Celebrate Palm Sunday with Holy Communion
MARCH 28 AT 11AM ON ZOOM
When Jesus rides into Jerusalem, the people had hopes he would heal the oppressive system they were living under. We know that his healing was not confined to that moment in history, but offers a new way of life that has made a case for compassion for all, especially “the least,” ever since. Wave palm branches or colorful scarves as we usher in this holy week.
APRIL 1 AT 6:30PM ON ZOOM
We will gather around dinner tables in our homes, breaking bread, sharing in conversation, and remembering the evening that Jesus spent with his friends before he was arrested. During dessert we will experience spoken word from members of Creative Expressions.

APRIL 2 AT 8:00PM ON ZOOM
Experience the retelling of the Passion story through word and song, shadow and light. The congregation is invited to reflect on what it means, during the COVID pandemic and with our experiences of racism and violence this past year, to be anointed with oil, to share in the Last Supper, to offer prayers at Gethsemane and to witness the violent nature of Jesus’ death on the cross and words of forgiveness as he breathes his last.
