“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” – John 13: 34
Friends, this verse is both our “words to remember” for April and Jesus’ invitation to us as we travel this month through the final days of Lent, into Holy Week and then Easter.
See the details of this month’s worship services below.
April 7 – Fifth Sunday of Lent. Our readings include Job 38, Mark 4: 35 – 41, and Psalm 107: 1 – 3 and 23 – 32. The sermon title is Breakthrough: Out of the Whirlwind.
April 14 – Palm Sunday. One service only, at 11 a.m. Starting with the Palm Processional, we enter Holy Week together crying Hosanna. This is the title of our reflection this morning as well, and the Scripture readings for the day are Psalm 24 and Luke 19: 28 – 40.
April 21 – Easter Sunday. One service only, at 11 a.m. The words we have been waiting all of Lent to hear are proclaimed as the service begins. Christ is Risen! Again, this is the sermon title for the day and our Scripture readings are Luke 24: 1 – 12, Isaiah 65: 18 – 25, and Psalm 118: 1 – 2 and 14 – 24.
April 28 – Second Sunday of Easter. As we remember the appearances the resurrected Christ made to his disciples, we look to where we see Jesus alive and at work today. This week, the Scripture reading is John 20: 19 – 31. The Sermon title is Peace be with You.
