Home Worship – Palm Sunday – March 28, 2021

This Sunday, March 28th is Palm Sunday. This would normally be a big Sunday at St. Andrew’s as we welcome Jesus to Jerusalem as king and begin holy week.  But even though we’re still worshipping in our own homes we can still mark this as a special day and take time this week to follow Jesus from the palms, to the cross and on to the resurrection on Easter.

Our Home Worship service for this week will go live on YouTube at 10:30am. The service continues to be available by telephone for those without internet access.
