Regular worship services have been cancelled for the next few weeks as well as Sunday School. Our Pastors will be doing our worship services on Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/cumcshelby/. Note: you do not need to have a FB page in order to watch these videos. Sermons and special services will also be available for online viewing on our Latest Sermons page.
Join us for worship on:
Palm Sunday, April 5th at 10 a.m.
Good Friday Tenebrae, April 10th at 7:30 p.m.
Easter, April 12th at 10 a.m.
Below are several projects we are working on for worship with which you can help us:
Virtual Palm Processional
Take a video using your smart phone or other recording device of you and/or your family waving “palms” that we can utilize in our virtual palm processional. These “palms” can be branches from bushes or shrubs. We would like to have video of our members waving them or even marching down the street in front of your home. Everyone can be involved—children, youth and adults. Please email your video to Pastor Mark at [email protected] by 8 pm on Friday, April 3.
Flower Cross for Easter
We had hoped to invite worshippers to bring flowers to adorn our Easter cross on April 12. Since we will not be able to physically assemble in our Sanctuary, we invite you to make a flower cross. It can be as simple as finding flowers in your yard and arranging them in the shape of a cross on at table or in the grass or fastening them to two crossed sticks in the shape of the cross. If you don’t have anything blooming, feel free to use artificial flowers. Take a picture of it along with your family and email it to Pastor Mark at [email protected] by 8 pm on Friday April 10.
Celebrating the Light Among Us
Another project we are preparing for the Sundays in Easter (Easter through Ascension Sunday), is to highlight those in our congregation who have been meaningful in our spiritual journeys. We invite particularly children and youth to tell us who has made a difference in their lives and why. This can be video taped or written and emailed with a picture of the contributor. These can be emailed to Pastor Mark at [email protected] any time until May 1.
Continuing: God Moments
Thanks to those who have shared “God Moments.” We would like to continue highlighting these in Sunday worship. If you have seen God at work during these difficult weeks, make a video telling us about it or write it down and send a picture to Pastor Mark at [email protected] at any time.
Continuing: Families Watching Worship Live
Thanks to those who have sent in pictures of your families watching Sunday Live Worship. Please continue to send these in. We want to be able to share them as the announcement slides are presented at the beginning of our worship broadcast. This gives us an opportunity to see our worshipping community! Please send your pictures to Pastor Mark at [email protected].
