Experiencing "The Easter Countdown" at Amlin United Methodist Church
Here at Amlin United Methodist Church, we are in a time of spiritual preparation and focus as we approach Easter. This time of focusing on the basics of our faith, called "Lent" by many Christians, is a kind of spiritual spring cleaning for the soul. It is a great time as a visitor to step into a new church as we prepare for Easter together.This year, Easter is on April 20. But before we arrive at the biggest day of the Christian year, doesn't it make sense to reflect on all that Jesus and his followers experienced prior to that Sunday of celebration? We are also in the midst of a sermon series called "Committed to Christ." Each week until Easter, we will take a fresh look at a basic pattern of the Christian life, including prayer, reflection, worship, giving, and service in our community. Each week is designed for a person starting fresh in the Christian life. We hope you'll join us as we journey toward Easter together!Holy Week begins April 13 with Palm Sunday. Children and adults will wave palm branches as we throw donated clothing and coats into the aisle. Children will have fun as adults cheer for them as they walk down the church aisle toward the children's message. In this way, children will experience some of the joy that Jesus felt as he entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday many years ago. What a great way to experience the celebration, while also receiving clothing donations for the Westside Freestore!On Holy Thursday, April 17, we will join together at 6 PM for a potluck and communion service, which will include a dramatic interpretation of the Last Supper. All are invited to attend and participate. We will have plenty of food, so as our guest there's no need to bring anything.Easter Sunday will begin at our outdoor casual "sunrise" service at 8:00 am, which will be led by our youth and include a drama. Following the service, we will have our annual "Peep Roast" and enjoy some Easter candy over the campfire! We will also have an Easter breakfast for our more traditional celebrators that begins at 8:30am. The breakfast is free, although we will be accepting donations for an international mission project that will alleviate suffering in our world. We also invite you to our 9:30am traditional and 11am contemporary worship services.We hope you will join us at Amlin United Methodist Church this season. It's a great time to visit and worship with us!
