What does
ASCENSION mean?

Let's get UP and move together!
The Deep Blue video for this week is Spring 2020 E13: Paul Escapes
Read the Bible story here:
Paul goes from hunting and hurting the followers of Jesus to being one of the best-known followers himself. In this story friends of Paul help him escape in a unique way! Parents: when the Bible refers to "the Jews" as it does in this passage, a better reading is "the Jewish leaders". Paul was a Jew, as were Jesus and most of the early Christians. Jewish people presented as "bad guys" is one reason why antisemitism was and is so prevalent in "Christian" cultures. It is important that we are alert to that, when teaching our children about Christian heritage and beliefs.
We continue to worship together separately online each Sunday.
This week's Children's Moment with Charlie and Rebecca explores "Ascension" in a unique way.
Visit the University UMC YouTube channel to watch the May 24 service at 10am, and to see all the past services too.
