This past Sunday we began our long lead-in to Easter by looking at Palm Sunday as it is described in Matthew 21:1-11. Pastor Bryan put particular emphasis on the cry of “hosanna” repeated by the crowd that gathered as Jesus entered Jerusalem. This cry is a recognition that Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. It is also a cry for help, not a despairing cry but a cry full of hope and joy, a request to God prayed out boldly with the greatest confidence. The crowd has rightly identified that Jesus is our one sure hope, the culmination of God’s perfect faithfulness.

Members’ Meeting

We will have our next members’ meeting on Sunday, March 3rd at 4:00 p.m. Besides giving general updates about what is happening here at Light in the Desert, we will also be welcoming in new members and hearing their testimonies. Not only is this practice of sharing testimonies a joyous opportunity to hear how the Lord has worked in the lives of our members, it is also a chance to get to know one another better so that we might better care for one another as we are called to do as a church family. If you are a member here at Light in the Desert, we would strongly encourage you to make time in your schedule to participate in this vital aspect of the life of the church.

Grace be with you,

Logan Murphy

Pastoral Intern
