United Methodist Church of Queensbury’s Spirited Players present “The Passion of Mary” directed by Robin Miller on Good Friday, April 3rd at 7pm in Clark Hall. First performed four years ago with the Rev. Meredith Vanderminden portraying Mary, the play details Mary’s journey through life with her Son, Jesus Christ, and ultimately his death and resurrection. Robin was inspired to direct “The Passion of Mary” after the concept came to her in a dream. With the help of Rev. Meredith, the two of them crafted the script.
In this year’s depiction, Lori Shaver gives a heart-wrenching performance as Mary, and though the story is familiar, this rendition promises to have some powerful surprises and the audience will recall with passion the greatest sacrifice in human history.
Come join the Nurture Committee in Clark Hall as we once again host brunch on Palm Sunday, March 29, between the morning services, from 9:30 to 10:20 a.m.
March 11th @ Noon all are invited to gather for some food and fun! Bring a lunchy kind of dish to pass and we’ll play some bingo just for fun like good Methodists should!

Mission Outreach welcomes you to participate in the annual fundraiser benefiting Heifer Project International (HPI). Bring your coins & other donations between March 8 and Easter Sunday. The Sunday School will lead us in a Heifer Market educational opportunity (more details forthcoming). Join us to watch a video in Clark Hall during coffee hour, explaining what HPI believes:
“Nearly 870 million people around the world don’t have enough food to eat. This is unacceptable. Unthinkable. But we believe that together we can transform our futures.We believe in change.With the right tools, training, animals, care for the earth, we can enable smallholder farmers to change their lives, unite communities, transform economies. We believe all people deserve dignity, opportunity, a future without hunger and poverty And by transforming our minds, we transform our world. That means a family fed, a child educated, an earth preserved. When we pass on a gift, 102.5 million gifted become givers. Believe in an end to hunger and poverty. When I take your hand, it’s not for a handout. It’s so we can walk together.” — Heifer Project International
A Musical For Young Voices “Rescue in the Night”
The Story of Daniel in the Lions’ Den – words and music by Tom S. Long and Allen Pote.
All children from grades 1 through 8 are invited to join in the fun! Cast includes the modest, sincere Daniel, comic King Darius, the conniving advisors, heralds, and…of course, lions!
Dialogue and music are skillfully geared to this age group! It is “a light-hearted, but faithful rendition of the Biblical story of courage and obedience.”
Please Join Carol Ann in the Sanctuary on Sunday, March 8th, from 11:45-12:15 for an informational meeting. Rehearsal schedules, volunteer needs, casting and more will be discussed. We will present “Daniel..” in both services on Sunday, May 31st.
Hope to see you there!
