THIS SUNDAY: March 3, 2024

3 Lent

Exodus 20:1-17

After escaping from slavery, the Israelites come to Mount Sinai, where God teaches them how to live in community with the Ten Commandments, the first four to do with loving God and the last six to do with loving each other.

Psalm 19:7-10

The Psalmist reminds us that God’s commandments are life-giving and beneficial for our lives. When we go along the grain of God’s moral universe and live in the center of God’s will, we can know peace and belonging.

John 2:13-22

Jesus pays a visit to the Temple in Jerusalem, the seat of Judaism and the center of Jewish social and religious life. There he is distressed about all the business and busyness in the area of the Courtyard of the Gentiles, which is preventing non-Jews and those with disabilities from the opportunity to worship God at the Temple. He thus drives out the moneychangers and animals that are there, drawing the ire of the Temple leaders.

Upcoming Holy Week Services/Events

"Prayer Watch"

Maundy Thursday Overnight Prayer Vigil!

March 28, 8pm to March 29, 11am

The Daughters of the King (Mana‘olana Chapter) of All Saints will be organizing a “Prayer Watch” from Thursday, March 28, 8:00pm to Friday, March 29, 11am. 

“Prayer Watch” is based on the story of the Garden of Gethsemane, the night Jesus was arrested (see Matthew 26:36-56Mark 14:32-52Luke 22:39-53 and John 18). 

After the Last Supper, Jesus led his disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus asked his closest followers – Peter, James and John – to stay with him and keep watch with him. 

Jesus left the three to pray to God, in agony, asking God to find another way. While Jesus wept in anguish, Peter, James and John fell asleep.

When Jesus returned to the group, he woke them. “So you men could not keep watch with me for one hour? Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:40-41).

With our prayer watch, let us watch and pray as Jesus asked of his disciples. 

If you would like to sign up, please use an online signup sheet here. For security, we recommend two people per hour Please enter your name, email address and cell phone on the appropriate time (Contact info is only for emergencies only). There will also be a paper sheet available at Sunday services.

A few instructions:

  • The watch will begin with Maundy Thursday Compline at 8:00pm. All are invited to participate in holding any portion of the prayer watch, but please sign up first. The prayer watch will last until 11am Good Friday.
  • We will have some books and prayer materials available.
  • Ideally, please remain in the Church until the next person(s) arrives. If you need to leave before the next person arrives, please make sure the front door is unlocked. 
  • For safety, especially during the early morning hours, you may want to lock the Church during your time. Please just make sure it is unlocked when you leave. 
  • If you have questions or concerns, please contact Faith. If it is an emergency, please call 9-1-1 first.

Thank you to the following who helped clean up the Youth Room on Sunday, February 25.
