LENT 2024

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begin on Ash Wednesday and will end on Holy Saturday.  The Lenten season is traditionally marked by fasting, repentance, and preparation for the coming of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, we as Christians are replicating Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. 

For more information regarding our Lenten Journey for 2024, take a look below.

  • Palm Sunday - March 24th

    The ROCK@5 Children's Choir will sing at the 11:00 service.

  • Good Friday Evening Cantata, March 29, 2024 | 7:00pm

    Chancel Choir joins 1st United Methodist Church of High Point Chancel Choir to present an evening Easter Cantata, "We Were There" - Friday, March 29th at 7:00pm

    On Good Friday, the JUMC Chancel Choir will join with the Chancel Choir of First United Methodist Church in High Point and present “We Were There” by Pepper Choplin.  The concert will take place in the historic sanctuary of First UMC and will include a full orchestra.  You may recall that the choir from First UMC joined us this past November for our Hanging of Greens service.  It’s our turn to return the favor and to affirm and celebrate the connections that bind our congregations.

    “We Were There” is a dramatic choral work, that helps us experience the cross through the eyes of those who were there with Jesus: John, Jesus’ mother Mary, and Mary Magdalene.  The cantata features a combination of arrangements of existing melodies and several original compositions; all artfully presented in such a way as to put the listener with the crowd gathered at the foot of the cross.  In doing so we find our Lord, who experienced all our sorrows and suffering, but through His resurrection offers us the miracle of hope and life.

    We would like to encourage the members of Jamestown UMC to put March 29 at 7:00pm on your calendars!  No tickets are needed.  This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family to come and experience such a poignant and moving cantata, sung by a huge, combined choir and accompanied by a professional orchestra.  

  • Maundy Thursday Service - Thursday, March 28th

    Service at 7:00pm
