Worship with us this Sunday!
Worship with us at 10am or anytime later… on this Sixth Sunday of Lent - Palm Sunday! This service will be on YouTube. Our scriptures will be  
Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29…God’s steadfast love; blessed is the one who comes in God’s name! and Mark 11:1-11… The story of the people rolling out their version of a red carpet for Jesus as he enters the city of Jerusalem.

Let’s use our hands for good—applaud, make music, lift each other up, write letters, make phone calls to tell others about what it means that this expression of God is entering in. What did Jesus see when he came into the city and into the Temple? What do you see?

Livestream worship on designated Sundays. Look under videos for previous livestreamed services.

We will take a look at Exodus 12… Passover guidance on celebrating.

Prepare your simple communion meal for home.

We will share a mix of scripture, poetry, organ and silence to mark this dreadful day of crucifixion.

Listen to varied expressions of the Easter story. How did that huge stone get rolled away from the tomb? Do we have the strength and spirit to do things like that?

Humor
One Palm Sunday, a child had a sore throat and had to stay home from church with a sitter. When the rest of the family came home, they were carrying palm branches. The child asked what they were for.
They told them that people held them over Jesus’ head when he walked by.

In a sad, disappointed voice, the child said, “Wouldn’t you know it? The one Sunday I miss, Jesus shows up!”
