Family Oasis Update

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Exciting news! The brand new Family Oasis that kicked off last month with a three week trial was a smashing success. We had an average of 15 adults and 8 children each week! Those families who joined us on this brave new adventure have decided to continue meeting every other Wednesday as the Family Oasis.

We will be starting fresh this Wednesday, February 27 with the study of a wonderful book, On Being a Gay Parent by Brett Webb-Mitchell. This book deals with complicated issues such as coming out to your kids, navigating the school system and the challenges your children might face there, surviving the holidays, and much more. The best part — it’s written with a Christian perspective.

For more info, contact Melody Merida at (317) 722-0000 or mmerida@jesusmcc.org, or just join us on Wednesday evening.

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!
