Worship Themes and Scriptures

See Calendar and Announcements for more activities.

Scriptures are from the New Revised Standard Version.
March 24 - Third Sunday in Lent. Luke 13:1–9. Repent! He asked them, "Do you think because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as they did."

March 31 - Fourth Sunday in Lent. Luke 15:1–3, 11b–32.
Amazing Grace. Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him. And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, "This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them." [Then Jesus told them the parables of the Lost Sheep, Lost Coin, and the Prodigal and His Brother.]

April 7 - Fifth Sunday in Lent. John 12:1–8. A Priceless Offering. Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus' feet, and wiped them with her hair.

April 14 - Palm Sunday. Luke 19:28–40. Joyfully Praise God. When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, saying, "Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here."
