First Kids … Where God’s Kids Come First!
You and your family are invited to join us this this week for several First UMC Sealy Holy Week Worship Services.
- Good Friday Prayer Vigil (come and go prayer starting at 6 pm) – One of the most solemn Holy Days within the life of the church. On this day, we witness our Lord’s unchanging love for us as He willingly gives His life for our sake. This Good Friday, we’ll observe the ancient tradition of watching over the Lord’s tomb, remembering His sufferings and death for our salvation. We will begin this sacred watch at 6 pm and end at 10 pm, but you are encouraged to carry it forth as you go to our own homes, mindful through the night of Christ’s saving act of grace for us.
- Sunrise Service, Sunday at 7 am – Our very own Pastor Curtis deliver the sermon at this year’s 76th Annual Easter Sunrise Service in the Stephen F. Austin Historical Park. (The park is located next to the Brazos River Bridge on FM 1458 in San Felipe.) Since 1940 an Easter sunrise service has been held at the park, sponsored by our friends at San Felipe UMC. Ministers from San Felipe, Bellville, Pattison, Brookshire and other surrounding areas participate in this celebration. It is for all Christians. ALL are invited to attend this beautiful and moving worship service!
- FUMC Easter Service, Sunday at 10 am – Celebrate the Good News of the empty tomb at FUMC Sealy. Plan now to bring cut flowers to flower our Easter Cross.(Childcare IS provided.)
