Maundy Thursday Service
“Tenebrae”
Thursday April 2nd 7:00 pm
Maundy Thursday is that special occasion during Holy Week when Christians pause to remember more of the passion of Christ. It began the evening of His last supper with the disciples before going to the Garden of Gethsemane where he would be arrested. This evening service is a Tenebrae service meaning, ‘shadows’. Through the service of liturgy, hymns, Holy Communion, and the drama of Christ’s passion, we are emotionally moved to the anguish and agony of Jesus. As we move from candle light into darkness we feel the suffering; even to the chill of the stone rolled across the tomb.


Lenten Study
March 31 6:00 pm
There will be no Pastor's Bible Study on Wednesday mornings during this time.


“24 Hours that Changed the World”

MUMC Fellowship Hall Dining Room; Bread and soups start at 6pm and study starts about 6:30pm with an introduction and then an 11 minute DVD followed with group reflection and study concluding at 8pm.

 Adam Hamilton retraces the day that changed human history in his usual straightforward yet easy, conversational style that speaks to both long-time Christians and those who are simply curious about the story of Christ’s crucifixion. We’ll travel with Adam through the last 24 hours of Jesus; life from the last supper to Gethsemane, to the trial and to the crucifixion.

The small group DVD shot on location in the Holy Land includes 6 sessions.  Study Books will be available and recommended at an advanced cost of $10 each. Sign up sheet in fellowship hall. Order books through office or see Pastor Murray.  Last day to order books is Thursday Feb. 12th.  Order books at office or see Pastor Murray. There are scholarship funds available for anyone who may have need; please see Pastor Murray.
