Easter People

April 11, 2012

We are an Easter People! This past Sunday – April 8, 2012, Easter Day – United Methodists gathered in churches and elsewhere to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Bridges Circuit 11 (Sacramento) and Temple United Methodist Church in San Francisco (in Bridges Circuit 1) celebrated their first-ever sunrise services, and each sent a photo to the California-Nevada Annual Conference Communications Office. We decided to create a photo gallery on the cnumc.org website to share them, and images of other UMC Easter services.
Temple pastor, the Rev. Schuyler Rhodes, wrote, "43 folks braved the moonlit dawn at 6 a.m. on Ocean Beach. It was powerful and beautiful."
We think you'll agree! Check out the new photo gallery, 2012 Easter – and please help us add to the gallery, too: Send photos of your church's Easter service to catem@calnevumc.org or janeh@calnevumc.org.
