This is mid-Lent.  But before we know it, Holy Week will be here. A week in which we take time to remember how Jesus saved us.

The same as on a rollercoaster climbing up to the first hill, we start at Palm Sunday.  A joyous day as Jesus is greeted with people waving palms.  Everyone wants to be with him!!  Hosanna !!

At the top of the first hill, it is Holy Thursday and the night of the Last Supper when Jesus changed the bread and wine into His Body and Blood.  What a gift!!

Then,  whoosh,  we are heading down fast...Jesus' suffering in the garden, His arrest, trial, tortures.
Good Friday we reflect on all He did to save us--death on a cross.

Holy Saturday and we start going up again...the Easter Vigil starts in darkness, but gives way to light.  Jesus is risen!!  He is the Light of the world!  Easter!  We can now breathe easy and join with all Christians and proclaim:
      ALLELUIA!!!

 


 Margaret Goodnow Long, mother-in-law of Jane Long, died March15th.
May she rest in peace.
 

Lent 2000 continues at the home of Mary Margaret on Thursdays: April 6 & 13.  Welcome!!
 

Thank you to those who remember us with the Monthly Giving!!

Have you returned your Church Census to the office?
 

About the US Census: make sure you put down ASL as your language, so the government will start to recognize it as a real language!
