SWEETEST GRATITUDE FOR OUR ‘FILL THE BOX’ REPLENISH RESTORE EASTER FOOD DRIVE
Thank you for your generous donations to SSUMC’s Easter Replenish Restore! Our church delivered a trailer full of food to our ministry partners at Riverview First UMC earlier this week. Restore Volunteers told us they ‘count on’ the faithfulness of South Shore’s generosity as we join them in responding to and alleviating food insecurities in our community.
What a witness of being the Church. Through our congregation’s support of Restore, we proclaim loudly, “We have seen the Lord!” Thank you, dear friends!
LITURGICAL COLOR: WHITE
The paraments – the cloths on the cross and pulpit – are now white signifying we are in the Season of Easter. Easter is a 50-day season that begins at the conclusion of the Easter Vigil and continues until the celebration of Pentecost. In the Early Church the Season of Easter was a time to continue the celebration of the resurrection as new believers (or converts) to the faith continued their individual faith formation, which will be united in communal faith formation through the birth of the church celebrated at Pentecost.
