Sunday at Neland – March 29, 2015
*9:15 AM—Palm Sunday rehearsal in the sanctuary (Preschool-5th grade)
10 AM – On this Palm Sunday/Passion Sunday, we enter the church’s holiest week of worship. It begins with the parade of the palms, remembering Jesus celebrated entrance into Jerusalem. But soon we face the week ahead, the growing tension, the agony in the Garden, the arrest, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus. Yet in the palms we also anticipate the hallelujahs of Easter’s triumph.
In a striking shift, Mark 14 shows us how Jesus’ life turned suddenly from one of intense action to being acted upon. He was “handed over,” and from that moment on his life was seemingly in the hands of others. We enter into Jesus’ passion in moments when we also are handed over, ceding control to other forces in our lives. Rev. Vander Zee will be preaching.
11:25 -12:10 – All education class will meet today.
Adult education in the Activity Center. Join us today as we share in the experiences of Neland members’ very recent trip to Haiti.
