 PALM SUNDAY — March 25th at 11am

On this day, we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem for the Passover and wave palm branches just as Jesus’ first followers waved them upon his entry.  Palm Sunday begins our observance of Holy Week.

 MAUNDY THURSDAY — March 29th at 6pm

We will gather at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Sedro-Woolley at 6:00pm for a Middle Eastern themed supper, followed by a worship service at 7:00pm.  On this day, we remember Jesus’ final meal that he shared with his disciples, as well as how he humbled himself and served his disciples by washing their feet.  For this supper and service, we will join the congregations of Bethlehem Lutheran, St James Episcopal, and Bay View United Methodist Churches. Members of Central UMC are asked to bring main dishes, with a Middle Eastern theme.

 GOOD FRIDAY — March 30th at 6pm

Bay View UMC and Central UMC will gather at the Bay View church at 6:00 p.m. on Good Friday for a Tenebrae Service, or “service into darkness,” to remember Jesus’ death on the cross.

LENTEN SERMON & STUDY SERIES:  “40 Years in 40 Days”

This past Fall, we worked our way through the book of Genesis.  During the season of Lent, we will once again enter into the Hebrew stories, picking up where we left off…  With Joseph and his brothers in Egypt — although, with a new King, the Israelites are enslaved and under threat. We will be reading parts of the story of the Exodus over the next 6 weeks, following Moses and the Israelites as they make their way out of captivity in Egypt toward the Promised Land.

Join us on Sunday mornings for the Sermon Series — and on Tuesdays at 11am for Tuesday Conversations as we dive deeper into this important story and its implications for our own faith and lives.



We are so glad you’ve found us!

Central United Methodist Church is a reconciling and fully inclusive congregation. We have a theological understanding that if Jesus was about anything, he was about welcoming, embracing, healing, and loving everyone without condition.

We are committed to creating a community of grace where you feel completely welcome in your spiritual journey regardless of age, gender, status, economic condition, race, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability.

We commit ourselves to full inclusion of all persons in worship and in our ministry, working to create a church without barriers. We find all people to be of sacred worth, and welcome everyone who comes here seeking the love of God. We welcome the gay community without expectation of change.

Following the example of Jesus, we will know no circles of exclusion. We celebrate the unique way each person reveals God’s love in this world.

We work to become witnesses of love and peace for all.
