All are welcome: Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
Sunday, March 18: As we continue to ponder readings from John's gospel we hear echoes of two earlier passages. In John 12:20-33, new people meet with Jesus as he points to his future death when he will be lifted up to draw all people to himself. The imagery is that of relationships. We are reminded of how we often need to "give it up" if we want to grow in our relationship with others, both to give up our own agendas and to lift up and affirm the needs of those we love. The same is true in our relationship with Jesus. We grow as we continue to "give it up" both for and with Christ.
Sunday, March 25: We begin Holy Week as we celebrate Palm Sunday. As we did last year, we will have a palm parade for people of all ages, avoiding the traffic jam by enlarging our route to include Centennial Hall. We then transition to consider the rest of the story as we prepare for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

6:15 p.m. Readings focusing on Jesus' last night with his disciples, and the sharing of communion.
