Easter Flowers
to Honor or Memorialize Your Loved Ones
We invite you to purchase colorful potted Easter Begonias through the church. Please complete a form, found throughout the church, to purchase flowers or make a donation in memory or in honor of a loved one. Return your completed forms and payment to the church office during business hours or put it in Sunday's offering plate.

The cost is $15 each and the deadline is Wednesday, April 17 at Wednesday Night Supper. We have about seven flowers still available.

NOTE: Only the first 25 flower orders will receive a begonia to take home, however, any orders after that WILL be included on the dedication list.
 
Dear Church Family,

“The lord is my Shepard, I shall not want.”

As I emailed earlier, Mrs. Sue McDaniel died on Saturday April 6. She died peacefully, at home, at the age of 102. Throughout her life she blessed the world with her sweet and kind spirit.

Her funeral will be held on Sunday, April 14th, at 2 pm at Senoia United Methodist Church. Family will receive visitors at 1:30. There will be a brief burial following the service and a reception at Senoia UMC.

If you are able to help provide food for the reception please email Melinda Garver (jimelindag@aol.com) or Shirley Orr (shirleyworr@gmail.com).

Let us remember all of those who are grieving her loss.
Ashley


United Methodist Women Meeting and Program
April 22 at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall
Senoia UMW invites you to come on Monday evening, April 22, at 6:00 in the Fellowship Hall. We will be having a representative from The Bloom Closet in Fayetteville come speak with us about the wonderful ways they help our foster children in Georgia.



This is open to all ladies of the church. Come and join us!

Nine out of ten children removed from their homes arrive into the foster care system with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They deserve to feel and look like the best child they can be.

Bloom gets to work on that immediately. That’s why The Bloom Closet was created. The Bloom Closet provides Georgia’s foster children with free clothing, shoes, baby gear, books, toys, and school supplies. Items are either new or gently used. The environment is that of a whimsical children’s boutique.
At The Bloom Closet, our mission is to make foster children feel special.
Because they are!

Hope to see you all on he 22nd!!
 “Is that the cross Jesus died on?” he, a 5 year old, asked quietly, pointing to the rooftop steeple of the local Methodist Church.

************************************************
Some thoughts about this special Maundy Thursday meal:
Roast Beef (substitute for lamb): recognizes Christ as the Passover Lamb
Salad & Celery : The cooked greens and raw celery represent the bitter herbs reminiscent of the Passover meal. They symbolize the bitterness and harshness of the slavery the Hebrews endured in Egypt. At the Last Supper, they alluded to the bitter suffering Christ was about to endure on the cross.
Apple Sauce: a substitution for haroset (or charoset), a sweet, dark-colored paste made of fruits and nuts. It represents the mortar used by the Israelites while in bondage in ancient Egypt.
Pita Bread: signifies Christ’s body, which was broken on the cross. Unleavened bread is served during Passover, commemorating the Exodus out of Egypt. Since the children of Israel left Egypt hastily, they did not have time for the bread to rise, so it was made without leaven (also known as yeast).
  Grapes:  represents the wine, the blood of Christ, which was shed for the remission of sins.
