THE ORIGINAL CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
Pastor Weekly Letter for April 7, 2022
Peace From Heaven
Dear Friends in Faith,
Holy Week and Easter are upon us, and we have special services planned for your spiritual journey through this most important time of the year for the faithful. In Luke’s version of Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, the voices shout out “Peace in Heaven!” Our longing for world peace is broadly revealed on Palm Sunday.
PALM PROCESSION RETURNS
We are pleased to announce that after two years off, because of the pandemic, this year the Palm Sunday Palm Procession will return. Please join us Sunday, April 10 at our 10:00am Worship Service. We will ask for volunteers of all ages to grab a palm and walk outside and around the sanctuary, go out the office entrance to re-enter in from the common entrance (weather permitting, otherwise inside the sanctuary). Waving palms, bringing in the donkey, with music and distribution of palm branches to all, we join with Christians all over the globe recalling the day.
PANCAKES FOR PEACE
We are also pleased to announce that after two years, our Palm Sunday Church Pancake Breakfast returns this week. Our theme “Pancakes for Peace” all free will donations will go to relief efforts in Ukraine.
