WORSHIP ONLINE: PALM SUNDAY – APRIL 5, 2020

TIME: 11 AM – 11:30 AM
VIA VIDEO OR PHONE CONFERENCE


Dear friends,

Our first ever online worship service last Sunday was a great reminder of Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” As we enter Holy Week, we hope that you continue to be reminded of the miracle of Jesus Christ, and that because of Him, we are never alone. Seeing everyone congregate online continues to brighten up our spirit and we hope that you all can join us tomorrow for Palm Sunday worship at 11 a.m. As we continue to have worship service online, we will provide you with the login information every Saturday afternoon. Please find below the instructions to join us via video or phone conference.

Blessings,

The Ministerial Team and the Board of Elders/Administrative Board
