Service Bulletin for Palm Sunday – April 5, 2020

Palm Sunday Worship
Tomorrow’s April 5th lifestream of Saint Peter Lutheran’s Palm Sunday worship will take place at 10:30 a.m.  We will also stream our Hispanic service at 1:00 p.m.  Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week – the most intense week of our Christian Year.  Palm Sunday has been celebrated in the Christian Church since the 4th century.  Hosanna is the shout of praise so familiar to Palm Sunday worshipers.  It literally means “Save us we pray!”  Jesus rode into Jerusalem to do just that. He is worthy of our full attention this week.  You can access tomorrow’s service on St. Peter Lutheran’s Facebook page.  If you cannot watch at 10:30 or 1:00, the videos will remain on our page for a week or so. Click here to go to our Facebook page

Here’s some encouragement during these troubling days:

The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?   Psalm 27:1  

So many things are changing on a day-to-day basis, but one thing remains constant.  The Lord remains the same and he remains the light of our life. His grace in Jesus Christ is our strength and our constant confidence.  We need his Gospel promises of assurance and mercy more than ever. Still we wonder “how long we must endure these interruptions from our regular lives of work, school, worship, fellowship, and play?”  Let us be mindful of the last verse of Psalm 27: Wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart, and wait for the Lord!

God’s blessings,
SPLCS Executive Committee
