Dear Members, Visitors, and Friends of the Congregation,

           Next week is Holy Week and here’s the schedule of services:

Palm Sunday, March 28, 10:00 AM

                     (Weather permitting, we will begin outside with the Procession of Palms)

Maundy Thursday, April 1, Noon

                      (We will have only one service – Parking Lot Communion)

Good Friday, April 2, Noon

                        (This will be a solemn service held in the sanctuary)

Easter Morning, April 4, 10:00 AM

                        (We will celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord with a joyous service followed by coffee and donuts and a chance to actually talk with one another!)

Even though nearly every member has been vaccinated, we will continue to follow CDC guidelines and ask that you wear masks and practice social distancing. We hope that this will make you feel comfortable enough to attend the services.

          The attached prayer, which I will pray during our Mid-week Lenten Service tonight, March 24, at 7:00 PM, may be too tied to me to be of much use to you, but I hope not. It could have just as well have been about a good book read, a good movie seen, a good song heard – also ways God comes to us, speaks to us, returns us to him and what we need after a year like we’ve had.

          May we see the grace and presence of God in everyday things and ordinary days and lift up our hearts in hope,

Pastor Halenza
