What images come to mind when you think of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem? Do you picture him on a colt, cloaks on the ground, palm branches waving? He enters the Holy City amidst people shouting with joy. Yet if you read closely there is an underlying tension of opposition. How do you handle opposition? Does it make you want to run? Quit? Throw in the towel? Jesus, however, had a higher vision. Jesus had a “Godly” view. Jesus pressed on.
This event begins a week of triumph and tragedy, and then greater triumph. Five services celebrate the magnificence of what God has done for us. This Sunday includes a children’s procession with palms and then a performance with bells. MATT LEE sings “The Holy City.” Then Thursday and Friday join us at 7pm as we present “The Living Last Supper” and “Were You There?” a view of the cross through the eyes of the soldier who was in charge of the crucifixion.
Saturday, April 19, the sanctuary is open for a prayer vigil from 6 am – midnight.
Sunday services are at 6:45 am on the patio, and 10:30 am, for the presentation of “The Majesty and Glory of the Resurrection.” A pancake breakfast, Sunday School, and an Easter egg hunt take place between services. Bring your friends! We would love for you to “be there.”
READ the Sermon: Do You Weep Over Your City?
Someone once said, ‘the only thing that’s constant is change.’ Obviously we live during a time when technological advancements have changed the way we view the world. Thanks to technology we now have a global understanding of the world. We are no longer isolated from our neighbors.
Our world has changed but we continue to follow our Savior Jesus. Jesus has always been ahead of the game and is even more compelling and alluring TODAY. So watch out because this Sunday we’ll exploring the next right step Jesus is calling us to take. Our text is the healing of the paralytic at Bethesda in John 5:1-16. In this story Jesus heals a man who has been disabled for 38 years.
As an added bonus, we will be hearing James Dunning perform “Walk On” by U2!
We will have a great time together. Honoring the Lord, encouraging one another, and celebrating as we prepare for our Risen Christ!!!
