Eastertide Greetings Memorial Family – Now if you’re wondering at me sending you Eastertide Greetings, I’m happy to satisfy your curiosity.  As a Resurrection/Easter people, we celebrate Easter every day, but that season between Easter Sunday and Pentecost Sunday is called Eastertide, and it’s a season of focusing on the meaning of the Resurrection for our lives. 

Here at Memorial, we are all about deepening our discipleship and growing closer to God.  So, we’ve got lots of opportunities for you to take the joy, wonder and call from God to come nearer and live that call out with several classes being offered in April.  A new sermon series begins this Sunday based on Bishop Tom Berlin’s book “The Third Day”.   A Bible study class using that book will be led by Chris Twiggs that will focus on the experiences of the first Resurrection witnesses and how their experiences relate to your own.  Want to grow your prayer life?  Pastor Charlie and Dr. Anna Wright will show you lots of ways to do just that with a class on Prayer.  And…I’m excited to offer a third class focused on deepening and broadening your understanding of our Christian and Methodist Roots.  This class will be limited to 12 participants, because its format is conversational around questions lots of people have about the Bible, what Methodists believe and the foundational concepts of the Christian faith.  It’s everything you always wanted to know about what we believe practice and why but were afraid to ask!

 Now, I hope you will pray about one of these classes that the Holy Spirit is guiding you to experience to help you becoming a more deeply rooted disciple of Jesus.  And…if you’re someone who’s been visiting Memorial and are thinking about joining the “Love Shows Up” people, a New Members Class is also beginning this month.  Whew!  That’s a lot!  But don’t be overwhelmed now – just trust the Holy Spirit to direct your steps, and don’t be shy about calling Pastor Charlie or me if you need more information to help you choose what’s right for you to take the good news of the Resurrection and apply it to your own faith journey.  But, if you’re ready to decide now, you can go to and sign up.  Don’t hesitate, participate!
