11:2 . . ., "Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it.
11:3 If anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' just say this, 'The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.'"
11:4 They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it,
11:5 some of the bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"
11:6 They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it.
11:7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it.
11:8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields.
11:9 Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord
11:10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!"
12:12 The next day the great crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
12:13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord-- the King of Israel!"
12:14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written:
12:15 "Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt!"
12:16 His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written of him and had been done to him.
March 1--9:30 Worship Service with Holy Communion, The Lord's Supper is a holy
meal of bread and wine that symbolizes the body and blood of Christ. The Lord's
Supper recalls the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and celebrates the unity of
all the members of God's family. By sharing this meal
we give thanks for
Christ's sacrifice and are nourished and empowered to go into the world in mission
and ministry. We practice "open communion," welcoming all who love Christ,
repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another.
Come let us celebrate together! Potluck following the service.
