Easter LilyWalk Through Holy Week with Prospect UMC!

As the Holy Season of Lent comes to a close, end your journey by joining Prospect UMC for special services and opportunities for fellowship throughout Holy Week.

The celebration will begin during worship on Palm Sunday (April 13) by remembering Christ's triumphant arrival to Jerusalem through a Parade of Palms and Gifts. Two special worship services — held at 7:00 PM — will recount the events of Maundy Thursday (April 17) and Good Friday (April 18).

Then, on Easter Sunday (April 20), we will rejoice in the risen Christ at a Sunrise Service at 7:00 AM and Easter Service at 9:00 AM. All also are invited to join us for an Easter Breakfast following the early service before gathering for an Easter Egg Hunt at 9:00 AM.

Minister's Monthly Message

The Great "I Am"

Long before Popeye declared, "I am, who I am," Jesus made some pretty powerful "I am" declarations about himself. We have been delving into these "I Am" statements from the Gospel of John as part of our Journey to Holy Week and Easter.
