Easter At Clair Church
I’ll be honest, this year, Easter isn’t the biggest thing on my mind right now. It’s the impending birth of my third child, which could be any day now. However, as your pastor, I need you to know how important Easter is for The Church, and especially our church, Clair Church.
This is our biggest holiday of the year.
More people may attend at Christmas, or your family may make a bigger deal out of Christmas, but when it comes to the significance of the day and what we celebrate, Easter is it. Without Easter, Christmas doesn’t really matter.
So, I want you, your family, and as many people as you can possibly get to celebrate the Easter season with us.
It starts with Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday, April 9, 2017. In the middle of the week, in the evening on Wednesday, April 12, we will have a Holy Week Service that includes Holy Communion and a time of remembering The Passion of Christ. Then, the big Celebration of The Resurrection on Easter Sunday, April 16.
Our Easter Sunday schedule begins with breakfast from 9am-10am, continues with an Easter Egg Hunt for kids at 10:15am, and then our Worship Celebration at 10:45am. (For those of you in a Sunday School Class, your teacher may still have you meet from 9:30-10:30am, with flexibility to grab breakfast if you like.)
It will be a fun and meaningful day for the whole family. Celebrate Easter at Clair Church!
At this meeting, the Governing Board will communicate the work they've been doing and our plans for the future.
On Sunday, March 19th at noon, Clair United Methodist Church will have a called Charge Conferrnce in order to fill vacancies of elected officers. This will be the only business conducted. As an Elder of the church with permission from our District Superintendent, Rev. Cindy Buhman, Rev. Ben Mulford will preside over the Charge Conference. Those who are invited to vote at a Charge Conference are those already duly elected officers. This is in accordance with our UMC Book of Discipline. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Mulford.
You wouldn't try to drive a car on an empty tank of fuel. You wouldn't try to vacuum your house without plugging into electricity. Your smartphone doesn't work when the battery is dead. Your glass doesn't quench your thirst if it's empty. So why would you try to live life without love? This Lent, discover how to Live Loved.
