Toward Sunday


We conclude our worship series Give Up Certainty for Lent: Live in the Parables of Jesus as we journey together this week through Holy Week. Please invite your Kitchen Table to join us…

We will gather for a simple meal on Maundy Thursday from 6:00-7:15 pm in the Social Hall on April 17.  This intergenerational worship service will weave music and prayer stations and the story of Jesus’ Last Supper through the lens of Godly Play.  

We will gather for a solemn remembering of Good Friday at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary on April 18.  We will gather around the cross as we hear the story, pray and remember the crucifixion of Jesus. We will offer a special activity for children ten and under while adults gather in the sanctuary.  

We will gather for Easter Sunrise in the Rose Garden of McKinley Park at 6:30 am.  Easter Sunrise will be a beautiful and reflective gathering in the garden as we celebrate resurrection as the sun rises on Easter morning.  

We will celebrate the beauty and mystery of Easter in the Sanctuary of Central UMC (5265 H Street) at 10:30 am with inspiring music and a relevant message.

Both Easter worship services will be rooted in Matthew 28.1-10.  

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb as the first day of the week was dawning…they were met with utter uncertainty as they felt the tremble of an earthquake and encountered the voices of angels.  You might say that Jesus’ life became a parable.  

If you have been following us online or at home,  how has  it been to give up certainty this Lent and live in the parables of Jesus?  What has been most challenging?  What has been most life-giving?  Finally, what feelings and thoughts come up for you as you consider Jesus’ life and death and resurrection to be a parable?
