Caption: Our Pastor Judy White is Irish and as everyone knows, we just
celebrated St. Patrick’s Day a couple of Sundays ago. Pastor Judy explained
to the children that she is “a child of Irish descent”. While each one of our
youngsters may not be Irish, they are all children of God because they were
born into the family of God. She went on to teach the children that the three
leaves on a shamrock stand for “God the Son, God the Father, and God the
Holy Spirit”.

Bluff Point UMC article for 3/27/13

Our thanks to Gail and Andy Kenneda who prepared our final
Wednesday night Lenten Supper last week. We have enjoyed a number of
delicious meals prepared by members of our church family, and we are
grateful to them for that. In these last five weeks, we have also discussed
and read and learned about our Heavenly Father, Jesus. We have walked
and eaten with Him, we have listened to Him, we have read about some of
His many miracles, and finally, we have imagined and felt, as much as we
are able, the pain, the horrors, and the humiliations that Jesus suffered until
He finally died on the cross. Fortunately for us, we know how this story,
and this week, end.

Tomorrow is March 28th, Maundy Thursday. There will be a
