Sunday – Palm Sunday Worship Service

March 25, 4:00 pm
Boulevard United Methodist Church – worshiping at Fox Elementary

Thursday – Maundy Thursday Service

April 13, 6:30 pm
Pace and Boulevard United Methodist Church @ The Pace Ceter
700 West Franklin Street

Members of Boulevard UMC and Pace are coming together for a Maundy Thursday Event that looks like a meal woven into a worship service. There will be Mediterranean food. If you care to bring something, reach out and I’ll let you know what we still need. Otherwise, bring yourself, maybe a friend, and a willingness to receive what God has to offer the Church and what we have to offer one another during Holy Week.

Friday – Good Friday Downtown Walk

March 30, 9:30 am
Third Street Bethel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church – 614 North 3rd Street

The Stations of the Cross is a devotion to the Passion of Christ, retelling a series of events at the end of Jesus’ life. On Good Friday, we gather in the morning to walk the downtown streets stopping at churches and city hall. At each station, we pause for a couple of minutes to hear that part of the story account, reflection and prayers. In between the stations as we walk, we talk with our neighbors who journey with us. It is a time of reflection, fellowship, and celebration as followers of Jesus Christ. We hope you will consider journeying with us. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes for the walk. Vans will be available for those who are unable to walk to the nine stations. There will be a police escort for our safety.

 

Friday – Good Friday Worship Service

March 30, 7:30 pm
Centenary United Methodist Church – 411 East Grace Street

On Good Friday we witness the execution of Jesus, recognize our ongoing complicity with the powers of death, and are called to enter the Great Silence of all creation in response to the death of its God and Maker.
