From Fr. Ray

This Sunday we will remember Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on what has become known as Palm Sunday. At 10:15 our friends from First United Methodist and First Presbyterian will be joining us in our Garden for the liturgy of the palms followed by our worship service at the usual time of 10:30.  We are very blessed this week to have Ms. Elizabeth Garcia as our guest soloist. Ms. Garcia is a talented young woman who teaches music at the KIPP School.

I hope to see you this Sunday as we join the first Palm Sunday crowd in proclaiming, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

 Blessings, Fr. Ray +
