Palm/Passion Sunday – March 29

Worship at:

9 am in the Sanctuary with Holy CommunionPalm Sunday

11:15 am in the Sanctuary with Holy Communion & Children’s Choir

With Boy Scout Breakfast in Luther Hall all morning

 We enter into Holy Week this Sunday with a palm processional and shouts of “Hosanna!” as we journey with Jesus into Jerusalem where he was greeted with shouts of acclamation: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” We continue our journey from this joyous procession to the Last Supper, his death, the empty tomb and his resurrection.

Come and worship with us this Sunday and shout “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” All are welcome to join the palm procession into the sanctuary from the Gathering Space at the beginning of each worship service.

March is Minnesota Foodshare Month!

During the month of March, churches and businesses across the state gather food for local food shelves.  We invite you to purchase “A Meal in a Bag.”  Fill a paper grocery bag with enough non-perishable food items to feed a family of four for one meal and return the bag during the month of March.  Last year GA collected over 1,000 pounds of food and monetary donations for the Merrick Food Shelf.  Can we collect 1,200 pounds this year?
