Holy Week and Easter

Pastor's Post


This month, a little about three timely subjects:

First, Easter is March 31, and we will once again lead the Sunrise Service at the Sun Bowl. This is always a meaningful worship service in a very beautiful, outdoor setting (7 am; bring your own chairs). Then we will gather at United Church for our Easter Brunch Worship in the Friendship Center at 10 am. Communion will be served at both services. Please plan to attend.

Our Palm Sunday Cantata (Canticle of the Cross by Joseph M. Martin) is at 10:00 am Sunday March 24 with performers from the Phoenix Symphony. It’s sure to be a spectacular service. Again, please make plans to attend.

There are special worship events scheduled for each Sunday in March. Check out this
newsletter for details.

Next, as I have said before, I am not an advocate for giving something up during Lent, but a proponent of doing something extra. However, I saw a post on Facebook that went something like this: If you want to fast this Lent, here are some suggestions. Fast from anger, fast from pessimism, fast from worry, fast from complaining, fast from bitterness, fast from selfishness, fast from always having to be right, and fast from judging. I might add that we could also fast from Facebook.

Finally, have you seen all the movies nominated for Best Picture? I have seen some of them, but not all. I especially like “The Holdovers.” I recently watched “Killers of the Flower Moon.” It is a tremendous story, seldom told in our American history lessons, but I am not picking it for Best Picture. I imagine “Oppenheimer” will win. It is good, or at least I thought two thirds of it was very good. We will know all the winners on Sunday, March 10 when the Academy Awards are announced.

Continued best wishes for your Lenten journeys. I look forward to seeing you in worship.

Pastor Brady 

United Church of Sun City, a congregation of the United Church of Christ, has the distinction of being the first church to be established in a Del Webb retirement community. Organized in 1960, United Church has been serving Sun City and the surrounding area since at the current location of 107th Avenue and Sun City Blvd.

Today, with an atmosphere of inclusion and care and with respect for diverse theological thought, the goal of United Church is to create a church family, while nurturing individual and collective spiritual development through meaningful biblically based worship, music, education, fellowship, and involvement of members and friends. United Church strives to provide wider community service, social justice, and responsible stewardship.

Senior Pastor Rev. Brady Abel, the United Church staff, and the entire congregation extend a special invitation to everyone for Sunday worship. All are welcome!

We're a lively congregation where age is a number and life is a gift.

  • a fabulous music program
  • a varied and stimulating activities program
  • meaningful mission and creative outreach
