Easter Sunday is March 27: Celebrate Easter with Us!
March 27, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm
We invite you and your loved ones to be part of our celebration of Easter at First United Methodist Church of Boulder! We have two worship services (8:00 and 10:30 am) with an Easter breakfast between them at 9:00 am, and an Easter egg hunt for our children on our church lawn at noon. Join us!
At 8 am we will have a Contemplative Easter Communion Service. Pat’s message will be Listening to the Silence of Easter Morning. On that first Easter morning, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to Jesus’ tomb to anoint his body. The walk to the tomb was filled with nothing but silence. What do you suppose they heard within their hearts and minds in those quiet morning moments? What will we hear this year in the quietness of the Easter morning? We will celebrate Holy Communion at this service.
At 9 am our youth will serve Easter Breakfast. Join us in the church parlor for this festive Easter meal and conversation as we delight in Easter Sunday. Our donations support our Summer Youth Mission Project.
At 10:30 am we will celebrate the glory of Easter in music, in prayer, and in story. Pat’s message will be Allowing Ourselves to be Resurrected. Almost everyone was confused on the first Easter Sunday. Most were simply afraid about what the future might hold. Others gave up nearly all their sense of hope. The resurrection realities seemed to be too much to take in. Over time, a few began to open their hearts and minds–their very beings–to the reality of resurrection. What can happen when we open ourselves to the idea of resurrection? Our Chancel Choir and the University of Wyoming Brass Quintet will help us celebrate Easter with glorious music. Join us!
At Noon we will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt on our church lawn. The wonders of Easter come alive as our children search for Easter treasures and treats even as all of us embrace the special gifts of Easter.
At First United Methodist Church of Boulder, we welcome absolutely EVERYONE to all worship services and church activities. God loves us all. No exceptions.
