Following Christ, Nurturing Community, Seeking a Just PeaceJoin Us Sundays | Worship 9:15 | Fellowship 10:45 | Sunday School 11:15
First Mennonite Church of Champaign-Urbana is an inclusive congregation trying to follow Jesus by loving God and all our neighbors, caring for one another, and joining the struggle for justice and peace. You are invited to come walk with us!
This year the theme for Lent and Easter is Blessed Hunger, Holy Feast with a focus on confessing our need for God and reaching out to God to fill us. Each Sunday, we will reflect on ta specific question:
March 10 – Who will seek God’s hand today?
March 17 – Who will seek God’s shelter today?
March 24 – Who will ask for our thirst to be satisfied today?
March 31 – Who will answer God’s invitation today?
April 7 – Who will follow a new way today?
April 14 – (Palm Sunday) Who will find comfort in love today?
April 21 – (Easter) Who will see Christ with us today?
