A Message from Pastor Fred Mast
Easter Greetings to our Sedona UMC Family & Friends,
As we prepare our hearts for Easter (Resurrection) Sunday, I began to reflect once again in the quietness of one crisp morning—the True and Amazing Gifts that God gave to creation through the life of Jesus Christ.
I think of the gift that Jesus gave in becoming one of us and walking, teaching, experiencing and showing us the purpose of life. I think of the unbelievable gift of forgiveness that God gave creation, a gift given free of charge, no strings attached—a gift that cost God so much and benefitted humanity in ways that are immeasurable. The precious gift of inviting us into God’s very presence—into an intimate relationship for all eternity. A tearing away of all barriers through the tearing of Christ’s own flesh—No longer does anything or anyone stand between God and us. We know God loves us, but the message of Easter reminds us again—the gift of abundant, unconditional, and unlimited love that comes to us through Jesus Christ.
And as we enter once again this most holy time of the year, as we stand and cheer the arrival of Christ—as we journey with Christ through his final week here on earth—we are reminded of the truest of all the gifts that God gives and Christ brings. Turning tragedy to triumph, bringing life from death—we remember the greatest gift of all—the hope, joy, and peace that comes through knowing—
“Savior Divine, forever mine. No longer blind, now Christ I see.”
I look forward to joining you in the culmination of our Lenten Journey this year as we celebrate together— Palm Sunday, April 9th featuring a “Procession of the Palms”, joyous music, and a celebratory atmosphere which will focus us in on “God’s Promise of the Cross” centering our hearts toward “Holy Week”.
Holy Thursday, April 13th beginning at 6:00PM our “Feast of Friends”, as we begin the evening with a light potluck style dinner around the cross – in the theme of the Last Supper followed by a Service of preparation and a remembrance of that first Holy Communion in the Upper Room.
Good Friday, April 14th beginning at 7:00PM we gather in one of the most powerful services of the year to remember and reflect on the “Passion of Christ”, a dramatic & powerful Service of Shadow and Remembrance as we walk with Jesus through the final hours of His earthly life. You do not want to miss this service as we prepare for His glorious and incredible resurrec-tion on Easter Sunday!
Easter—Resurrection Sunday, April 16th we begin the day with a Sunrise Service @ 6:30am on the patio—come and watch the sun rise on this glorious morning in God’s creation as we worship outdoors. You are also invited to join us for our 9:30am Traditional Service. Both of our Easter worship services will include a celebration of Holy Communion.
A spirit filled time in the life of our congregation—providing each of us the opportunity to share this gift from God with family and friends by inviting them, picking them up, and bringing them to share in these special events and services.
This dear friends is what Easter truly means to me! HAPPY EASTER.
Grace and Peace,
~ Pastor Fred ~
