Our Latest Worship Service

"The crowds—those who went in front of Jesus and those who followed--were all shouting, 'Hosanna to the Heir to the House of David! Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Most High! Hosanna in the highest!'" - Matthew 21:9

During our hiatus from in-person gatherings, we are seeking to stay connected with one another through online worship. Below is the worship service for Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020. The scripture of the day was Matthew 21:1-11, and Rev. Petersen's sermon was entitled "Which Side Are You On?"
