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.
