"Faith That Feeds"
We believe that faith should feed and nurture our spirits.
We believe also that faith should lead us to feed people
in the many different ways they hunger,
both physically and spiritually.

Hybrid Sunday Worship

Palm/Passion Sunday

March 24, 2024

This week, the center of the church’s year, is one of striking contrasts: Jesus rides into Jerusalem surrounded by shouts of glory, only to be left alone to die on the cross, abandoned by even his closest friends. Mark’s gospel presents Jesus in his complete human vulnerability: agitated, grieved, scared, forsaken. Though we lament Christ’s suffering and all human suffering, we also expect God’s salvation: in the wine and bread, Jesus promises that his death will mark a new covenant with all people. We enter this holy week thirsty for the completion of God’s astonishing work.

Join the Palm Sunday Processional!

All are invited to join in the Palm Sunday Procession on March 24th. Meet at Immanuel at 9:00 am to pick up a palm. We'll go over to Raymond Park where the procession will begin at 9:15 am.

After the park procession, join us for coffee in Fellowship Hall prior to worship service. Then, receive a bulletin and reader (and a palm if you haven't already) from an usher; then gather in the Courtyard for a procession into the Sanctuary. You may also go into the Sanctuary directly. Hosanna in the highest!
