Mark the following dates in your calendar as we move closer to Holy Week and Easter. All services will be online and links will be posted in next week's newsletter and on the website.
Palm Sunday - March 28, 9:30am. You are invited to come to the church and pick up a palm on Saturday at the Bell Tower from 11-1 and at The Shop from 1-4. If you are not able to get to the church or to have someone do so on your behalf, please join in other world Palm Sunday traditions by picking a cedar branch or some pussy willows to use as your palm. There will be an additional blessing on Zoom for these extra "palms".

While we are not able to celebrate the Eucharist or share the footwashing, the service will include a time of Garden Watch as we join the disciples who waited while Jesus prayed and watched from afar after Jesus was arrested.
