March 2016 Worship Notes

Mar 6 | 9:30am & 11:00am | Lenten Candle: Flexibility| Give-a-Meal
Scripture: Psalm 32; Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
Message: Flexibility for Lent
Theme: The Prodigal Son story…none of them were experiencing the kind of life that they had expected. Jesus’ stories always have a “flip.”

Mar 13 | Lenten Candle: Receptivity
Scripture: Isaiah 43:16-21; John 12:1-8
Message: Receptivity for Lent
Theme: The Gospel shows Mary anointing Jesus’ feet with very expensive perfume. The disciples rebuke her but Jesus defends her extravagant hospitality. What is this privilege and perfume all about?

Mar 20 | Palm Sunday | Lenten Candle: Advocacy
Scripture: Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29; Luke 19:28-40
Message: Advocacy for Lent
Theme: Gospel Message: is of Jesus asking the disciples to go into the city to retrieve a donkey for him to ride. Then they spread their cloaks and palms along the ground for him to travel on…How do we make room for others and help them get what they need?

Mar 24 | Maundy Thursday | 7:00pm | Lenten Candle: Generosity
Scripture: Exodus 12:1-4, 11-14; John 13:1-17, 31b-35
Message: Generosity for Holy Week
Theme: The Ancient Hebrew people were justice minded and cared for others. Jesus takes that history and brings it alive with the foot washing and communion…and asks us to do the same.

Mar 25 | Good Friday | noon & 7:00pm | Lenten Candle: Darkness
Scripture: Psalm 22; John 18-19 selected verses
Message: Snuffed Out

Mar 27 | Easter | Sunrise, 9:30 & 11:00am
Scripture: Psalm 118; John 20:1-18
Message: Sunrise: Tipping Point | 9:30 & 11:00: Aramaic Teacher
Theme: Sunrise: There is a point where suddenly there is more of one thing than the other…this story is dark and dread and grief then comes back to life and light and love. 9:30 & 11:00: What Jesus taught us during Lent and Holy Week.
