Thanks to Rita Cribbs who has agreed to coordinate our 2014 Springfest. Our annual day of fun, fundraising and fellowship has been scheduled for May 3.
Remember to bring those  garage sale items early. If you can be available to price items, organize donations, etc. please let Rita know. We also need to provide some large paper bags (or plastic leaf bags) to store donated clothing, some regular grocery paper sacks and plastic grocery sacks for use the day of the event.
Our choir will again sell kolaches, juice and coffee for  breakfast and brisket sandwiches and baked potatoes for lunch.

"The Big Fish"

Every year we look forward to the outstanding performance of our children and youth. This year, the Cherub and Wesley Choirs will sing us another Bible adventure on Sunday, May 18 at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary. The offering will be used to help with choir clinic expenses.
A special thanks to Joyce Elliott for her leadership in one of our favorite presentations of the year.



Read a message from the mission field as Umba and Ngoy Kalangwa share news of their ministry with us.

And watch for an announcement about their upcoming visit to Sunset UMC. 












2014 presents a new challenge as we look for "500 Familiar Faces in New Places."  Our members and friends are asked to reach out to one another. You may know everyone in your Sunday School class, but have you met the people in the Thursday Bible Study? You may have been an active part of United Methodist Women, but have you become friends with people working in The Sunset Club with our nursing homes?


We are all challenged to become 'familiar faces in new places' - and it can happen more than once! We will track our progress on a board in the narthex where you will add your name and your new group.




   Jesus Christ is risen!

Matthew 28

The Resurrection

 1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week,

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.  2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel o

f the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.  5The

angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He

has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."  8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them.

"Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him

. 10Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to

Galilee; there they will see me."
