Our online worship will begin at 10:30am central on Sunday morning. Grab a candle to recall the light of Christ, and something that you can use for communion so that you are ready to worship God. This morning we'll also have a Palm Parade - so make sure you have a Palm ready to wave! You can download a paper palm to print and cut-out, here.
Send us an email and let us know you joined us! See you at 10:30!

Blessing & Benediction (Recite it with us!)
As you leave this space,
May your mouth speak of God's goodness.
May your arms hold those in need.
May your feet walk towards justice.
May your heart trust its worth.
May your soul dance in God's grace.
And may this be your rhythm -
Again and again and again,
until God's promised day.
In the name of the Lover, the Beloved, and Love itself,
Go with courage, go with heart, go in peace.
