Dear brothers and sisters in Christ -
The people of God have always gathered together in times of hardship and persecution in order to pray our merciful heavenly Father would grant us the strength to withstand the evil one's temptation to despair. It is no different now, except that our gathering together needs to be from a distance, using social media rather than our sanctuaries in order to share in the worship of God and hear His Word.
In order to enhance our worship together, attached is the service format for Palm Sunday. Please download and print this abbreviated service so that you will be able to participate in our remote worship together. There will be CDs available of each Sunday worship conducted remotely, primarily for our Seniors who do not "surf the net." If you know of someone who would be edified by receiving a CD, or you would like a copy, please let me know.
I miss you all. Unfortunately, this is how we must - for our safety and the safety of others - conduct our worship lives for the time being. And although we might not understand, God will bless our faithfulness.
COMMUNION: Since we are ordered to stay in place, while travel restrictions are the order of the day, I will not be offering Sacrament at home at this time - unless part of the commendation of the dying. As soon as the travel ban is lifted, I will resume at home Communion.
God bless you all - stay healthy.
Soli Deo Gloria ~ Pastor Henry

"Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and His strength; seek his face always."
Psalm 105: 3-5
From Pastor's Pen
You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, …you will see him, just as he told you. [Mark 16:6,7]
Happy All-Promises-Have-Been-Kept Day. for that is what Easter is. It is the day that all the promises and covenants of God were fulfilled in Jesus Christ, beginning with that very first promise in the Garden: I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel [Genesis 3:15].
Indeed, all promises were kept that first Easter, as well as assuring that our promised future would also come to pass. As St Paul wrote to the Church at Rome: We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. [Romans 6:4-5]
So then, Happy Easter! For the baptized into Christ, it is the day of your resurrection assured as well.
He is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
