Entering the Passion of Jesus Study

Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week by Amy-Jill Levine
Sundays, 9:45am, March 10-April 14
Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges. In this study, Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience. Children’s activities available. Cost of Book is $13.

Sundays, 9:45am, March 10-April 14

A Case for Easter by Lee Strobel
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity. But in our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Focusing on his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history's most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. Written in a hard-hitting journalistic style, this book probes the core issues of the resurrection. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality? The evidence is in. The verdict is up to you. Children’s activities available. Cost for book is $2; study guide is $7.

Copy of Audio-Visual Worship Needs Open House

We are hosting 2 Open Houses to give you the opportunity to see what our Audio-Visual volunteer jobs entail: Sunday, February 24 at 12 noon to 1pm or Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 6-7pm. Both of these opportunities will be in the Sanctuary. If you cannot attend, you may contact Shannon Jones (Soundtech@ehumc.org), or you may contact Pastor Kim. Here is some more info: The Audio-Visual Ministry of the church is run completely by volunteers! The church is looking to expand our volunteers for the various A/V needs that we have (ex. worship services, funerals, weddings: mainly Sundays, but other days as needed.) We offer on the job training, and, for some of our needs, you only have to be able to follow along and click a button on the computer. We also have more technical work that involves creating visual presentations or sound mixing. While most of these are volunteer, there is an occasional opportunity for an honorarium.
