Youth Sunday (taking place April 26th). We will discuss the theme of the service, sign-up for various roles and

Mother’s Day? Would you like to support the Guatemala Project but don’t feel you can take a mission trip? Mark your
calendars and allow time in your schedule to come to Founders Hall between services and after second service. There
will be tables of colorful handwoven items from the Mayan Highlands of Guatemala, hand carved items, jewelry,
crèches, ceramics, stuffed animals for grandkids, purses and laptop bags, and more. All proceeds from the sale support
the Guatemala Project in building more schools and putting more stoves in Mayan homes to improve their health. In
addition, we will have a table where you can learn about and donate to the Guatemala Project scholarship program to
help Mayan children attend school. Also, maybe you are interested in going on a mission trip. Carol Conger-Cross,
project director, will be at the sale and happy to talk to you about going to Guatemala to install stoves and/or work
on a school.
NEW SERMON SERIES AND SMALL-GROUP STUDY BEGINNING APRIL 19. Join us in walking with John Wesley
(one of the founders of Methodism) on his journey to enlivened faith, as we explore our own spiritual revival in
this 5-week series. You can register for a small group using the registration form in your bulletin by leaving it in
the offering plate or with the Adult Education team on the patio following worship. They will also be happy to
answer any questions you might have regarding the small-groups or registration. The study and series are based on
the book Revival: Faith as Wesley Lived it by Adam Hamilton, which can be purchased on the patio as well as in
the front office for a suggested donation. We hope you will join us in journeying together toward renewed and
deepening faith!

UPCOMIMG EVENTS:
SPECIAL CONCERT OF SONGS “AN ENGLISH SPRING” ON SATURDAY APRIL 25, AT 5:00 PM our very own
Michael Blinco will present a free concert with pianist Gabriel Arregui and a special guest chorus led by Bill
Hatcher. They will be performing The House of Life and Five Mystical Songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams as well
as The Songs of the Sea by Charles Villiers Stanford. The House of Life uses the poetry of Dante Gabriel Rossetti
and the sweeping tunes of R.V.W. to set forces of nature such as Life, Death and Love as characters in a vision, all
being pushed towards a common end. The Songs of the Sea are a wonderful set of songs with a nostalgic and even
comic look at life at sea. The Mystical Songs wrap up this Eastertime concert with a boisterous proclamation of the
risen Lord and the human desire to praise Him. We hear Michael every week in the choir and as a soloist in
services. Outside of SDUMC he has appeared on the Opera stages of San Diego Opera, Los Angeles Opera,
Chicago Lyric Opera, Pacific Opera Project and Tuscia Opera Festival in Viterbo Italy. Last June he took the first
place vocal prize in the Musical Merit Foundation of Greater San Diego County and has also been a prize-winner in
the Virginia Hawk, NATS San Diego and La Jolla Symphony Chorus and Orchestra competitions. Gabriel Arregui
holds degrees from the University of Southern California and Loma Linda University. He has appeared in recital
with sopranos Julianne Baird and Rosa Lamoreaux, has taught 18th-century counterpoint, and has performed for
Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh, and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Arregui currently serves as Organist
-Choirmaster at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Encinitas, California. There will be a
free-will offering at the intermission to benefit the music ministry of SDUMC.
SAN DIEGO NORTH COAST SINGERS YOUTH CHORUS 22ND ANNUAL SPRING CONCERT “I Dream a World” will

LOOKING FOR MORE?
Often times, the sermons you hear on Sunday mornings are focused on a scripture or two that are designated
for that day by our Common Lectionary. This calendar of scriptures is used around the world by Christian
churches to ensure a broad diversity of texts are read and studied each year. You will find here, as well as in
many devotional books, the texts for the coming Sunday. We invite you to look to them and pray through
them this week in your own study and personal devotion—
Acts 3:12-19; Psalm 4 (UMH 741); 1 John 3:1-7; Luke 24:36b-48
