~Psalm Sunday~
Liturgy of the Psalms - 11 a.m. Service
Sermon Text: Mark 11:1-11 NRSV
Sermon Title: "There is a need"
11 When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples 2 and said to them, “Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it. 3 If anyone says to you,
‘Why are you doing this?’ just say this, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.’” 4 They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it, 5 some of the bystanders said to them,
“What are you doing, untying the colt?” 6 They told them what Jesus had said;
and they allowed them to take it. 7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields.
9 Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting,

“Hosanna!
    Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
10   Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

11 Then he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple; and when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

Special Music     # 211 Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley
Andy Askew, harmonica; Alicia Reid, soprano

Closing Near the Cross vs. 1+3
1 Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain;
Free to all, a healing stream,
Flows from Calv'ry's mountain.

3 Near the cross! O lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day
With its shadow o'er me. [Refrain]

Refrain:
In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever,
Till my ransomed soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.

Postlude        In the Cross of Christ I Glory
arr. by John Carter 
Please find the prayer list below,
and sincerely pray for ALL of God's creation.

PRAYER HAS DIVINE POWER TO DEMOLISH STRONGHOLDS.

"4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up
against the knowledge of God,
and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
2 Corinthians 10: 4-5

Proverbs 19:17
Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will reward them for what they have done.

Proverbs 31:8-9
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Crisis Control Ministry
My fellow Christians,

Hi, Fellow Christians! The month of March holds the promise of Spring! I love this time of year with all the warm weather, birds testing their voices for song, early flowers beginning to raise their heads, and so many other things to enjoy. I would love to think that life for all of us would get better with all the positives that will surround us. Sadly though, everyday life will remain the same for most of us. The need for food will continue. This folks, is what Crisis Control Ministry does in Forsyth County for those who cannot do for themselves. The food items we collect every month go a long way in helping those who are in need. INSTANT GRITS is the food Crisis Control Ministry needs to help fill their pantry shelves. When you are at your favorite grocer, please purchase this food staple for others. Bring your contribution to the church between 9 and 1 Mon-Friday and place them in the white bin in the Lobby of the Administrative Wing. I know you will have a “spring” in your step upon leaving!
