Hi <<First Name>>

It is the holiest week. This is the week we remember that when we suffer, when we are betrayed, when the worst thing we can imagine happening, happens...we are not alone.  Jesus has been there and Jesus is with us now.

This is the week we remember that the worst thing is never the last thing! Thanks be to God, hope and love and life speaks loudest and last! Life has the final say! 

Come spend sometime today and this weekend with God!

We can't wait to see you (like really see you - not just across a screen) very soon! (remember masks are required at all in person events and don't come if your feeling sick)

So many opportunities to soak up and give thanks for God's unconditional love! Below are all the details. See you soon friends!
On Maundy Thursday we remember Jesus' last supper with his friends and disciples.  In memory of this we will gather around the table together! Bring your own dinner and drinks and we will have tables set up socially distant outside for us to eat together! 

You are also encouraged to bring items for Will Be Fed bags for our neighbors so they can eat too!  Needed items include individually packaged: water bottles, sweet snacks, non perishable fruit (apple sauce, fruit cups), non-perishable protein (peanut butter crackers, protein bars, Vienna sausage, nuts),  salty snack (chips, goldfish, pretzels).
On the night of Jesus' arrest before he was crucified he asked his disciples to stay up and pray with him.  To honor that request we spend the 24 hours from Maundy Thursday to Good Friday in prayer as a community. This is time to come and find God's peace your spirit is longing for.  This is the time to come grieve all that is broken and hurting in your life and in our world.  This is the time to give it all to God, and know that God hears, God cares and God is with you.

You can sign up to pray for an hour at your home or in the sanctuary.  We will provide you with devotionals and prayer guides to read or listen to during your hour of prayer.  We are also looking for people to serve as hosts at the church while others are praying.  Hosts will open the doors, welcome prayers, and help assemble Will Be Fed bags while they host.
