April 2021   
We shout Alleluia! Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed! But it began in the dim light and uncertainty. A grieving Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been rolled away. But she didn’t run singing “Alleluia!”, she came running to the disciples claiming that someone had taken their LORD away. How do we respond to stones that have been put in place – and those that have been rolled away?
Throughout our Lenten journey, we have been looking at ten objects in plain sight, using Jill J. Duffield’s devotional, Lent in Plain Sight (2020, Westminster John Knox Press). Every week, I offer an online reflection from the book. The Holy Week reflection (Coats, Towels and Thorns in Plain Sight) will appear on Wednesday, March 31. The Easter reflection (Stone in Plain Sight) will appear on Thursday, April 8. The series of videos are available on our Facebook page.
Sunday School in a Bag brings us to you!  
In February, we began a monthly Sunday School in a Bag program intended in bringing Sunday School home for pre-school through elementary. Easter bags are ready to be distributed. If you have not received a bag and would like one or if you volunteer to deliver one, please let Jeff or the office know.
Also look for news on Summer VBS and our Sunday School Plan for the fall!
