Sunday, April 3 || Alderbrook Church

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the month of April and especially the very significant weekends of Palm Sunday (April 10th), Good Friday (April 15th) and Easter Sunday (April 17th).

This Sunday we will also be starting a new sermon series titled Resurrection Life. Every day is important to us as believers, but these next few weeks are so foundational to our faith in God through what Jesus Christ did on the cross and then rose from the dead three days later.

April 3  ~ The Week that Changed Everything (*Communion)

April 10 ~ Love Started Here (Palm Sunday) 

April 17 ~ A New Kind of Alive (Easter Sunday: Water Baptism)

If you cannot attend church this Sunday, why not join online through our Zoom stream.

Let’s continue to remember to pray for the country of Ukraine this week that God will bring protection and peace!!

Why not join us for Zoom Prayer every Wednesday from 7:30pm-8pm

Matthew 21:1-6 “As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethpage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, ‘Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away’. This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: ‘Say to the daughter of Zion, “See your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey” ‘. The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.”

John 13:4-5 “…so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.”

Matthew 26:36-38 “Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, ‘Sit here while I go over there and pray’.

Stay here and keep watch with me,'”

John 18:39-40 “ ‘But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release the king of the Jews?’ They shouted back, ‘No, not him! Give us Barabbas!”

Matthew 27:24 “When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. ‘I am innocent of this man’s blood’ he said. ‘It is your responsibility.'”

Isaiah 53:4 “Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wound s we are healed.”
