Holy Week Begins
This Sunday is Palm Sunday
This Sunday, March 25th, 8:30am & 10:30am
We'll start in our Gathering Space to begin the Palm Procession by the Lake, weather permitting. Then enter the Church for the service of Holy Communion, and the interactive reading of the first half of the Passion Gospel. I will preach, the sermon Why is this week different from other weeks? based on Matthew 26:14- 27:66 (http://bit.ly/2oBDHlH). All are welcome to join us for Palm Sunday; the best way to begin Holy Week with Jesus.

Easter is always a very special day here at St. Martin's by the Lake. While we can't guarantee Spring flowers, we can promise the Hope the Resurrection brings! All are invited to join us, for all are welcome.
Sing your favorite hymns of Easter, hear an inspiring biblical sermon, and end with an Easter Egg hunt for the kids.
Plan now and be sure to arrive early, services tend to fill on this very special day. Donations of food to our local food shelves are gladly welcomed!
I will be away from the Church April 2nd through August. I will have some personal time away for rest, reflection and pilgrimage. I will also be attending a variety of Conferences and visiting innovative Churches in our Episcopal, and Anglican tradition to learn best practices there to bring back here.
