Sunday’s Message: Pastor Bob Miller “An unexpected Interruption”
Luke 19: 41:48 “As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it…” Luke 19:41
PALM SUNDAY is the beginning of Holy Week which will culminate next Sunday with Christians around the world celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus! This Sunday morning we Celebrate Christ’s “Triumphal Entry” announcing that He is the Lord! It is also the 1st Sunday of the Month when we would normally celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper as a body of believers. Even though we cannot gather “physically” – nevertheless we remain ONE BODY united in Christ, the Lord! And so, this Sunday morning, I am encouraging that wherever you happen to be watching our webcast, that we ALL participate together by celebrating Communion!
As we conclude our Service, Pastor Alii from our Kailua Samoan Congregation will be joining me as we lead you in partaking of this Holy Sacrament. (Many of you will have received “pre-packaged” communion cups and wafers for your use – please have them ready. If you do not have them, then you may use grape/red juice and bread/crackers for this moment of remembrance.)
GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE @ 6:30pm. This coming Friday evening, April 10th we will post a very special Worship Service. It will feature an “eye-witness” account of the events surrounding Christ’s Crucifixion from the perspective of the Apostle Peter, Pontius Pilot and Joseph of Arimathea. Communion will once again be served. Please plan on setting this time aside as we continue in our Lenten journey towards Resurrection Day!
SUNRISE SERVICE at 6 am. While we will not be meeting as a group – I encourage you to rise early and join with us in a Sunrise Celebration of Worship. You will be thrilled to hear the story of Christ’s Resurrection through the eyes of Mary Magdalene.
EASTER RESURRECTION CELEBRATION Sunday, April 12th @ 10 am
