for 
April 2019
All worship services are Sunday at 9:30 a.m. 
 
 
April 7th     "The Sweet Smell of Love"     John 12:1-8
 
The passage for this Sunday is the story of Mary (sister of Martha and Lazarus) anointing the feet of Christ.  The family were long time friends with Jesus, and he had just raised Lazarus from the grave.  We will also enjoy Holy Communion together.   
 
April 14th     "Palms to Pilate"     Luke 19:28-40
 
The passage for this Sunday is on the Palm Sunday parade processes into Holy Week, the Last Supper and the Cross.  We all have such conflicting moments.
 
April 18th     Maundy Thursday Service     5:00 PM
 
Our Maundy Thursday Service will start with our Lenten Soup in Harmony Hall.  We will then move to the sanctuary for a quite service of our Lord's Last Supper.  
 
April 19th     Good Friday Service     1:00 PM
 
Join us for our Good Friday service beginning at 1:00 PM in the sanctuary.
 
April 21st    Easter Sunday     "He is Risen"     John 20:1-18
 
In our passage for this Sunday, we explore the story of the morning of the first Easter, as told by John.  Jesus meets Mary Magdalene at the tomb, and tears of grief turn to joy.  We will have a small cross on which we can put flowers from home, so bring them.   
 
April 28th     "Seeing is Believing"     Doubting Thomas
 
We are critical of the Disciple Thomas, when in fact, we all waiver which is the real translation of the Greek word that became his title.  Some things just are not fair.  We, too, have times of fear and times of faith.
 
DVD recordings of each Sunday service are available the following Tuesday through our church office. If you would like a copy, please call Judy in the church office at (951) 679-1016.
