A WORD FROM THE RECTOR
Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the
human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to
take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross,
giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant
that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share
in his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.
 
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, 
Sunday is Palm Sunday, which begins Holy Week. Please join us in the garden before each service as we process into the church. If you cannot easily walk, go ahead into the church and wait as the rest of the congregation and choir make their way into the service. I am always struck by the power of reading the Passion Gospel together on Palm Sunday. it seems like a fitting way to begin thinking about the events of Jesus life the last few days before Good Friday. 
 
Wednesday Lenten Service
Every Wednesday during Lent, we have a brief service at noon, with a light lunch following in the Mayfield Room. Our theme this year will be Aspects of Prayer, as follows: 
April 10 - Contemplation - Psalm 27:4
April 17 - Surrender - Matthew 26:39
 
Elevator Fund
We are very close to beginning work on the lift to the second floor. Although we do not have a final price, we think that it will be between $65,000-$70,000. If you would like to donate, you may do so by check or online giving. Thank you for helping us to reach our goal of providing an easier means upstairs for those who find it challenging.
