Sunday, April 5, 2020. 9AM

“There’s never been such a divisive leader!”  “He thinks he’s above the law.”  “He acts like he’s a king!”  “He’s WONDERFUL!”  “He should be killed!”  “How dare you?”  Of course, you recognize that I’m talking about Jesus, right?  This week we will celebrate Palm Sunday:  Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week. Join us this Sunday at 9:00 am on Zoom ( as we learn more about this event and as we begin the journey toward the cross.  If you need any help getting connected to Zoom, please email or call.

This week we could use a lector – any volunteers?  You will need to make sure that your microphone works, but otherwise, ANYONE can do it.  Please “Reply All” if you can help in this way.  You can bring your own treats again this week.  The readings for Sunday are:

Zechariah 9:9-17

Psalm 118:1-4, 19-29

Philippians 2:1-11

Matthew 21:1-17
