At Oxford United Methodist Church, this Saturday is SUPER SATURDAY!

This means a fantastic plant sale, yard sale and chicken barbecue.

If you would like space in our parking lot for the yard sale, please call the church office.  Space is free, and tables are available to rent for $10

The chicken barbecue usually sells out, so make sure to get your tickets early by calling the church office.

And the selection of plants, including hanging baskets, and special Mother’s Day arrangements will be incredible as usual.

Last night, I was walking on the path around Crossan Park in Landenberg, and the worms were out all over the path.  Feel free to comment if my science is wrong, but I believe what happens is that the ground gets too saturated with water, that the worms have to come out.

It made me wonder:  is it always true that you can have too much of a good thing?  Is there anything you can’t ever have too much of?

Can you have too much love?

Only if you try and keep it to yourself.  After Easter and after Jesus’ ascension in heaven, we see this huge explosion in the size of the movement of people following Jesus.  I think it is because the disciples finally comprehend the volume of God’s love for them, and the outlet for that love, they recognize is other people.  They had gone underground after Jesus’s crucifixion, but now filled to overflowing with his love, they go out and cross paths with the world, to share that love and share themselves.

How filled do you feel?  Is it time to cross paths with us?

Here’s what going on at Oxford United Methodist Church this week:

Wednesday:  Spirit Bells at 4pm      Band at 4:40pm   Pizza with the neighbors at 5:20pm   Quarter Ringers at 5:45pm   Senior Choir at 7:30pm

Slowly, But Surely

Happy Easter!  We are now in the Easter Season, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.  During the Easter season, we see how the disciples came to a full understanding of Jesus as the Messiah – if you notice, they found the empty tomb puzzling, and even a little scary.  But, as Jesus appeared to them, slowly but surely all he had taught them before became clearer.

What is your understanding of Jesus Christ?  Is it clear to you how much he loves you?

Slowly, but surely, our website is moving along.  You’ll notice we added the United Methodist News Service feed, so there will always be a little something to see.

And don’t forget:  here’s our Sunday Schedule-

8:30 – Informal worship service, with Communion

9:45 – Sunday School for all ages, including adults.

10:55 – Traditional worship – this Sunday we have the hymn sing to begin the service!

Do you have plans this Sunday morning?  Come out for worship as you begin your day!

There is a community service on the green in the center of Oxford at 7:00am.

Then we have services at 8:30am  (Communion will be served) and 10:55am (Communion will be served, and our handbell choir will be playing).

Nursery care is provided for the 10:55 service.

And for the kids:  we will be having an Easter Egg Hunt during Sunday School at 9:45.

Hope to see you here!
