with him through each day of the week.  A moving service reminding us of God’s great gift to the world.  On Maundy Thursday at 7:00 join some of Jesus’ closest friends as we see their reactions at the Last Supper and contemplate his death.  And then Easter Sunday, Jesus lives!  Easter will be celebrated with the UCC congregation at 6:30 a.m. followed by breakfast.  Then make your way back to MUMC at either 8:30 or 10:30.  Glorious Day!

What TOMORROW MORNING holds is the PROM Shop!  Know anyone wanting to go to their Prom but cannot afford the clothes appropriate for the gala?  Send them to MUMC tomorrow from 9-noon to pick from a large assortment of beautiful outfits.

This Saturday (tomorrow) there is a Spaghetti Dinner beginning at 5 p.m. come for a Spaghetti Dinner in support the Youth Group’s summer mission trip!

The RED CROSS blood drive is on Thursday, April 13 from 9-2

Lots going on at MUMC.  I hope you’ll be there.

Blessings.  Casey
