In April, we celebrate the good news that Christ Has Risen as we go about our daily lives and encounter His presence along the way!  During this month, some of our regularly scheduled programming will take a short break.

We Have Seen the Risen Lord

Sunday, April 7th - 10:45 A.M. Worship

At Blooming Grove United Methodist

  • Join us for “We Have Seen the Risen Lord”, a worship service created and led by the people of BGUMC, including both children and adults.  

  • This is a re-telling - through short-short stories, action, and song – of all the people who saw Jesus after he came back from the dead!  Their fear and doubt are overcome by Christ’s appearance in their lives as the Son of God, Messiah, and Lord.  As with Thomas, Christ appeared again and again so that his friends could see, and seeing believe, and believing have faith.  Keep your eyes open for jars of spices, walking sticks, sandals, and fishing nets!
