What’s Happening at Hanscom
Flawed but Faithful Sermon Series
Sundays through Easter
You don’t have to be perfect to journey through Lent with us at Hanscom Park church. This Lent, we are diving deep into the story of Simon Peter, one of Jesus’ closest friends and the disciple he chose to be the foundation of the church. Yet Peter was never perfect. He had doubts. He misunderstood who Jesus was and what Jesus was calling him to do. He even lost his nerve and denied Jesus – three times! But through it all, Jesus was compassionate and understanding. Jesus saw that there was more to Peter than his mistakes, and Jesus chose him to share his message of love and transformation with the world. Not perfect? Maybe God is calling you, too.
Palm Sunday / Children’s Program
Sunday, April 5
Our 10 AM Worship Service on Palm Sunday will include a special offering of drama and music from our children, as well as all the excitement of waving palms…and maybe even a donkey will show up! A community Pancake Breakfast will follow worship.
Holy Week Service
Friday, April 10
We move from the excitement of Palm Sunday toward a more contemplative Holy Week service on Friday, April 19th at 7 PM. At that service, we will imagine ourselves in the shoes of the disciples as they ate their last meal with Jesus, and as they endeavored to be faithful – and failed. Then comes Good Friday, the day when Jesus was killed by the empire. To his disciples, it looked like all was lost. The Empire had killed their leader. Evil and death seemed to have the last word.
Easter Sunday Worship
Sunday, April 12
8 AM & 10 AM
But God! God had other plans. Not even death could hold the one who was Love Incarnate. So journey to the tomb with Mary Magdalene and the other disciples on Easter Sunday (April 12th) with the expectation that God continues to do something new! Worship that day at either 8 AM or 10 AM. Celebrate the victory of hope over despair, love over hate, and life over death. We look forward to celebrating with you.
Community Easter Egg Hunt
Sunday, April 12
Hanscom Park United Methodist Church is hosting a Community Easter Egg Hunt between Easter Services. The hunt will begin on Easter Sunday (April 12th) at 9:15 AM and will be held on the playground and surrounding green space on the south side of the church. There will be eggs & candy for the kids, and coffee & doughnuts for the adults. So plan to join the fun outside, and don’t forget to invite your friends to hunt eggs and celebrate on Easter morning.
