4/4 Easter Worship Service, 6 pm

Hi Everyone, 
We hope that you are well and have the opportunity to observe Good Friday today. This day holds deep sorrow, and it provides the chance to reflect on the many innocent deaths that we have witnessed this year. Reach out if you need to process this heavy day with any of us, or join one of the services that we suggested via this blog below. For the sake of communication, we want to mention our Easter service while understanding the need to rest in emotions of Good Friday. 

Our Easter service will begin this Sunday (4/4) at 6pm on Zoom using this link http://go.umd.edu/UCML3Sundays. Join us for a time of reflection and celebratory song as we look towards the empty tomb. 
We hope to see you there!

When the hour came, he (Jesus) took his place at the table, and the apostles with him. He said to them, ‘I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I tell you, I will not it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God. Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, ‘Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.’ Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.‘ Luke 22: 14 – 20

Meeting link http://go.umd.edu/UCML3Wednesdays

This week for L3, we will be looking at the intersection of religion and science.

Join us as we explore why religion and science are often put up against each other, whether or not they are compatible, and how they play different, or similar, roles in our lives.

Also, to close out Women’s History Month we would like to highlight some women scientists who have impacted our present and those who will impact our future.

 Share your experience with science and religion or enjoy learning from others.

How has your week been? We pray that you have been able to weather the cold and that classes are going well. As always, reach out if there is anything that we can do for you. 

We are with you as our campus goes on lock down this week, due to the increase in Corona Virus cases on our campus. Our guest preacher will be focusing on what we have to look forward to after things greatly improve. In the meantime, we all need to continue with careful protocols to keep others and ourselves safe from COVID. We know this is going on so long; hang in there. This will not last forever!
