TIBBETTS UNITED METHODIST CHURCH (3940 41st SW; WSB sponsor)

Easter Sunday – April 1

8:30 – 9 am – Easter Meditative Service, Parlor
Start your Easter Sunday with a Meditative Service, starting at 8:30am. Follow the signs to the Parlor as you enter the front of the church on 41st Avenue. It will be a time of meditation and prayer, readings, and music, lasting 30 minutes. We will be done by 9 a.m., so you have time to get to the Youth-sponsored Pancake Breakfast, Easter brunch, the 10am worship service, or other Easter activities. We hope you will come and find this time of slowing down to be with yourself, others, and God. There will be coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and treats available.
