This Holy Week we are concluding our journey through Lent and our travels with Jesus toward his crucifixion on what we Christians call “Good Friday.”   

Our last Holy Week observance will be Maundy Thursday tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Gathering Space.  We will share a simple meal including Holy Communion hosted by the Worship Arts Center interspersed within our worship service and a brief message as we remember Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion.

 Then on Easter Sunday our joyful worship celebration remembering Christ’s resurrection will include special choral music, welcoming new members, baptizing children, and sharing Holy Communion.  And don’t forget to bring your fish banks and other offerings for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering, which will be dedicated during our Easter worship.  This year’s goal is $1,750.

 Looking ahead, our annual GO! Sunday worship and day of service is coming up on April 28.  If you have not already, please sign up for where you’d like to serve this Sunday in the Gathering Space.

 I look forward to seeing you in and around our church as we share in mission and ministry together!

 Shalom in Christ Jesus,

 Pastor Marilyn
