Lenten Prayer Experiences
Tuesdays at 9 a.m. and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m., PWUMC Sanctuary
As we enter into Lent, a season of refocusing and fasting, we are reminded that we are called to be a praying people. You are invited to join in a time of prayer, throughout the Lenten season, as we seek God’s will and guidance for the Platte Woods UMC community.
To celebrate the Triumphal entry, we will have a special processional of children with palm leaves at the 9:15 and 10:45 services on Sunday, March 25. For more information about logistics on this Sunday, please contact Pastor Jessica Richard, director of Children’s Ministries.
Holy Thursday Dinner, March 29, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
You are invited to experience a taste of Passover. Jesus’ final days to Jerusalem where he will be crucified and buried begin with this meal. We prepare ourselves for Good Friday and Easter by sharing in a simple meal of roast lamb, boiled eggs, haroseth (an apple and nut salad that is a reminder of when the Hebrews were slaves to the Egyptians and forced to make bricks), bread, grape juice, and a seasonal Jewish dessert. We will hear the story as recorded in the Bible, eat together, and then conclude our time with Holy Communion. As this is a new event, it is important for you to register so we have enough food.
Reserve your spot online by Wednesday March 21. Children (3 and up) are invited. Reserve childcare( for 2 & under) at email@example.com. If you are interested in helping prepare the meal, please contact Pastor Nancy.
Good Friday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m.
Join us for a visual and scriptural experience of the crucifixion and death of Jesus preparing our hearts for Jesus’ resurrection. The service will be at 7:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. Childcare will be provided for 3 yr. and under.
Easter Prayer Vigil, March 30-March 31
Platte Woods United Methodist Church invites you to join in a special time of prayer this Easter Weekend. From the conclusion of the Good Friday service on March 30 through the beginning of our Easter Saturday Celebration service on March 31, members of the PWUMC community will cover our church and our world in prayer. Special prayer guides and stations will help participants as they reflect on the sacrifice and resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ. This is open to individuals, families or other groups. We have four slots open for each hour, and we ask that participants come to the church sanctuary during their shift for prayer. Sign up to participate online.
If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Jake Schneider.
Of all the days of the year in the life of the church, none has a spirit of celebration quite like Easter, when we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. We hope you and your family will join us as we celebrate Easter 2018.
