Hello, Friends –
I hope you have all been keeping well
This week Promise Church will try something new. At 1:30 on Sunday afternoon, March 5, we will gather in a virtual Worship Service. We will use a platform called Google Hangouts; it is simple to use, but we are not sure if you need a Google account, so try it out before Sunday if you plan to join us. Here is the link for you to try:
If you follow the link and your face appears on the screen, you’ll know you are ready for Sunday.
For this Sunday’s scripture Pastor Winston Janusz has chosen the traditional Palm Sunday narrative from the Gospel of Matthew.
1 When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, just say this, ‘The Lord needs them.’ And he will send them immediately.” 4 This took place to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet, saying, 5 “Tell the daughter of Zion, Look, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” 6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; 7 they brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and he sat on them. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!” 10 When he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking, “Who is this?” 11 The crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee.”
We are looking forward to being together this Sunday, please join us.
