Palm Sunday, April 5

Palm Sunday Praises

Are you ready for something to get excited about? Being stuck at home and social distancing were not exactly how any of us expected to be celebrating Palm Sunday. Yet, there is reason for celebration this Sunday! There is reason for great celebration this Sunday! Even in the midst of a global pandemic, let us join the throng of worshippers and discover the hope Jesus brings and which we all so desperately need right now!

Join me, your friends, and your Grace Church online family as we come together this Sunday at 10:00 AM for another livestream worship service and message via Facebook. My message entitled, “Hope for the World,” will feature three important and life-giving reasons why even in the worst of times, we still have hope. Jesus is coming to town and there is reason to praise. Tell your friends and “join the parade!”

For those of you on Facebook, simply log in to  just before 10:00 AM CST.  Or, go to our website at and click on the Facebook icon on our homepage.  Please print the attached order of service, sermon outline, and song sheet and have them with you.  Please bring your Bible, a pen, and even some hot coffee if you like!

For those not on Facebook, I will post a copy of Sunday’s livestream service and message to YouTube by early Sunday afternoon.  You’ll be able to access that also through our web site by clicking on the 2020 Sermons page under the Resources tab on the top banner.  Just scroll down to the sermon title and click on the YouTube version of the Watch Video options.  A sermon audio will also be posted as usual on Monday.

I look forward to “seeing” and being together with you again this Sunday morning.  Even as we can’t be together physically, at least we can be together virtually and through God’s Spirit.  Feel free to log on with your computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone.  Gather together casually with your friends and family and let’s have a “watch party.”  May God’s Spirit be abundantly present in our fellowship this Sunday!

Together in Christ,

Pastor Dave Van Netten
