Worship with us this Sunday
April 10, 2022 | 10:00am In-person and Facebook Live… later YouTube

Join us in the sanctuary or virtually. It’s Palm Sunday … we have arrived at Holy Week. Jesus enters the City to commemorate the Passover - when the Israelites were led out of slavery through the Red Sea toward the Promised Land. We will share a few scriptures of Jesus and others being bold – speaking up for themselves and others …
John 8:2-11 (Jesus standing up for the woman about to be harmed), Mark 2:1-12 (the four friends of the paralyzed man) and the scene where Jesus kinda loses it and starts throwing things in Matthew 21:12-13. Our Lenten theme is Jesus Does. How about you? as we look at Jesus’ life and how we can model our lives after his. We will light our Lenten Candles.

Three minutes of Palm Sunday 
Kindness might not always work – but the opposite never does. ~Larry Keene
One Palm Sunday, a little boy 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 little boy asked what they were for.
His father told him that people held them over Jesus’ head when he walked by.
In a sad, disappointed voice, the little boy said, “Wouldn’t you know it? The one Sunday I miss, Jesus shows up!”
Intertwine Interfaith Iftar Dinner 2022
As the Holy Month of Ramadan is upon us, Congregation Shaare Emeth, Parkway United Church of Christ and the Turkish American Society of Missouri invite you to attend our Intertwine Interfaith Iftar Dinner. We are so excited that this will be our very first large in-person gathering since the pandemic physically distanced us.
Iftar Dinners bring individuals from different religious and cultural communities together to learn about the significance of the month of Ramadan in Islam, engage in friendly table conversation, and break fast with an Iftar dinner. All faiths are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Iftar is the name for a community dinner held daily after sunset to mark the end of a day of fasting. Ramadan, the ninth month in the Muslim calendar, is a special time for the Muslim community. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims worldwide fast from dawn to sunset to achieve greater self-discipline, self-purification, and compassion for those less fortunate.
We hope you can join us at Shaare Emeth.
Please RSVP by April 17, 2022 using this link...
This is a free event but a $10.00 donation per person is appreciated to cover the cost of food.
