WHAT ARE WE DOING?
There will be No Sunday School classes on March 20th, as it’s a time we gather together as a faith community to begin our celebration of Holy Week. This begins with a processional from Washington Park to the church at 10:30 AM.
Please arrive a few minutes early to pick-up a palm branch at the front of the sanctuary and walk across the street to Washington Park where we will meet-up as a congregation. Once we’ve begun, we will make a jubilant procession to the church in remembrance of Jesus triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The celebration continues inside the sanctuary with Family Eucharist and a Passion Reading from the Gospel of Luke with adult and children participation.
We also have a Lenten Project and Social Family Gathering planned after mid-morning worship service. Please join us!
Child Care this Sunday will be held in the back of the Church in the Narthex or outer gallery immediately to the left when enter through the big red doors.
NEED SOME DIRECTIONS?

Did you know? On March 27, 1513, the Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon discovered Florida as he searched for the Fountain of Youth. He named the land Florida because he made his discovery on Easter Sunday (the same date 3/27 as this year) and the Easter Season in Spain was called Pascua Florida (Flowery Easter).
