Muskegon Area Holy Week & Easter Events

HOLY THURSDAY – MARCH 24
Lake Harbor UMC will host a potluck at 6:15 p.m.  People are invited to bring finger foods such as those that might have been a part of Jesus’ meal with the disciples.  We’ll worship at 7:00 p.m. with a celebration of Holy Communion and an opportunity for footwashing.  Your church may already plan for this time of worship, but I wanted you to be aware of it.  It’s an opportunity for you to worship if you don’t have a service at your church that night.  Please feel free to pass it along.
We also host a prayer vigil beginning after Holy Thursday worship that continues overnight until Good Friday at noon.  There are people there all night as hosts, and you’re welcome to come and pray anytime.  Again, I offer that to you and your congregation as another opportunity to be in prayer as we consider Jesus’ love and sacrifice.

GOOD FRIDAY – MARCH 25
Temple UMC will host worship at 12:00 p.m.
Again, your church may already plan for this time of worship, but it might be an opportunity for those who work in Muskegon to join us.  Please feel free to pass it along.

EASTER SUNRISE – MARCH 27
One tradition at Lake Harbor is to celebrate Easter morning at Mona Lake Boat Club (off Randall Rd.).  We plan for a 7:00 a.m. meeting, and we’re usually done by 7:30 a.m.  Jeff Bowman and I have made plans for the service; it will be a meaningful time for us to consider the power of resurrection in our lives.
It is not intended to replace Easter worship services, but simply a time to gather and reflect with music and Scripture.  An offering will support Muskegon Rescue Mission’s discipleship program
