Lenten Season - 2020

Lenten Season

You are invited to come home to Milton United Methodist Church this Lenten season.

What is Holy Week?

Holy Week is the last week of Lent, the week immediately preceding Easter or Resurrection Sunday. It is observed in many Christian churches as a time to commemorate and enact the suffering (Passion) and death of Jesus through various observances and services of worship.

Sunday Sermons

Each week during Lent, Sunday's worship will share a sermon series "Called to More: A Lenten Series on Wrestling with Sin".

When we take a step back and look at our lives, we may find ourselves wondering, "Is this really it?"  Are we just going through the motions or, perhaps worse, living in chaos?  This Lenten series explores the actions, habits and systems athat separate us from God and looks to the cross of Jesus to discover that we are called to do so much more.  The series is about our humanity and God in real time.  It's about hope!!

Also on Sundays, the choir will be bring special music and the children will be doing Lenten specific lessons.
