A time of fellowship following the service of worship is held in the social hall. Coffee, juice and refreshments will be served.
The banner hanging in the front of the sanctuary represents the wilderness, reminding us of the forty days that Jesus spent there, fasting and being tempted by the devil.
The palms are for Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. And the purple, the color of royalty is a reference to Christ the King. The variety of purples and the black lettering remind us of the pain, suffering and passion that we remember as we pray during this season.
Bordering the banner is the color of white that represents the anticipation of the Easter season.
