Home Worship – Palm Sunday – April 5, 2020

Good Morning Everyone,

I invite you to start your time of worship this morning by reading Psalm 31:1-16 out loud.

Our Palm Sunday celebrations always have lots of music, so you can click or tap on the links to the some of the songs and hymns we had planned for worship this week.

The Old Testament Reading is Isaiah 50:4-9

The Gospel Reading is Matthew 21:1-11

Here are the Family Time and Message videos for the day.

Family Time – “Palm Sunday”

Message – “Good News People (Part 6): Living the Good News”

If you want to dig a bit deeper into the themes from today’s message you can use the study guide. You can also order or download a copy of the The King Jesus Gospel by Scot McKnight at Amazon or Indigo.ca Today’s message draws on chapter 11 of Scot’s book.  This finishes up the Good News People series and study of Scot McKnight’s The King Jesus Gospel. I hope it was helpful.

Our choir’s rendition of the African American spiritual ‘Ride on King Jesus’ has been a highlight of Palm Sunday the last few years.  Until next year here is the Steve Bell version our choir uses.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and always. Amen.

Best,

John
