Through a Child's Eyes
Sundays Through Lent
9:00am & 11:00am

"Why Do You Have To Go?"
Through a child's eyes, why did Jesus have to die? Rather than wanting to stay as we are, God calls each of us to die to self, so we might live through Christ, bearing much fruit.

"Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit."

Holy Week is Just Around the Corner
Invite someone today and plan to offer them a ride or meet them at the door!

Medications Found Around Church
Twice in two weeks staff has found loose pills (or in plastic baggies) in the church. After taking them to the pharmacy, it was determined some were pain meds. These are very dangerous for teens and small children. Some were found on a bathroom counter in the children's wing, while others were on the floor. Please use caution with any meds while on the premise.

I Love My Church!

Camp Scholarships!
DID YOU KNOW? Last year MUMC sent 23 students to church camp. Each student received a partial scholarship, totaling nearly $5,000 in camp scholarship funds! These scholarships allowed campers to make new friends, have new experiences, and grow in relationship with God.

Throughout March all Mission Funds will go to MUMC’s Camp Scholarship Fund. Camp changes lives. Help change a student’s life today!

Our kids will silently act out the Lord’s Supper while adults read their parts. If your child would like to participate, sign them up on the Connection Card. If you would be willing to be a youth or adult reader for one of the children at the table, please sign up, as well. 

Easter is Coming… and so is the EGGSTRAVAGANZA!
Join us Saturday, March 31 from 10:30am-Noon.

Our annual Easter egg hunt is a perfect opportunity to invite the community – children, parents, grandparents, neighbors, and more – into our church to show them some extravagant hospitality and a really fun time!! How can you, your family, and/or your small group get involved?
Here are some suggestions:
STUFF:   We’ve got LOTS of plastic Easter eggs. Candy donations and egg stuffers are always appreciated.

CRAFT :  In the past, kids have LOVED making easy and adorable crafts with us. Help us select, prep, and teach crafts.

BOUNCE :  Last year we rented a bounce house and the kids had a BLAST! You can help by supervising this area and
keeping kids safe.

SET-UP: Good Friday, March 30, we will be setting up for the event immediately following the Community Good Friday Service. Can you join us?

CLEAN-UP: Easter is still COMING!!  Clean up is an important part of this event, making sure our church looks ready to welcome MORE guests on Easter morning! Most clean-up will be from 11:30am-1:00pm.

SIGN-UP: Volunteer to help during the event! Volunteers are needed for hospitality, crafts, to help with counting and logistics, and of course, hiding eggs!!!
Let the Discipleship Team know how YOU can help take this year’s Eggstravaganza from good… to GREAT!

Thank you,
Rachel and Pastor Matt

It's Finally Happening!
Easter Sunday, April 1

Oaklawn Hospital has partnered with us to open our new Community Exchange Store in downtown Marshall. We will receive our key on April 1 and then the work begins. We'll be painting and setting up the display furniture and racks, training volunteers, and receiving items to prepare the store for opening sometime this summer.
