Expectant Mothers & Fathers
Scripture doesn’t tell us concerning the whereabouts of Jesus’ mother, Mary, that Holy Week until Good Friday when she was there at her son’s cross. One wonders when she arrived to Jerusalem. Was she part of the pilgrim crowd that came with Jesus? If so, did she hear the wild shouts of joy and praise by the Palm Sunday crowd? If she did…did she think back to that day when the angel Gabriel announced to her that she would be the mother of Jesus? Did she think about the nine months of pregnancy, carrying Jesus in her womb? Today we are invited to pray for expectant mothers and fathers. Pray that as the day of birth comes their hearts will swell with joy as the celebrate God’s amazing gift of life!
As today is Palm Sunday we especially invite you to worship our Lord at either the 8:00 or 10:30 worship services. Special music will be celebrated at both services.
