Resurrection Sunday (April 8th) marks the beginning of the Easter Season, which lasts for 50 days until the Day of Pentecost (May 27th). It is a time for rejoicing as we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The colors in the sanctuary are white and gold, symbolizing holiness, purity, joy, royalty, and victory over death. Flowers are also used on the cross as reminders of new life. This year at Christ UMC, worship during the Easter Season will include the children leading us on April 29th, the celebration of our 25th anniversary on May 20th, and Confirmation Sunday on May 20th as well.
