Share Resurrection Sunday with a Friend
This year, the state of the world will prevent us from congregating in-person as we usually do for Easter — but that doesn't stop our worship! On Easter Sunday, we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ together. Join us on Sunday at 9:15am via live stream to worship our risen Savior. You can join via the Ben Hill webpage, app, and Facebook page. Share the link with a friend and invite them to worship with you.
We will see you there!
Tune into the Seven Last Words Service Tonight
Join us tonight at 7pm EST for the Seven Last Words Service. It will be live streamed on the website, app, and Facebook.
Outreach Ministry
In the mist of the COVID-19, Ben Hill UMC continued in our outreach efforts with Trinity Feeding. We were unable to provide a hot meal as usual, but instead last Sunday, April 5, 2020 the Outreach Ministry provided 275 Grab and Go Meals that included enough food for two meals and two snacks. We are thankful to the many members who volunteered, whether it was shopping online, shopping in person or actual preparation and distribution of the bags. We had many barriers with food being scarce and limits on quantities that could be purchased, but God made a way. Glory to God!

Virtual Easter Egg Hunt
Even though we won't be gathering for our annual Easter Egg Hunt, we will still have a virtual Easter Egg Hunt during Holy Week. Beginning Sunday, April 5th through Saturday, April 11th, children will have the chance to win prizes by visiting our church website and finding hidden Easter eggs throughout the site. Find the final egg and your name will be entered into a drawing for a fun prize. Prizes are restricted to children ages 2-12 years old.
Youth Birthday Celebration
The youth ministry will host a virtual birthday party for the youth whose birthdays were in March and April. Save the date for Sunday, April 19 at 2:00pm . The Zoom link will be emailed to all youth. If you are interested in participating and are not included on the mailing list, please contact Rev. Pollard at epollard@benhillumc.org.
