We gathered together on Palm Sunday to begin Holy Week together. The band led us in loud “Hosannas” as the children entered, waving their palm branches. Jack Tacoma was our guest preacher and he joined the band with his harmonicas. With special prayers and thoughtful teaching, we entered Holy Week, beginning Jesus’ journey to the cross and his triumphant resurrection. You are welcome to join us for our Good Friday service, Friday at 10 am.
Sunday March 31st – we woke up to another snowy day, but there was warmth and life at the MRCC! Peter and the band led us in songs of praise about God’s grace and love for us. Rein, Bill, Sheryl, Jackie and Deb brought the scripture to life with a dramatic reading of the scripture, and Pastor Henry continued the sermon series on The Peter Principles. Lynda shared her testimony with us, and everyone was encouraged by her story. After church, we welcomed newcomers to a special lunch where they could enjoy some tasty food, and hear about some of the church activities. It was a great Sunday at the River!
Illustrated Children’s Ministry is a company that provides colouring posters of all sorts and seasons. We purchased a set of Lenten posters and found lots of willing hands to colour them. Thank you to the ladies, families and Sunday School classes that coloured them so beautifully. Such a variety of styles and colours, fitting art for this season of Lent.
