Hosanna! Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord! On this Palm Sunday, our Choir presented a glorious cantata, singing praises to God. Our Youth Choir was awesome and our kids were filled with the spirit!
Join us this Sunday March 24th at 10:00AM to mark the 150th birthday of the United Methodist Women. Our own Walnut UMW will lead the service with a special guest speaker delivering the message. Julie Ascuncion, East District UMW Vice President, will preach a sermon based on Romans 8:28-39 entitled “Celebrating 150 Years of Faith, Hope, Love in Action… and Beyond!” Join us!
We have a new storage shed to hold our music, equipment and supplies. But we need shelving and file cabinets! The Choir will be selling See’s Candy as a fundraiser during Lent.
Both the pastor and our Office Administrator are out sick today, so the office is closed. Hopefully, we’ll be up and running tomorrow.
I share the sad news that Bill Bassett has passed away. Bill was a formidable figure in our church community and served our church for many years. Known for his warm greeting, his pride in his grandchildren’s accomplishments, his love of the Dodgers and the generous practice of gifting people pens. For each holiday, he would show up with a pen for the occasion, or a special theme pen for each person in the choir, or a pen or pencil to give to each of the children.
Please keep Marilyn and his children in your prayers. And the many many people who will miss this kind and loving man.
As more information is available, I will share it.
Thank you, God, for the gift of Bill Bassett.
Pastor Krista will be returning from her vacation. Join us this Sunday as she preaches and talks about the importance of blessings and woes. We look forward to seeing you there, as we also welcome back our beloved Pastor.
