From the Pastor's Desk 4/9/2022
We are diving into Holy Week with a Palm Sunday Potluck celebration this week. I've heard lots of excitement around this event, and I want you to know it isn't too late to invite someone to come to church with you this Sunday - just remember we worship at 10:30 (not the usual 9:30) AM! Be sure to bring enough food for you and your guest(s), so no one goes away hungry.
Luke's version of the Procession into Jerusalem is quite a bit different from the other gospels. Come prepared to be surprised! Come prepared to have your heart unbound as we hear an unusual take on a familiar story.
Plan now to join us for Maundy Thursday Communion in Fellowship Hall at 7 PM, and Good Friday Tenebrae at 7 PM in the sanctuary. As I often say, you can't get to Resurrection glory unless you go through Good Friday sorrow.
Children (ages 0-11) are welcome to an Easter Egg Hunt after 9:30 AM worship on Easter Sunday, hosted by the Confirmation Class! Beginning with Easter Sunday, we will livestream our Sunday service on the church Facebook page, and then broadcast that service the following Sunday on WRAC-TV. You can access the Facebook livestream even if you do not have a Facebook account. We want to stay connected to you, however you worship with us, so be sure to text in when prompted in the video!
Be sure to follow the daily Holy Week devotions that will be posted on this blog beginning Palm Sunday. May Christ's deep love for you be made evident throughout this week!
See you in church, Church!
Pastor Jo Anne
