Join us online for Holy Week.
Sunday, April 5th
Worship will be a celebration of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem complete with the waving of palms and more. NextGen Ministries Director Kyle Kranes-Rutz is creating a palm for children and adults to color and cut out. You can also bring in some greenery from outdoors.
Please print and color this palm or create your own and take a picture of your child(ren) and email it to Kyle for a special slide show he is creating for Sunday. Also, attached you will find a color sheet you can do and send to Kyle to be added into the slide show of Jesus riding in on the donkey. Download HERE. Please post to Social media and tag Webster Hill UMC in your post as well.
Thursday, April 9th
We’re sharing the table Sacred Suppers liturgy again this year. It’s a way to gather around a home table and remember the night Jesus gave the commandment to us to “Love one another.” The liturgy was created by Webster Hills UMC member, Maggie Gann and has been shared over 200 times with churches across the country. You can imagine sharing in a meal and some remembrances of that night along with people near and far. Again, we hope you will share pictures of your table with us. Consider reaching out to other households to create a shared experience with your phone or whatever technology you are comfortable using.
Friday, April 10th
We also invite you to join us online for our Good Friday Tenebrae Service. In this “service of darkness,” we will commemorate Christ’s final hours on earth with readings, scriptures, and song. Rev. Dr. Martha Robertson, Andy Waggoner, Connie Haley, and Connor Scott will lead us in this service. We encourage you to find at least one candle that you will designate as your Christ Candle and be prepared to extinguish the light with our worship leaders.
Sunday, April 12th
Many have noted that this Easter has the potential to draw us closer to the experiences of the disciples on that first resurrection morning. The disciples were afraid, locked away in the rooms when they heard the good news that Jesus was alive. Do you see it? We too, are at home, worried and wondering about what is to come. We promise to make our online worship on April 12 big, bold and joy-filled. We also promise two “Easters” this year because that first Sunday when our congregation is able to be back together again will be a remembrance of Easter, new life and new hope.
Families - We have got an amazing online experience for the whole family - Easter Jam and a virtual Egg Hunt for you to join in! Check your emails and social media on Easter to join us.
