Palm Sunday and Holy Week

We will live stream worship on Palm/Passion Sunday, April 5 at 10:30 am. We will live stream a brief worship service on both Holy Thursday, April 9, and Good Friday, April 10 at 7 pm. To prepare for Holy Thursday, you are invited to have bread and grape juice so you can partake in Holy Communion during the live stream worship at your home. (If you can’t get grape juice, you may just eat the bread.) On Easter, April 12, we will only live stream the 10:30 am worship service. Questions? Call the church office 386-4411 or email us at pastor@jeffumc.com. God is with you.

March 29

March 29, 5th Sunday of Lent, in the assigned scriptures is about Jesus’ week before Holy Week. Prepare for worship by reading John 11:1-45. http://bible.oremus.org/ Hear again the story of Jesus bringing Lazarus back to life. A wonderful story of hope!
