Easter is not cancelled -- from Magothy Church. https://www.facebook.com/magothydeafchurch/posts/10157944177384277

Good News

Easter Sunday Easter, in it's purest form is definately NOT cancelled

We might not celebrate what Easter has become in that there may be no new clothes bought for that Sunday. We might not hide and hunt eggs in mass quantities. We may not travel home to attend church with our family. We might not see some folks at our worship services that we haven’t seen since Christmas

Every time we assemble for worship we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Pilate couldn’t kill Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him. You think the Coronavirus is going to stop Easter. More people this year will hear the gospel than any other Easter before.

Easter is not just about special programs, although we will still have them at our church. It’s not about the trumpet call or the mass crowds. It’s the fact that we serve a living Savior who is still transforming lives today. Easter is not only about His resurrection, but our ability to rise with Him. Easter is about the hope of tomorrow and the gift of everlasting life. Yes indeed, we will celebrate. We’ll celebrate what God did for all of us at Calvary. How?
By remembering Him.
By loving Him.
By worshipping Him.
By praising Him.
Easter for us is everyday.
Let the celebration begin.

Sing with me (I bet you can't do it without shedding a tear):

I serve a risen Saviour, He's in the world today
I know that He is living, whatever men may say
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer
And just the time I need Him He's always near
He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Christ Jesus lives today
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life's narrow way
He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Salvation to impart
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart ❤️ !

Our Story

At the 2000 General Conference of the United Methodist Church, delegates from across our denomination accepted a recommendation from the General Board of Global Ministries’ Health and Welfare Unit to create a national steering committee to promote ministries with and for those who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Late Deafened and Deaf-Blind. Now called the United Methodist Committee on Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministries, we seek to continue our mission to make [Deaf] disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

4th Global Methodist Missions Conference of the Deaf




Dallas, TX

General information

In 1992, the General Conference of the United Methodist Church established the National Committee on Deaf Ministries as a mission initiative (renewed at the 1996 and 2000 General Conferences.) As its mission expanded to include all people with hearing loss, the committee broadened its name to reflect the diversity of the population it represents. It is now known as the United Methodist Committee on Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministries or DHM. Ten members make up the Committee as follows: two people who are Deaf, two late-deafened, two hard of hearing, one deaf-blind person, as well as one deaf institutional ministry professional, and two clergy with experience in ministry with people who are Deaf, late-deafened, hard of hearing, and deaf-blind. The Committee strives to be inclusive with regard to gender, ethnicity, jurisdiction, and different sign language and hearing abilities.
