Three In-Person Easter Services

We’ll have three in-person worship services this weekend (with masks and social distancing). The first will be at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, 2021. The second and third will be on Sunday, April 4, 2021 at 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. It was great having 57 of you for Palm/Passion Sunday and I’m busy finding more seats for Easter.

(On a personal note, I’m also super excited to have my parents coming up on Saturday. We haven’t eaten a meal with them in more than a year, but they’re now fully vaccinated and Jenny and I are too.)

Tomorrow is Dickinson County Donate Day

Tomorrow, Friday, March 26, 2021, the Community Foundation of Dickinson County is doubling all donations made to the First UMC Endowment fund (up to $5,000). You can give online at http://www.donatedickinson.com or take a check down to the Community Foundation Office in the old Astra Bank Building.

To be clear: this money goes into the church’s endowment fund which means that we can only draw on the interest. For this reason we’re looking for donations that go above and beyond your regular giving.

Lilies for Easter

We don’t have any official supplier for Easter lilies this year, but if you would like to drop off a lily or have one delivered, that would be more than welcome. Let the church office know at office@abilenefirstumc.org or 785-263-2623 if your lily is in honor or memory of someone.

Plenty of Room in the Sanctuary

Last Sunday, after the Worship Service, those present helped me rearrange the designated seats in the sanctuary. We now have room for thirty households in each worship service. Assuming an average of three people in each household, that’s room for roughly ninety people in each service. If the Saturday and Sunday services both get filled up, we’ll simply add another service. There’s plenty of room for you to come back whenever it feels right.
