I hope this post finds you all well and in good spirits on this final Friday before Holy Week. Although our regularly scheduled gatherings are cancelled, for those in Lake City, there are plenty of opportunities to observe Holy Week. Although I will post this information again, I’ve included the schedule for Holy Week at the end of this communication.
This Sunday is Palm Sunday… and as such we’ll have live palm reeds for those attending the worship service on Sunday. For those who might not be joining us for the service, I’ll leave the remainder of the palms in a bucket in front of the church. If you’d like one, please swing by the church on Sunday (starting at 12:00pm). This week’s lectionary readings only offer a Psalm and a Gospel reading, the latter which will be the preaching text this week. You can find them both here.
Here are your announcements for the week:
Games Up Here
No games this week because of Holy Week.
Join us this Wednesday, April 13th for our final mid-week Lenten Prayer at noon in the CPC sanctuary. This service will also include a special celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
Wednesday Bible Study
Last week, we completed our trek through the whole Bible! Consequently, we’re taking the next couple of weeks off. Look out for a survey next week to suggest “hot topics” for our next Bible Study series.
Men’s Prayer Breakfast
Join the men of Lake City this Thursday, April 14th at 7:00am for good food, prayer, and Bible study.
Holy Week Schedule
Please note the Holy Week Schedule below. There you will find all the offerings in Lake City during Holy Week. Community Presbyterian Church gatherings are in Italics. The Service of the Resurrection will be broadcasted through Zoom.
