The Journey Toward Easter Continues
The Lord doesn’t just give us a gift, he prepares us to receive it, working and shaping us for a lifetime. How might you respond to God for choosing you?

Join us on Facebook Live at 9 or 11am,
and anytime after that on our webpage.

Modern Worship videos can be found here.
Current bulletins can be found here. 

Next Sunday, April 5:
God’s Will When We Are Not Willing

Easter is Still Coming!
No, we will not be able to gather under the roof of God's house to worship this Holy Week or Easter. But that does not mean that Holy Week or Easter are being canceled. We are being very creative in preparing worship opportunities for every step along our journey this Lenten/Easter season. 

Join us on Facebook Live for the following services.
Thursday, April 9 at 7pm
Maundy Thursday, Meditative Taize & Stories Told
You can join around your table.
"God's Will and Joyful Service"

Friday, April 10 at 12noon
Good Friday, Lights Extinguished & Word Spoken
You can join near a cross in your home.
"God's Will is Done"

Sunday, April 12 at 7am
Sunrise Easter Service, Message around the Campfire
You can join outside (around a campfire, if you'd like) at your home.
Be sure to send a selfie to our page. That way we can still "gather" for Easter!

"He is Risen: Celebrate the Savior"

Sunday, April 12 at 9am
Traditional Easter Service
You can join at home with a "watch party" inviting others on Facebook.
Be sure to send a selfie to our page. That way we can still "gather" for Easter!

God's Will and the New Creation

Essential Groups Move to Remote

Celebrate Recovery and Alanon will be meeting on their designated days and times through the online Zoom platform, along with all other groups at this time. These are confidential meetings, so if you are aware of a need, contact Pastor Melany for details. 

If at any time you would like to help those who are struggling due to loss of wages, staying home with kids, or other costs due to the health concerns we are all living with, feel free to give to the Pastor's Discretionary Fund. We assist with medical costs, utilities, and more.

You can drop off a check in the New Offering Drop Box under the canopy by the north doors anytime day or night. Or you can go on our webpage here and give through EasyTithe or Paypal. There is a drop down for EasyTithe that states "Pastor's Discretionary" or you can leave a memo on PayPal for which fund. 

NEW OFFERING DROP BOX
We now have a permanent locked drop box under the canopy at the north doors of the church for your convenience day or night, 365 days a year. Just open the door and place your gift in the slot. Finance Team has a key to open and collect all offerings. 

What NEXT STEPS will you be taking this Winter Semester?

Woodworking or knitting, bible study or book study, young adults or families with children. We have opportunities for everyone. Check out the NEXT STEPS on our webpage at www.umcmarshall.org

2020 KidzWay
Check out Rachel's fun videos on Facebook for all kids to enjoy at home with their families! 

 

We at MUMC are a wide-ranging group of followers, yet we have one thing in common: we love Jesus and our neighbor. We struggle together as we choose to love everyone, everywhere.

Ministries in Need of Prayer

Worship Services: that we will each join the LIVE worship services on Facebook (or on our webpage later in the week) and "share" the post so others in your circle can be given hope, as well. 

Spring Semester: that every member and friend at MUMC would reach out to others in their small group, checking in and letting them know they are loved. Also, that each of us would invite others to join our small groups as we continue to meet electronically. 

Finances: that our finances would continue during such time of chaos, assuring MUMC's ability to remain in our community to meet needs and foster spiritual growth.
