March 30 Greetings

Dear Ones,

 

It’s Tuesday in the last week of March—Holy Week—as we continue to “Be Church Together” even as the church building is closed for gatherings. I hope you’ve been reading your daily Lenten devotion. We are in the final days of Lent as Jesus has arrived in Jerusalem and things are heating up politically. If you are having any problem with connecting with Zoom, please call the church office. We have some folks who can help with that. For the Maundy Thursday Zoom worship at 7:00 p.m., please have a candle to light and your bread or cracker and wine or grape juice to share in communion with us.

It is good to see that there are still some “normal” things happening. Sierra, a senior at Bradshaw Mountain High School, finished her last season on the women’s varsity basketball team and she did her team and family proud! As her mom Wendy posted on Facebook, Sierra has forever left her mark on Bradshaw Basketball. Sierra has been accepted at Western Washington University (her parents’ alma mater) and plans on attending in the fall. Great job, Sierra!

Holy Week at Emmanuel

Maundy Thursday: April 1 will be celebrated with a single Zoom Worship at 7:00 p.m. Join us for communion, having your own bread or cracker and wine or grape juice on hand.

 

Good Friday: April 2 will have a brief recorded online service and the sanctuary at Emmanuel will be open from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. for a walk-through meditative experience. There will be six stations telling the story of the Christ’s death. Pr. Tricia will be on hand to be help us maintain the ten-person minimum in the sanctuary.

 

Easter Sunday Morning: On April 4 there will be a single recorded worship service including our Fabulous Family Easter Pageant available online, and a 1:00 p.m. Outdoor Worship with Easter Egg Hunt!

Mary delivered our collected change to Liberty Traditional School this morning. Drum roll please…we collected $675! Our local schools have had a Change Drive instead of the annual food drive to support the Hungry Kids Project. Our Lenten Special Offerings are going to it as well. The project provides bags of food to send home to families over the weekend, and is currently serving 250 families each week. Emmanuel really knows how to step up when asked! Needless to say, the staff at LTS is ecstatic!

It was fun to have Emma and Kasey lead the Palm Sunday procession with their palms and rainbow windsocks!

A Bible verse for today:

These things I remember, as I pour out my soul: how I went with the throng, and led them in procession to the house of God, with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.

Psalm 42:4

Yours in Christ,

Pr Tricia
