A Message from Pastor Fred Mast
Lenten Greetings to our Sedona UMC Family & Friends,
As we enter the beginning of our Lenten journey together, it is my hope and prayer that you will truly experience the gift we have been given through Jesus Christ because “He Chose the Nails ”. It is a selfless act that changed the course of history and our world for all humanity. Once again we will journey together through the 40 days of lent… each day moving closer and closer to the day that Jesus freed us on the cross. And it is a journey I have emphasized over and over is so important for each of us to enter. I invite you to make this journey a priority in your life!
Over the course of the next 6 weeks I will embark on a sermon series entitled “He Chose the Nails”— based on the book from renowned author and Pastor Max Lucado. We will look at the amazing journey that Jesus made for us out of love. A journey that began as God incarnate came to earth to show us the way to live our lives, and to lead us on a path that might lead us to everlasting life. Our journey will culminate on Easter Sunday as we celebrate once again the glorious resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Join me starting on March 14th, as we delve deeper into this topic with the Lenten Bible Study on Tuesdays at 10:30AM in the conference room.
Come and invite your family and friends on Friday March 10th @ 6:00PM for our monthly Family Movie Night featuring the powerful movie “Risen” the journey of a non-believer given the mission by Pilate to disprove the “Risen Christ” a journey that ultimately changes him forever. As always dinner will be provided and there is no charge for our family movie nights.
Palm Sunday, April 9th will feature a “Procession of the Palms” and begin to focus us in on “God’s Promise of the Cross” as well as prepare our hearts for “Holy Week”.
On Holy Thursday, April 13th beginning at 6:00PM you are invited to join in a “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 Holy Communion.
On 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 resurrection on Easter Sunday!
Easter 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.
This is truly such a spirit filled time in the life of our congregation— and provides 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.
Grace & Peace,
