This Weekend at First (3/27/15)

This is Palm Sunday weekend, the beginning of a week of reflection on our Lord’s life, death, and resurrection!

Evensong Service Tomorrow

We will gather Saturday night at 7pm to kick off our commemoration of Holy Week. The service traces the arc of Holy Week—coronation (Palm Sunday), passion (Good Friday), resurrection (Easter)—with instrumental pieces, Scripture readings, vocal arrangements, and congregational singing. Join us for this wonderful time of reflection.

Blood Drive Tomorrow

The New York Blood Center will be stationed outside our building tomorrow from 9am to 3pm. If you are able, please serve our neighbors by coming by the church and donating.

Sunday School

The ladies Bible study will start a series on James led by Elsie Cadet-Grieg, while the men continue their look at Mark’s gospel. Children’s classes are available. Join us Sunday at 9.30am.

Reminder: there will be no Sunday school on Easter Sunday.

Palm Sunday Worship Service

Here’s a look ahead at the songs we plan to sing Sunday morning.

The sermon text will be Isaiah 24.

Holy Week—Bring a Friend!

Many people go to church twice a year: Christmas and Easter. We have many events this Holy Week, and your friends—whether Christian or not—are more than welcome to any and all of them. So let them know and invite them to come with you to celebrate the cross and empty tomb. Who knows what God will do through your invitation?

  • Thursday at 7.30pm: Maundy Thursday Fellowship Meal
  • Friday at 7.30pm: Good Friday Communion Service
  • Next Sunday at 9.00am: Easter Sunrise Service
  • Next Sunday at 10.00am: Continental Breakfast
  • Next Sunday at 11.00am: Resurrection Celebration

Easter Offering

We continue to collect our offering for the boiler fund. Our goal is to match the $25,000 gift given by a sister church. As of this past Sunday, we’ve already matched $6,024! To God be the glory! Let us pray fervently and give generously to meet this goal.

Hope to see you tomorrow night!
