The Church at Worship Second Sunday of Easter United Methodist Women Sunday

The Church at Worship
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
I have a glorious heritage.
I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;
even at night my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me;
the LORD is at my right hand;
I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices;
my body also dwells secure.
For you do not give me up to Sheol,
or let your godly one see the pit
You show me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy,
in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

Second Sunday of Easter
United Methodist Women Sunday
Join us this summer as we become Storm Trackers and explore how to
“weather life” and discover that God is always watching over us come rain,
snow, sleet or shine! All camps are held at Epworth By The Sea.
The summer camp 5 day forecast promises worship, small groups, in-depth
Bible study and much more. As Storm Trackers we will learn how to
“weather life’ with a Savior who causes the sun to shine and commands the
winds and waves to be still. Our God is faithful come rain or shine!

The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* Church,
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

In Our Prayers
You always have to be careful when you begin a statement with, “I know
we have never done it this way before, but...” I did such a thing just a few
months ago. Even though it is not designated by the United Methodist
Church, UMW Sunday is usually celebrated on the second Sunday in
March, which was the second Sunday in Lent this year. Because I had
planned a sermon series for Lent, I said, “I know we have never done it
this way before, but...”
So, this year we did something different, and, in fact, we are doing it this
Sunday. We are celebrating UMW Sunday this week, and the UMW will be
running the entire worship service at 11:00 a.m. We will not have a 9:00
a.m. service this week as all of our attention will be on the UMW in one
service; Sunday school will be at 10:00 a.m. UMW members will be leading
worship, playing the organ, teaching the children's sermon, ushering, and I
will be participating some as well being that I am designated by The Discipline as a member of the UMW.
You do not have to be a UMW member to recognize the tremendous contribution of the women of the UMW. They do so much good in our church,
in the community, and around the world. We are celebrating the women
of the church this Sunday, so if you don't like women, then don't come to
church. Or, to put it another way, if you don't come to worship this
Sunday, we will all just assume you don't like women. Seriously, we
should all make an effort to be in worship this Sunday to celebrate the
UMW. UMW Sunday only comes once a year, and this year it is this
Sunday. See you there!
Blessings to you,
