Holy Week Special Activities
Holy Week Worship Kits

Holy Week Worship Kits will be available for curbside pick-up at the church facility (300 San Fernando St.) on Saturday, April 4 from 9:00 - 11:00 AM and from 12:30-2:00 PM on Palm Sunday, April 5.  

  We will provide extra kits to be taken to others within the church family.
Palm Sunday

Worship will be offered online at 9:30 AM in Spanish and at 11:00 AM in English.  Let us sing "Hosanna!" as we celebrate Jesus together with palms!  Several of our members have submitted "worship offering" videos!
Daily Devotions and Object Lessons

Each day of Holy Week, special devotions will use scripture and ordinary items to relate the story of Holy Week and the journey of Jesus through his Passion.  Instructions and a guide will be included in your worship kit with a video resource on our YouTube channel.
Maundy Thursday Agape Feast

We invite you to join via ZOOM to share a community dinner and love feast at 6:00 P.M. hosted from the Feagins' residence.  Install ZOOM on your smart device, tablet, or computer, then click on the link below at the time indicated to be included.  Love Feasts, an ancient tradition of Christianity, share water and bread rather than the wine and bread of Holy Communion.  (Communion will be shared on Easter Sunday.)  After this 30 minute liturgy, we will disconnect and participants can enjoy a meal in their own home.


John Feagins is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Good Friday

On Good Friday, a special video presentation featuring several pastors affiliated with La Trinidad UMC will be uploaded on the theme of the Seven Last Words of Christ.  Many thanks to our pastors for preparing these meditations!

Sunrise Selfies

We are glad you view us online but we want to see you, too!  Please email us your individual or family Easter portraits or "Sunrise-Selfie" pictures by noon on Saturday, April 11, 2020 if you would like your photos included (without names) in a special "Sunrise Selfie" Slideshow to be broadcast as part of an 8:00 AM "Sunrise" service on Easter morning.  We will also share this slideshow to our church website.  

We have been informed that UM Communications out of Nashville, TN is taking this idea denomination-wide, for a global UMC slideshow!!

Easter Sunday Communion Service

With communion elements consecrated and distributed in the worship kits, we will celebrate Holy Communion together at 9:30 AM and at 11:00 AM on Easter Sunday morning.  Please retain the communion elements in your worship kit for this special service.
Prayer Requests
We encourage you to send in prayer requests to be included in our live worship broadcast.  These can be sent by text message to Pastor Raquel's cell phone (210) 445-6706, or to her email at  Please consider sending these prior to the service so they can be more easily noted and shared.  Some details of concerns may be generalized to respect the privacy of those receiving prayer.

Please feel free to contact either of our pastors throughout the week as needs arise, especially if there is a report of hospitalization or illness.  

Rev. John Feagins   (210) 326-4996
