Fifth Sunday in Lent

This morning we are happy to welcome back Rev. Dr. Laurie Anderson, who will preach and preside at this morning's service and every Sunday through April 29. Rev. Andersen was ordained in the Metro NY Synod in 1996 and is currently a board certified chaplain specializing in palliative care at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. With a doctorate in pastoral counseling, Pastor Andersen's ministry focus is to the sick and homebound, the terminally ill, family caregivers, and hospital staff. Laurie is a native New Yorker, and currently resides with her husband Mark Goodwin on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She enjoys helping with pulpit supply when needed and is happy to be with us in this transitional time.

Please join us next Sunday as we begin Holy Week with the celebration of Palm Sunday. We invite those who are able to meet at 9:50 am in front of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd on Benedict Boulevard for our annual Procession of Palms. The procession will end at Our Saviour, where we join with the rest of the congregation in celebration of Palm Sunday.

Holy Week begins next Sunday. We need volunteers to assist with our Holy Week and Easter services. Please consider helping out as a greeter, communion assistant, worship assistant, lector, or light operator. A sign-up sheet can be found on the link table.

Easter lily order forms can be found on the link and narthex tables. Please consider donating an Easter lily in honor or memory of someone dear to you for $15 per plant. Plants will adorn our Easter altar and can be taken home after the Easter services.

We will once again have an Easter egg hunt between our 8:00am and 10:00am Easter services. We are collecting plastic eggs and wrapped candy for the Hunt. Please leave any contributions at the church office.

Christian Crafters: Quilting has begun! Please join us on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 am to noon as we make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. We have good Christian fellowship with coffee, and often some sweets to help with creativity. It is OK if you can't make every Tuesday—come when you can.

Hospitality and Sunday servant sign-up Sheets are available on the link table. Please consider hosting a coffee hour or participating in our Sunday worship as a greeter/usher, communion assistant, lector, worship assistant, or choir member.

Checks should be made out to the church and designated "Altar Flowers". After the service, you may take the flowers home or contribute them to be taken to shut-ins or given to others.
