Pastor's Weekly Message April 15, 2019

People of Hope, Good Morning:  

A special thank you goes out to all the musicians who participated in creating a very meaningful Palm Sunday musical worship service.  When we tell the old, old story in different ways, we hear new things that can set us on a new path. Thank you, Carol Mathew, for applying your talents to the musicians and to the Holy Week Message.  

Many of you received the Holy Week Passport yesterday, detailing the Holy Week schedules for all five United Methodist Churches in Billings.  Additional Passports are available at the church.  You can get a stamp (or sticker) at any of the five churches for any service you attend.  In addition, the Passport includes basic information about each service.  It can be very helpful in explaining things, such as the word ‘Maundy.’  You are invited to any and all of the Holy Week services at all five churches.

This Wednesday is our last Lenten Soup & Bread Supper, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Also, even if you’ve missed the other Wednesday evening studies, you are welcomed to join us at 6:15 p.m. to learn more about Simon Peter.

Hope will be celebrating Maundy Thursday at 7:30 p.m.  The choir will be singing as we prepare to celebrate Holy Communion.  The theme of the service is ‘Meals We Have Known and Loved.’

Easter celebrates Jesus’ Resurrection.  We also celebrate the ‘mini resurrections’ we see around us each spring and we seek to experience resurrection in our lives.  Hope’s ‘Sonrise’ Service is at 7:00 a.m. on the church lawn.  The joyful time will be followed by breakfast provided by the Men’s Groups.  Our traditional Easter Worship service will be at 9:30 a.m.  The theme of the service will be Easter in Our Lives.’

May God bless you and those you love as we live remembering the blessings of Holy Week and Easter.

We end this note with the traditional Easter Greeting:

Christ is Risen!

Christ is Risen, Indeed!

Shalom,

Jim
