Special Worship Services

Alpharetta Methodist invites you to the following worship experiences:

A Time for Healing, Renewal & Wholeness

Wednesday, March 22
5:30-8:30 p.m.
Methodist Youth Center Chapel

Spring comes and brings new life. There are blooms and warming of weather. But many of us still feel lost in the darkness and cold. During Lent, we remember that Christ came to bring new life; but His pathway went through a cross and a tomb. Resurrection does come, but it travels through the avenue of death.

During this special time of prayer, we will take time to acknowledge our pain, disappointments, and disillusionment. Participants will be invited to confess, to grieve, to rest in God’s presence, and to seek healing, restoration and new life.

 

Palm Sunday

Sunday, April 9

Join us as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the start of Holy Week. Our 11:00 traditional service will begin with a procession of palms, led by the 1st through 3rd grade children’s choirs.
