LENT 2014 WORSHIP


This Sunday is one of the more unique services of the year. We begin in celebration, anticipating the arrival of Jesus as the coming King. The people waved palm branches, a symbol of victory and triumph, in anticipation of being freed from Roman rule. When Jesus did not lead the expected revolution, they turned on Him only days later. The ckleness of loyalty to Christ did not end with those early followers of Jesus. In them we are reminded of our own challenge to be faithful to the Lord when He does not do what we want or expect. We begin the worship today in triumph and joy and gradually move this week through the sobering realization of what Christ came to do. Join us on both Thursday and Friday evenings as we make the journey from the upper room with the disciples, through the Garden of Gethsemane, through the trial, the crucixion and burial. The Passion of Christ is in three parts; Thursday, Friday, and Easter Sunday morning. It is important to grasp the entirety of Gods story. There is none like it! - Dr. Dan Sharp

*PASSING OF THE PEACE

St. Paul always greeted with the words, The peace of God be with you. This is an appropriate way to greet fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, and so we say, The peace of the Lord be with you and respond, And also with you. We then pass this greeting of peace to one another. At the passing of the peace we should earnestly desire Gods peace upon each person we greet.
