Your King is coming to you, gentle,
seated on a donkey, even on a colt,
the foal of a beast of burden.
Welcome to Palm Sunday Worship and to our church today. If you are a first-time guest this morning, please make sure that you visit the Welcome Counter and get a little loaf of homemade bread, our welcome gift to you. We are glad that you are here and pray that God will minister to you in such a way that you’ll want to come back every Sunday.
This Friday is our Good Friday Service at 7:00pm. We will focus on Jesus’ great love and sacrifice for us through music, communion, and live artists painting scenes of the Garden, the Trial, and the Crucifixion. It will be a special evening. Next Sunday is Easter – Resurrection Day!! Begin your day with us at the Sunrise Service starting at 7:15am followed by breakfast. Our 9:30 and 11:00am worship services will include extra music to celebrate our Risen Lord and Savior! He is worthy!
Today is the last day we are highlighting this year’s Annie Armstrong Easter Missions Offering but you can still give in the weeks ahead. Just make sure you mark your special gift so our financial secretary can make sure it is included. Last week’s launch of the 3rd Worship service in the Youth Room at 11:00am went very well! We are ironing out a few minor wrinkles going forward, but the reports were encouraging. I encourage you to check it out and introduce your friends to church through that service! We now live-stream our 11:00am morning worship service. If you can’t make church some Sunday, go to www.daytonave.org and click on the banner to stream in.
Last Sunday Clay and Kathleen Ludlow, Sunila Rueb, and Jeff Smith joined our church. If you haven’t had a chance to welcome them personally, please do so today. We love you, pray for you, and thank God for you. May God shine His face upon you as we remember His passion this week.
