Midweek Message 3/30/17

 

Friends in faith,

Last Sunday we learned about the chasm we create when we fail to recognize others as our sisters and brothers. This Sunday, we’ll read Luke 18:31-19:10. We’ll encounter Jesus’ forewarning of his death and resurrection, the healing of a blind man, and the transformation of Zacchaeus from one who cheated others to one who gave extravagantly. We’ll also enjoy our choir and celebrate the Lord’s Supper, a sacrament with added meaning as Jesus makes his journey to the Cross this Season of Lent.

Speaking of the journey to the Cross, Holy Week is almost upon us. We have a deep and broad offering of services in the hopes that you might encounter the depth and breadth of God’s love for us in this season. Our tech team (Amy Martinez, Emily Sneyd, and Katrina Zezza) have put together a flyer with all the details (see below). We’ll be including the full-page, full-color flyer in Sunday’s bulletins, and we hope you’ll take yours home and put it on your fridge. Individual event details are also available on our Facebook page. We hope you’ll share these opportunities with those you know who are in need of the reassurance of God’s love.

Faithfully,

Pastor Ben
