Special Service Information for Lent and Easter 2019

Beyond Worship:  “He Chose the Nails” – Max Lucado

The Beyond Worship service at Spencer is on the Max Lucado dvd series “He Chose the Nails.”  In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. The hill of the cross is rich with the gifts of God’s grace. These were gifts he didn’t have to give. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So, as we unwrap these gifts, we need to pause and listen for his voice. As we do, perhaps we will hear him whisper, “I did it just for you.”  Join us Thursdays for a light supper at 6:15pm and a casual service following at 7pm.

Holy Thursday Service, April 18th

There will be a foot-washing and Communion service at Spencer UMC at 7 pm, (in lieu of the regular Beyond Service) commemorating the night when Jesus gave himself up for us all. This is a moving service that you don’t want to miss.

Good Friday Service, April 19th, 12:00 Noon, Carnegie UMC

A short service of meditations on the Cross with sung responses. The service will be around a half-hour long and will end in silence. Recommended for seniors and others who don’t want to be out at night.

Good Friday Tenebrae Service, April 19th 7:30 pm at Spencer Church

A Baked Fish Dinner will be served at 6 pm. (Good Will Offering) RSVP to Karen Lenigan at 412-884-3214 by April 15 (for count only). A service of Scripture lessons, music, candles and darkness at 7:30 pm.
