Worship Info for 4.18.21

 Hi, Friends-This Sunday is Scout Sunday!  Yes, usually it is in February, but as things have gotten safer, Troop 514 wanted to connect with the congregation and say 'Thank you!' for being their chartering organization.  Join us for worship as the Scouts help lead the service and share their musical talents.  They will not be serving breakfast this year, but you can always give a donation to help support the troop activities.  Make checks payable to Troop 514.

Join us in person or on line.  

If you are joining us in-person, we ask that you RSVP.  We do this to help monitor our numbers and have a checklist of names.  If you wake up Sunday morning and think, I want to go to church but I didn't RSVP,  please still come!  There has been plenty of room to spread out.  Remember to wear your mask.  You can call us to RSVP at 541-963-5114 (please leave a message if we aren't there), email us, or use this handy RSVP form:  https://forms.gle/DJHar4oWKqUVWFtn6.  

You can connect online at www.facebook.com/groups/fpclagrande to watch the service live and you can use that same link to access a recording of the worship service anytime. We are also posting the videos to the church's blog after the service and is available at http://fpclagrande.blogspot.com/

Good Friday Prayer Walk/Worship Info for Easter Sunday 4.4.21

 Just a reminder that the Good Friday Prayer Station Walk starts today at noon and goes until 6PM.  Feel free to walk, drive, or bike the route. It starts at the west door of the Methodist Church.  Maps of the route are available there.  Pastor Roberta is out walking the route with her cell phone right now to make a virtual walk for those who are unable to participate in person.   We will get that link out as soon as we get it.


Join us for Easter Sunday worship in person or online at 9:30 as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus!

If you are joining us in-person, we ask that you RSVP.  We do this to help monitor our numbers and have a checklist of names.  If you wake up Sunday morning and think, I want to go to church but I didn't RSVP,  we still have space for you!  There has been plenty of room to spread out.  Remember to wear your mask.  You can call us to RSVP at 541-963-5114 (please leave a message if we aren't there), email us, or use this handy RSVP form:  https://forms.gle/DJHar4oWKqUVWFtn6.  Worship will start outside near the sanctuary entrance.  Please bring a flower to put on the Blooming Cross.  We will have extra flowers.  We will move inside after singing (with masks) and decorating the cross.

Updated Holy Week information

 Dear Church Family,


Due to a health emergency in Keith's brother's family, we need to make some adaptations to our Holy Week/Easter plan.

The Maundy Thursday service will still be held at 5PM tomorrow, April 1 via this Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86509464656?pwd=MG9ZYmo2YjNiZVFIZU9MamttZnM4dz09
If we are unable to attend, Meg Valentine will facilitate this service.

The Good Friday Stations of the Cross will still happen as planned, from 12PM-6PM. We will get more information out, such as a map, probably tomorrow.

In consultation with the Worship Committee there will not be two services. We will now have one service at our regular 9:30AM time for Easter. We don't expect the numbers of attendees to go over 50 for one service. The Easter service will start outside with singing (with masks), and please bring a flower to put on the Blooming Christmas Tree Cross. We will have extra flowers. We will move inside to continue with our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. After the service, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt for the children.

If you have not done so already, please RSVP for the Easter service. If you have already RSVP-ed, you don't need to do so again, just note the time change! You may use this form https://forms.gle/ZoCsPaU2sRuHrcMGA and we will get your name on the list. Or feel free to call the church at 541-963-5114 or reply to this email.

We apologize for whatever confusion this might have caused. We hope one service will feel more worshipful, while allowing Keith to travel sooner to be with his brother's family in Colorado. Let us know if you have any questions.

We would also appreciate if you kept Keith's brother's family in your prayers.

Blessings,
Keith and Laura

Maundy Thursday Info

 Maundy Thursday is one of my favorite moments in the Christian calendar. The name "Maundy" comes from the Latin word meaning "command," and the service is a remembrance and honoring of Jesus' "new commandment" in John 13:34-35, "love one another as I have loved you." It is also a night of remembering the first Lord's Supper. 


This year, we will host Maundy Thursday on April 1 at 5PM on Zoom. Here is the link: 
Meeting ID: 865 0946 4656
Passcode: 022553

We will read scripture, share stories, and commune in the Lord's Supper. You will need to prepare your worship space at home with bread and juice. We recommend that you print the liturgy out so that you can refer to it during the Zoom event.  Here is the link to the Maundy Thursday liturgy: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CMoyS2QKHwhI0jnpMKwYDl92nGT3SyMmkWCIZkspwTA/edit?usp=sharing

Let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you Thursday evening! 
In Christ, 
Laura and Keith
