Our Palm Sunday worship, includes lots of wonderful music. We are particularly grateful to Cyndy Jones for recording a solo on her viola (check this week’s prelude) and to Elation Pauls, who joined John Poettcker for piano / violin duets, one of which will be our postlude this week. More to come in next week’s worship! Thanks to all who have contributed to our worship over this past year.

Palm Sunday worship will also include communion. You may want to have some bread or crackers and some juice or other drink when you sit down to worship.

Please keep the family of Gladys Lowry especially in your prayers as they join for a small funeral/memorial service on Tuesday, March 30. Gladys was a long-time and treasured member of the Harrow community. She died December 13, 2020.
People often like to remember a loved one at Easter time with a memorial donation to the church. If this is something you would like to do, please call or email the church office (204-284-0079 or email@example.com) to let us know who the donation is in memory of and how you would like your gift to be used. On Easter and the week following, we will publish a list of all those being honoured.

Light the Flame for a Guaranteed Livable Income on April 8, 2021
In this video, Moderator Richard Bott invites us to join the call for a Guaranteed Livable Income and contact our Prime Minister and Minister of Finance. April 8 is a chance to make visible this call and Light the Flame for a Guaranteed Livable Income. Plan to light a candle and post publicly on social media (#UCCanlivableincome) in solidarity with small outdoor vigils being held on Parliament Hill, at Minister Chrystia Freeland’s constituency office, and at other MP constituency offices. Due to COVID-19, the vigils are restricted to locally designated individuals, and plans will be adjusted if needed. If you’d like to organize one, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Take a look at the GLI page for more information and worship resources. And sign up here to receive updates. The Cross Canada GLI network of United Church leaders is eager to connect with you.

May your Holy Week be blessed. Until Easter, I pray you are well.
