Hey there, friends and family of St. Paul's!

In this Blog Post, we're going to speak about how Easter is not just about colorful eggs and chocolate bunnies, but a time of deep meaning for us as United Methodists.

History of Easter for United Methodists

Easter celebrations in the Methodist tradition go way back, with a rich history filled with meaning and significance. For us as United Methodists, Easter holds a special place in our faith, signifying renewal and rebirth. It's a time when we reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made for us and the hope that comes with the resurrection.


Renewal and Revival

Now let's talk about renewal and revival. Easter isn't just another holiday; it's a time of spiritual rejuvenation. It's like hitting the reset button and starting fresh. Easter reminds us that we have the chance to begin again, to renew our faith, and to grow closer to our Creator.


Reflection and Contemplation

During Easter, it's important to take a moment for reflection and contemplation. It's a time for looking inward, for connecting with our spiritual selves. Through prayer and meditation, we can deepen our relationship with God and gain new insights into our faith journey.


Rejoicing and Celebration

And of course, Easter is a time for joy and celebration! The Easter season is filled with hope and happiness, and as United Methodists, we embrace that joy wholeheartedly. From special services to festive gatherings, Easter is a time to spread the message of love and renewal. We hope you can join us for our Good Friday evening service and of course, Easter Sunday!
