Art Auction April 19!

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Dinner, Art Show, and Auction!

Childhood Memories—Adult Dreams!

That’s the theme for our 2008 Art Auction, and you won’t want to miss it! This Auction will raise funds for our Children’s and Missions Ministries.

This Auction is not just a fundraiser, it’s an event! We’ll have an over-the-top extravaganza beginning with the art preview and amazing food at 6:00 pm.

We will bring back fond memories of childhood, with a gourmet twist on favorite foods from another era. We’ll be entertained by a magician, a balloon artist and a face painter, then the auction will begin at 7:30 pm.

Kids under 13 are admitted free—but please let us know they’re coming, so we can make arrangements.

Tickets are on sale at the church on Sundays for $20, or patron packages of 10 tickets for $150. To reserve tickets or to advertise in the auction program, please email us.

Holy Week at Jesus MCC

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Devotions for Holy Week: During Holy Week, we’ll offer several special devotionals as part of Be Still and Know.

Easter Egg Hunt, March 15, 11:00 am to noon. All kids are invited to join us for cool games, exciting prizes and lots of eggs to find!

Palm Sunday Service, March 16, 9:30 am, 11:00 am, and 6:00 pm, to mark the start of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday Service, March 20, 7:00 pm. We will gather to celebrate a traditional Jewish Seder meal, which marks the start of Passover. This is the meal Jesus would have shared with his followers the night before his death. Maundy Thursday is a “hands on” way to connect the Old Testament stories with the New Testament resurrected Christ.

Good Friday Service, March 21, 7:00 pm. A somber, contemplative service with stunning music and drama.

Have you ever thought about what Jesus’ disciples thought and felt when their Master was betrayed and crucified? That will be the focus of our powerful Good Friday Service.

We’ll hear from John and Peter about what appeared to be the loss of their dreams. They will show us what that group of Jesus followers experienced as that Passover weekend unfolded. Their lives would be altered forever, as their dreams were nailed to the cross with their Messiah. Join us for The Loss of a Dream.

Easter Services, March 23, 9:30 am, 11:00 am, and 6:00 pm. Join us as we celebrate together the power of resurrection!
