Mar 26, 2023 Worship Service

Hello Everyone! This is the fifth week of Lent! Time has once again gone by quickly. Next week is Palm Sunday.

Today we will be looking at some of the people who were with Jesus just before he arrived in Jerusalem for the Passover. We will sing some hymns of Praise and also come before God in Prayer.

Thanks very much to Leroy N. for preaching last Sunday and to Norm A. for covering the Announcements.
