With Palm Sunday rapidly approaching, let me share with you all the services and events at Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church.
Palm Sunday worship will be held at 9:30 AM, and will be marked with the Sunday School children passing out palms to the congregation. Sunday School will be held as usual during the worship service after the Children’s Sermon. Coffee Hour will be enjoyed in Fellowship Hall.
As Holy Week progresses, a Maundy Thursday service will be held at 7:00 PM. On Good Friday the Sanctuary will be open from noon until 3:30 PM and a prayer vigil will ensure that the Sanctuary is not empty during those hours when Jesus suffered on the cross. In addition, at 7:00 PM there will be a Good Friday worship service.
On Easter morning at 6:30 AM, we will meet in the Memorial Garden at Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church to welcome the risen Christ and to send our songs of praise to our Heavenly Father. Following this short Sunrise service, a community breakfast will be hosted by the North Congregational Church in Fellowship Hall at PVUMC, a simple walk across the parking lot.
At 9:30 AM, the Easter worship service will take place; there will be no Sunday School for the children in order to allow the teachers and staff to attend the full worship hour. Coffee Hour will follow in Fellowship Hall. It will be a time for family and friends, as well as guests and visitors, to share a snack and fellowship.
It will be a busy place next week at PVUMC and all services are open to the public. We welcome guests and visitors to join with us as we share in the joy of the risen Lord.
