Maundy Thursday

Thursday, April 14, 2022 at 6:30pm

Image result for maundy thursday clipart     On Maundy Thursday Jesus gathered with the disciples for the Feast of Passover.  They shared in a meal.  He took bread, blessed it and broke it, and instituted the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion).  He then took his disciples to a garden to pray, where he was betrayed and crucified.
     On Thursday, April 14 at 6:30pm, we will begin worship in the Fellowship Hall at table with one another.  We will have a free light meal and communion.  Then we will process to the sanctuary for Tenebrae - the service of shadows - where we will pray, hear the last words of Christ, and strip the altar in preparation of his crucifixion, as the sanctuary slowly becomes shrouded in darkness.
     We hope you will join us for this meaningfully spiritual service.

     The meal is provided by the church; there is no charge for the meal, and there is no need to bring any food along with you.  As always, visitors, friends, and members are all equally welcome.

     (Please note, with having Tenebrae included in our Maundy Thursday worship service, we will not be having a separate Good Friday worship service).

     Due to the logistics of starting in the fellowship hall and moving to the sanctuary, this worship service will be live only.  However, we will reply last year's virtual worship service on our YouTube Live Stream & Phone Stream, so that those remaining at home may still participate in the scripture lessons, music, and worship of Maundy Thursday.

Holy Humor Sunday - Good News

2nd Sunday of Easter

Sunday, April 24, 2022 at 10:15am

Virtual ONLY: Live StreamPhone StreamFacebook Live & Zoom

DSCN2459 StC     In the midst of all the bad news we've heard and seen in the media over the past couple of years, and especially in the past few months, we could all use some "Good News."  And, that is what Jesus brings us -- Good News!

     Each year we pick a different theme and this year's Holy Humor theme will be "Good News."  As always we will have humor during worship, as well as activities for youth.  You are invited to come dressed for the theme in what good news means for you.  Perhaps that is: necktie or t-shirt with your kids or grandkids, it's good news to hear of their birth; or a t-shirt with your favorite rock band, it's good news when they have a concert; or a favorite sports team jersey, it's good news when they win; shirt representing a favorite activity, it's good news when the weather is right for golf, camping, hiking, fishing, playing tennis, gardening, going for a bike ride, etc.; or a tie or t-shirt about your Christian faith, sharing the Good News of Jesus.

     Come and hear a message about the Good News that Christ brings to all of humanity.

 

RisenChristBySea 2What is Holy Humor Sunday?

     Holy Humor Sunday is an opportunity to let our hair down - way down - with a very upbeat and fun service, following the somber season of Lent.  It is a day of humor and light-hearted fun. 

     Holy Humor Sunday shares its roots with that of April Fool’s Day.  When Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, he defeated death, and in doing so the Great Deceiver (i.e. the Devil) was deceived - bested by the best trick ever.  From deceiving the Great Deceiver on Easter, April Fool’s Day came to be celebrated on April 1st, and Holy Humor Sunday came to be most commonly celebrated on the Sunday following Easter Sunday.
     This ancient Easter custom was begun by the Greeks in the early centuries of Christianity.  For centuries Holy Humor Sunday has been celebrated by Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant countries going by a variety of names, including "Bright Sunday" (the Sunday after Easter) and “days of joy and laughter” with parties and picnics the week after Easter to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.  Churchgoers and pastors played practical jokes on each other, drenched each other with water, told jokes, sang, and danced.
     The custom was written about by early church theologians, including Augustine, Gregory of Nyssa, and John Chrysostom.  These theologians called it “Risus paschalis - the Easter laugh,” referring to God playing a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead.
     The custom began to fade by the mid 1900s in many churches.  In 1988 the Fellowship of Merry Christians, which bi-monthly publishes The Joyful Noiseletter, began to encourage churches to resurrect “Bright Sunday” celebrations and to call it “Holy Humor Sunday.”  The first theme they encouraged was: “Jesus is the LIFE of the party.”  The Fellowship of Merry Christians encourages churches in general to uplift the joy and humor found in scripture and in our Christian faith.  You can learn more on their website at: https://www.joyfulnoiseletter.com/hhsunday.asp
     St. Paul’s UCC has been celebrating Holy Humor Sunday annually since 2014.  Previous themes and pictures from those worship services can be found on the “Photos” page of our website.

     The Worship Committee begins considering themes each January for the next Holy Humor Sunday, and we welcome individuals to share ideas.  For the past few years our youth group or confirmation class came up with and developed the theme

     For more information, contact any member of the Worship Committee (Terry Pastor, Chairperson) or contact the church office at 610-621-5770 or office@sprucc.org.

Ascension 003bAscension Sunday

7th Sunday of Easter

Sunday, May 29, 2022 at 10:15am

Hybrid: Live StreamPhone StreamFacebook LiveZoom& In-person

     On Sunday, May 29 we will have our annual celebration of the Ascension of Jesus Christ.
    Ascension Day is celebration of the day when Jesus took his disciples to Bethany and blessed them, as he was lifted up into heaven.  This was forty days after Easter Sunday, and ten days before Pentecost.  After Jesus was lifted into heaven, the disciples gathered in worship with great joy!  This was the last day that Jesus would be physically walking the earth with his disciples, and we are reminded in this scripture by two men in white robes (presumably angels) that Jesus would in the future return in the same way in which he was seen going into heaven.
    The Ascension Sunday worship service includes the ceremony of extinguishing the Paschal Candle, which has been lit every Sunday during the season of Easter, symbolizing that Jesus is no longer physically present with us, for he has ascended!  From Pentecost through Epiphany, the Paschal Candle will be placed near the baptismal font, symbolizing that it is through our baptism that we ascend with Christ.  During the rest of the church year, we will only be lighting the Paschal Candle for baptisms and funerals/memorials, as a part of that symbolism of ascending with Christ at the time of our earthly death, through our baptism.
    We will also be sharing in pew communion together, gathering together as one body, as the disciples did on that day of Ascension.
    This is an important day for all of the disciples of Christ to gather together as one body.  For it is a day that we show one another our mutual support, and our life together as the Body of Christ here on earth, now that he has Ascended.  It is important for us to follow the example of those first disciples, and gather, worship, pray, and fellowship together on this day to prepare for the Holy Spirit coming into our lives.  It is also important for us to gather together and be centered on the Spirit, for as we are about to enter the longest season of the church (Pentecost), the Holy Spirit is about to send us out into the world in mission and ministry, and we need the strength of the Spirit and the support of one another to faithfully live out God’s calling in that season.
    We hope for all to gather together in worship, praise, prayer, and fellowship, as we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord! Alleluia!

Pennsylvania Southeast Conference Annual Spring Meeting

Friday, June 3, 2022, 9:00am - Saturday, June 4, 2022, 5:30pm

     “Living the Jesus Life — Contemplatives in Action” is the theme of this year’s Annual Spring Conference meeting to be held at West Chester University.  We will meet in person for a time of soulful recovery and revival amid the exhaustion created by the pandemic and the new realities to which we’ve had to adapt.  Spiritual practices (prayer, meditation, scripture study) and active living (ministering to the needs of our communities) unite us for a weekend of living together the Jesus life.

     As Conference Minister Bill Worley says, "Living the Jesus Life is simply about joining with Jesus’ teaching, healing, and solidarity with others in a life of prayer, worship, and intimate experiences of the Holy.  Jesus often went away from the busyness of the crowds to be at one with God.  This enabled his public witness, formed disciples, created inclusive community, exemplified self-giving love, and nonviolent resistance.  His life of integrated contemplation and action is the model for our living and our Annual Meeting.  Spiritual practices (prayer, meditation, scripture study) and active living (ministering to the needs of our communities) unite us for a weekend of living together the Jesus life."

     It was on the 50th day after Easter when the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles as they were praying together.  They received the Spirit's gift of speaking in various languages (tongues), and they immediately began preaching about Jesus Christ to the Jewish people who had gathered in masses  in Jerusalem from all over the world.  The crowds were in the city for the Feast of Shavuot.
