March 27, 2023


I encourage you to join us tomorrow evening at 7:00 as we host the final “Honoring the Faith of Our Neighbors” gathering. We will begin in the Sanctuary for a time of worship, instruction and discussion and then adjourn to the Family Room for refreshments and conversation. You might even learn something about our church and our American Baptist tradition that you did not know. If you can bring a plate of snacks with you, it would be appreciated. We will have you on your way home by shortly after 8:00.

“Help Us to Realize That God Is the Answer”: Palm Sunday Prayer by The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (A Baptist Pastor)

Let us pray. Oh God our gracious Heavenly Father, in the glory of this Palm Sunday, help us to realize the darkness of the week ahead, with its Gethsemane, yes, with tis Calvary, with its dark cross. Oh, God, help us to realize though that in the midst of this, there is a way out as we face life’s central test, the test of making the transition from “Let this cup pass from me” to “nevertheless.” God grant that we will discover that it can only be faced by giving our ultimate allegiance to Thee and to a religious view of life. Help us to realize that God is the answer. In the midst of all our disappointments, God is the answer. Help us to live with that philosophy. And by that we will be able to live until we meet Thee in all of They eternities. In the name and spirit of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
