Come join Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, Sunday for a special fun day. They are again, on the Sunday after Easter, having one worship service outside on the church lawn, followed by lunch, inflatable games, a petting zoo, pony rides, youth kick ball, and lots of fun for all. Worship music will start at 10 a.m. on the grassy area in front of the entrance to the new addition.
Worship will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will include a celebration of music from all four of the regular services.
The Senior Pastor will deliver the message. Bring your own folding or camp chairs and arrive early between 10 and 10:30 a.m. so you can be set up before the worship starts. There will be nurseries but no Sunday School or children’s church.
At 11:30 a.m., lunch will be provided – waffles and chicken – food for the soul. You can eat indoors or out. After lunch will be a time to relax, meet others, visit, and watch the kids have fun.
Fun-Day Sunday is on, rain or shine. If it rains, worship will be in the sanctuary at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., with brunch or lunch after each service. The kids’ and youth activities will be indoors. If it looks like rain on Saturday, check for the updated plan. Tell friends, bring guests, bring chairs, and dress casually for a fun day.
The next meeting of the Book Review Group will be Saturday, May. 3, at 8 a.m. in the Adult Bldg., Room A-13. The book is "This Will Be Remembered of Her" by Megan McKenna. To order a copy of the book, contact Becky Hall 892-9363.
Friday, May 2 is an evening with Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe. "Sewing Hope" is the name of both a book and documentary (narrated by Forrest Whitaker) about this Ugandan nun who gives hope to young women formerly held captive by warlord Joseph Kony and the LRA. This evening is free and open to the public. Viewing of the documentary will begin at 7 p.m. A questions and answer time with Sister Rosemary will follow the viewing.
