Easter falls on April 1st this year and, of course, that is April Fool's Day - should that be telling us anything?

I think there are some who are fooled on Resurrection Sunday because they are still waiting for the one to deliver them, while for others it’s just another special Sunday in church that people show up to whom we haven’t seen since Christmas.

Easter Sunday is the special day of celebration when we do see some people who only come once or twice a year but it should truly be a day of loud celebration, for Christ has risen! He has risen indeed! We are given a chance to let others know they are missed and to invite others to a grand day in the life of the church.

We will prepare ourselves during Holy Week as we look at the last days of Christ here on earth with us: We will talk about His death and sit in the darkness on Good Friday/Tenebrae and pray. Then on Easter morning, we have sunrise service at 6:30 am and then three worship services at 8:30, 9:45 and 11:00 am. Come and join us for worship and invite your neighbors to come and celebrate the Resurrection.

Your Servant in Christ,



We will begin looking at long-range plans for FUMC Tallassee as our first project for the coming year. I am also looking at the shepherding committee—to get it back into action. I am getting really excited about what the education committee is going to do this coming year. I am also thankful for our music program, youth and children’s programs.

I believe it is going to be a great year. We have an amazing staff at FUMC Tallassee who do great minis-try and we also have some of the best volunteers from the congregation. Thanks for all that all of you do for the Church.

We still need volunteers to help this coming year. Some of you may still be wondering how you can help? Or what your gift may be? I have two websites I would like for you to look at that can help you answer those questions. They are:

Please come and talk to me about your results. I would love to help you use your gifts for the Kingdom. This is going to be a great year!
