This Sunday kicks off our annual remembrance of the last week of our Lord’s mortal life.

Palm Sunday (4/1): We will take a break from Matthew and look at the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. There will be no Sunday Evening Prayer Meeting that night.

Small Groups: Our six Small Groups will gather throughout the week to discuss together the Palm Sunday sermon and help each other apply it to life.

Good Friday (4/6): We will have a contemplative service re-living the events surrounding Jesus’ crucifixion at The Meeting Place from 6:30 to 7:30 PM.

Electronic Media Fast: Every year we’ve done some kind of church-wide fast during Holy Week. This year we’re asking that everyone refrain from using any electronic media from sun down on Friday until sun up on Sunday (i.e. TV, movies, email, video games, iPhone, Facebook). Instead, use this time to rest, pray, read a spiritually nourishing book, or something else that helps you and your family meditate on the Lord and his work.

Holy Saturday: We’re having a grill out with Church of the Beloved and the Near West Vineyard behind The Meeting Place handing out hot dogs and burgers and inviting people to Easter services from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. It would be great to have a bunch of people there. Pray for good weather.

Easter (4/8): We will have a potluck breakfast all together at 9:45 AM and then a service celebrating the resurrection of Jesus at 10:45 AM. We will have to be done with the service by noon in order for the Church of the Beloved to get in for their service at 1:00 PM. There will be no Sunday Evening Prayer Meeting that night.
