Today, on Easter, we celebrate the risen Christ! He is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Our services are being held with in-person attendance at 10 a.m. Sunday morning. Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.
Our Scripture Reading is from Luke 24:1-12 NRSV. In the gospel of Luke, we hear how on Sunday following Passover, three women (of Jesus’s followers) came to Jesus’s tomb, expecting to prepare his body for burial. However, he wasn’t there – and in his place, angels tried to explain what was going on. The women shared the news with the apostles, as we share the news today!
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC. Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.
I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
The message today from Rev. Dr. Linda Holbrook is “Easter.”
