Greetings, 

        Rev. Ivy Merrill will be leading our Palm Sunday Worship Service.  We are now moving from the Fellowship Room to the Sanctuary for our 10:00 a.m. services.  The scripture readings this week will be from Psalm 118:1-2 and 19-29 and Matthew 21:1-11.  Rev. Ivy’s meditation is entitled “Palm Sunday Paradox.”  There will be the distribution of palms and very special music provided by the Handbell Choir. The Church will also be collecting a One Great Hour of Sharing offering which goes to fund needs and projects around the world.  Following the service will be a time of fellowship with coffee and light refreshments. 

            On Maundy Thursday there will be a Worship Service observing the Last Supper.  The Service will be held in the Sanctuary beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Rev. Ivy will be conducting the service which will start in candlelight and descend into darkness as the service of the Tenebrae is shared. 

            The Church will celebrate Easter with two services.  There will be a 5:30 a.m. Sunrise Service held at our home of (Roberta and Franklin Geist) at the end of Hitchcock Road.  The service is made up of readings, music and the sharing of communion. Following the service all are invited to stay for breakfast and fellowship.  Later that morning Easter will again be celebrated at our regular 10:00 a.m. service held in the Church Sanctuary and led by Rev. Ivy. 

            Hope this finds you looking forward to the sun which is expected this weekend and also that you will be able to join us in worship. 

In the Spirit,

Roberta
