Pastor Joel invites you to the Communion table this Sunday. Have some bread and juice at hand, along with your Bible and a candle, when we celebrate Palm Sunday together online at 9am.Watch here ! (You can watch the recording using the same link)
This Sunday is Palm Sunday and everyone is invited to join the virtual parade. Download a palm leaf template and print, color, cut, and wave, or make your own creative palm leaf. Prepare one for everyone in your household and then take a selfie or group picture of you with your palms. Post your picture on your facebook profile with the hashtag #DayspringTempe.
Sadly, this year on Easter Sunday, Dayspring will not be filled with beautiful spring flowers. In previous years, flowers were given as a memorial to or in honor of a special loved one or friend or gifts could made to UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, in lieu of a flower. This year, we hope to continue this tradition. We aren't able to provide physical flowers during this time, but still hope to brighten our community with virtual flowers. We will share these gifts through lists in the Reflections weekly newsletter, on our website, and on our social media. Order here
Clear your calendars...check! Dayspring's Stay At Home Family Bingo Night via Zoom Meeting. Join our Children's Ministry on April 11 at 6:30pm for a virtual bingo game. All you need is a computer, smartphone, or tablet with a camera. RSVP to Emily for the link or if you have any questions.

If you've never experienced the spiritual practice of lectio divina (or even if you have), take 15 minutes for quiet reflection with Pastor Shirley:
We are living in unusual times and it is hard to stay connected with one another. However, Dayspring wants to stay connected with you. In the coming days volunteers from Dayspring will be calling Dayspring families on a weekly basis to check-in, to see how you are doing and asking if you have any prayer requests. We will also be asking if you have an emergency contact number that you would like to share with the church and if you have any emergency management training that could be used if needed. We are so thankful to have over 50 persons who have volunteered to be “Care Callers.” Please note that Care Callers will not be asking for financial information, please do not give out.
