Hymn: Let Us Break Bread Together
Call to Worship
As we gather today we call you, our father who art in heaven. As we gather today, we lift up who you are and who you represent. Hallowed be thou name, as we gather today, we seek your ways and not our own. Your kingdom come, your will be done. As we gather today, we say sorry to you and one another. Forgive us as we forgive, as we gather today we need you. Give us this day, our daily bread. Lead us away from temptation, deliver us from evil. As we gather today we pray. Amen.

Hymn: In Christ There is No East or West
Call to Worship
Praise the Lord, all ye nations, extol him and praise his name. For great is his steadfast love that is given to each of us this day. The great faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on each of them. I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord. On this Sabbath mornings let us praise the Lord.
At this time, we will still not be meeting in person for Sunday School. The lessons will continue to be posted on Sunday mornings, as we have been doing.
When we meet in person, we share our joys and concerns with each other. Take some time to think back on your week, and consider the joys and concerns you have. They may include for you personally, for other people, or for the wider world. The prayer below comes from Christianity.com. We will all pray the beginning of the prayer (in italics) together. In the middle, pray for your particular joys and concerns. Then, the end (in italics) will again be together.

The Day and Hour Unknown
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Happy Palm Sunday!
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”
4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5 “Say to Daughter Zion,
‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’"
6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
