Rise Against Hunger Returns!

Just 35 cents per meal during Lent or $42 dollars feeds 120 people when you give to Rise Against Hunter! This May we’re bringing back the incredible project that is Rise Against Hunger where we donate and then pack meals to be distributed this year to those in need. We’re asking that you make weekly donations. Each donation of 35 cents will provide a meal for others in need. Then Saturday May 13th, we’ll come together as a church and community to pack those meals and all volunteers will receive a CUMC hat (hats are a requirement for packing) for participating! We’ll roll out more details as the time comes, but you can start donating now through either Realm or in the offering plate, but if you place it in the offering plate, please clearly mark them as being for Rise Against Hunger.

This Sunday ...

Lenten Series: King Of The Jews
John 18: 28-38

When the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate, had Jesus crucified, he had a sign placed above the head of Jesus that read: "King of the Jews."  Was that just a taunt, or does it have a deeper, more profound significance?  How do we as modern Christians reconcile that our Lord is not just Jewish, but the King of the Jews?  As we look at the title used to mock Christ, we can see that God is redeeming even earthly attempts to humiliate our Lord by transforming a taunt into a sacred title.  Much like the first Methodists did!

Easter Flower Dedications

Dedicating Easter Flowers that adorn the altar in the sanctuary is a long-standing tradition at Crozet UMC and we're happy to bring it back this Easter season! We've got three ways you can give $20 for a dedication. You can fill out the Google Form or you can call the office during the week and we'll take your dedication over the phone. You're welcome to take home flowers after the 11 a.m. service on Easter Sunday.

Easter Sunday Breakfast!

Last year’s Easter Breakfast was an incredible time of fellowship and fun after the debut of our new sunrise service and we’re excited to bring it back this year. We plan to serve a potluck breakfast in between the Sunrise Service and the 9 a.m. Contemporary. Would you like to cook, donate food or help? Go here to Sign Up.

Spring Cleanup Event!

The Building and Grounds Small Group is leading a church-wide grounds cleanup effort with a dogs and burger cookout to follow on April 1 from 8:00 am to Noon! We’re looking for signups by Sunday March 26 so the B&G crew can assign folks to various tasks. If it rains, the cleanup moves to Saturday, April 8, the day before Easter. As it was written in Nehemiah 3, many hands make light work, so come on out, help spruce up the church and grab lunch afterwards!

To signup, either email Bart or click here for the signup genius!

Middle School Youth at the Park!

This Sunday, Middle School Youth is back in full force with Capture the Flag at Crozet Park at 5:30 p.m. with some new awesome wrinkles — this is a great chance to invite your friends!

CFG Today!

It’s Bartapalooza week at Children’s Fellowship Group with a distinctly middle school youth flair to CFG (K-5th grade) at 4 p.m. at the church! Bring your kids out and they’re sure to have a blast!

Children’s Time During Lent

During worship this Lent, the kids at Crozet UMC have been offered the chance to add something to their spiritual practice – prayer puppies! The Lentadoodle puppies handed out two weeks ago came with a prayer sheet. We’ve got those prayer sheets online now if anyone would like a new copy or if someone is participating from afar, we’ve heard some folks mailed Lentadoodles to grandchildren or nieces and nephews! It’s never too late for kids to jump in on the Lentadoodle action! You can still snag one at worship during Lent on Sundays. Just let Pastor Sarah or our communications director Bart Isley know you need one!
