Boonton UMC 


April 24, 2022
Second Sunday of Easter

Sunday worship at 11:15am -
In-Person and on YouTube
Boonton UMC: A fun, musical, relevant, relational, and compassionate church
where people find hope, healing, and wholeness.
There is a time for every season under heaven. Some seasons may be filled with sorrow, some may be filled with joy, and Ecclesiastes 3 has a whole list of things we might experience at different seasons of our life.

This week, as we continue into the Easter season, we are inviting everyone, whatever the realities or circumstances around you, to take time to breathe deeply, laugh, dance, and find joy in our God who is with us in every season.

Join us as we continue to revel in the reality of the resurrection with a very joy-filled and musical service this Sunday.


Whether in-person or on YouTube,
 we look forward to seeing you at 11:15am Sunday!

Special Sunday School Announcement

Our Sunday School has been working on an exciting bulletin board project. Be sure to check it out in the narthex before leaving church this Sunday!
Hungry to Whole
 

Inspired by “The Daniel Plan” book and John Wesley’s Holy Clubs, Hungry to Whole is grounded in Psalm 107:9 – “God satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things” (NIV). Our prayer is that those who come hungry each week would leave whole in more than one way.
