"Repent" for Lent by Elaine Cho
Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, seems like it happened only a few days ago! Time flies. We are now in the season of Lent, where Christians focus on simple living, fasting and prayer to go deeper with God. Lent is the 40 days before Easter, excluding Sundays - because every Sunday is like a little Easter!

40 days without counting Sundays makes about one-tenth of a year - like a tithe of time. Lent is a great opportunity to "repent" - to return to God and re-focus our lives to be more tuned with Jesus.

Ask yourself as we Wesleyans do: "How is it with your soul?" Join us if you need a place to pray, meditate, sing and celebrate Christ's resurrection with a community of faith. Easter is Jesus Christ's victory over death and the promise of eternal life for all who believe in Him.
Revered Elaine Cho is the senior pastor of Santa Clarita United Methodist Church. 297-3783

Ready for "Messy Church?"
Come experience Messy Church at Santa Clarita UMC! Messy Church is an innovative way to experience worship through activity, music and a family meal together. No matter who you are or where you are in your spiritual journey, you have a place at our table.

Messy Church is:
a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
primarily for people who don't already belong to another form of church.
an experience that includes a long creative time to explore the Biblical theme by "getting messy" - a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and a sit-down meal together at tables.
a model for good ways of growing as a family: a nuclear family, an extended family and a global and local church family.

Exploring Faith by Nicole Reilley
Do you want a daring faith? A faith that can move mountains?
A faith that can move your life to its next level?

I know I do. I am finding that God continues to call us to take next steps in our faith and become willing to stretch beyond were we have been. We will be focusing on this together and you are invited. Join in as we explore: expecting the best, stretching our imagination, taking initiative, facing our fears and believing while we are waiting. Join us Sundays at 9am and 10:30am.

Join us Easter Sunday - April 21 - as we gather at 8:30am, 9:45am and 11am. We will celebrate the risen Christ with music, drama and an inspirational message. Easter is the highpoint of our year as we celebrate what God has done in Jesus and why he matters more than ever.
