Hello Monroe!

As Nolan still likes to wake up a time or two in the night to say hello to me, I don’t often willingly get up early enough to catch the sunrise. Early April ushered in some beautiful ones, and Jacki Robbins captured and shared this stunner.

Easter services

Reverend Bob Evans of the Monroe Community Church, UCC, invites any and all to the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services at 5:30 p.m., Easter Sunrise Service at 5:45 a.m. at Gesner Park in Monroe and 9 a.m. Easter service at the church. The Reverend shares, “If you are feeling empty, or have questions concerning the mystery of life, we invite you to join us while we explore the meaning of Easter, salvation and resurrection… We are an open and affirming congregation and believe in lifting each other up as we imitate what we see our God also doing.”
