Welcoming all to experience, connect, grow and share the love and hope of Christ

easter experience

Join us for a "Walkthrough Easter Experience" with kid-friendly scenes of the Easter story, followed by a cook-out and Easter Egg Hunt for children and their families!

“When Something New Emerges”

I closed last week’s 10:30 Service with an old adage that in the days of Sunday night services and midweek prayer meetings that pastors would joke, “If you come to church on Sunday morning it means you love your church, if you come on Sunday night then it means you love your pastor, and if you show up for midweek prayer it means you love God!” I hope that you love all three! Well, I could go either way on whether you love the pastor or not, but you get the point… All of this is to say that if you love THIS church then I hope that you will be here on Sunday. It will be an important message about how the seasons of Lent and Easter pertain to our season of life as a church, as we look ahead to what new life might be on the horizon for us. 


Keep in mind that Holy Week starts on March 25th, and we hope that you will be a part of the festivities:

  • Easter Experience, Cookout and Egg Hunt on March 25th – On Palm Sunday evening, we will have a walk through Easter experience for children and their families that dramatically portrays several key scenes of Holy Week. Following the walk through experience, we will enjoy a cookout and an egg hunt. The event starts at 5pm, and is a great event to invite young families to attend. ***Important – we are in need of stuffed plastic eggs for the egg hunt. Please avoid chocolate, but drop off other candied plastic eggs at the church office between now and March 25th.***
  • Maundy Thursday & Good Friday – This year for Maundy Thursday (March 29th) we are going to enjoy a dinner with a worship service built into it! We will symbolically move through the movements of Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples, while enjoying some music, reflection, communion and of course some great food. The following day we will have a short reflective service for Good Friday at 12pm, which will take place in New Beginnings Classroom. 
  • Easter Sunday Is April 1st! – Mark your calendars for April 1st! Celebrating the Resurrection of Our Lord is going to be a spectacular experience, and we hope all of our church family will be there for the celebration.  Anthony

Connecting Neighbors Program


"Connecting Neighbors” is UMCOR’s recently-updated program that gives congregations the tools and information they need to guide the development of their disaster-response ministries. Congregations that invest their time in “Connecting Neighbors” training are better prepared for what emergencies may come, able to draw on local resources more quickly in the wake of a disaster and more confident that United Methodists will be a resource for community recovery.

Too often we only think about disasters when they strike.  When a disaster does strike (and it will) the community turns to the church for refuge, support, comfort, and hope.  Are you prepared? The truth is, we can be preparing as individual disciples, as congregations, and as communities to prepare for and mitigate the effects of the next disaster.  

Connecting Neighbors Training Events

The Connecting Neighbors training event features a one-day training hosted by The Office of Connectional Ministries designed to equip and empower individuals and local churches to be a presence in their community (and beyond) in the event of a natural or man-made catastrophic event.

The cost is $10.00 and includes lunch and materials. For questions or additional information, contact: Allison Lindsey: allison@sgaumc.com or 888-266-7642.

"The Real Heaven--What the Bible Actually Says... What comes to your mind when you think about Heaven? Clouds? Harps? Angels? Singing? Now, honestly, does that really sound like a great way to spend eternity? The good news is, that is NOT what Heaven is like. And when you discover what really awaits you there, it will radically change your view of your future and of Heaven. In this 3 part series from Living on the Edge, Chip Ingram digs into Scripture to reveal what our heavenly home will be like, what we'll do there, what we'll experience and how we're to prepare for eternity today. Join the Seekers SS Class as we discover the amazing truth of what awaits us all in Heaven"
