Palm Sunday April  14, 2019 Bulletin

Visitors – Welcome!

Peace and joy in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Please advise us of your visit and ask for a “First Time Visitor Bulletin” which briefly explains the communion service.  Please join our church family in the Parish Hall after the service for fellowship, drinks, and food.

Holy Communion

If you have been confirmed by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession, you are invited to receive the Blessed Sacrament.  If not, but are a Baptized Christian, please come to the Altar Rail for a blessing (simply cross your arms over your chest when the Celebrant approaches.)  If you have questions, please speak to the clergy.

Everyone wants to help take care of their church, but your available time is not always when the church schedules time.  So during this time of Lent or after, go to the sign-up board:  put your name by a job(s) and let me know when you plan to be here (day or night).  Some jobs have been taken, sign-up soon before all the good ones are gone.


Our Yard Sale will be taking place on June 8th.  Sylvia Anderson has agreed to line baskets with pretty fabric for us to sell during this sale.  If you have baskets that you no longer need, please bring them to the church ASAP so she will have time to work on them!!!

If you have stuff and can’t wait until May, you can bring it to the Parish hall starting NOW.



All Glory, Laud and Honor                                                    G. F. Kauffmann

This hymn is a 19th century translation of part of a Latin poem written by Theodulph of Orleans (c.760-821) that has been used for Palm Sunday processions for centuries. Since the mid-19th century, it has been joined with the 1614 tune for the Lutheran hymn “Farewell I Gladly Bid Thee.” The prelude on this hymn tune is by Georg Friedrich Kauffmann (1679-1735), organist-director for the Duke of Saxe-Merseburg, Germany.


(Psalm 22:19, 21) Be not Thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste Thee to help me. Save me from the lion’s mouth: and deliver me from the horns of the unicorns. (Psalm 22:1a,b) My God, my God why hast Thou forsaken me: why art Thou so far from helping me?

Offertory Sentence

(Psalm 69:20) Reproach hath broken my heart; and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.


Offertory/Postlude    Wondrous Love                                            Daniel Pinkham

This American hymn was first published in 1811, became well known after its publication in the 1835 book Southern Harmony by William Walker of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Daniel Pinkham (1923-2006), church musician and professor at the New England Conservatory of Music, wrote several variations on the hymn that reflect the simplicity of the original tune.

The Communion Hymn 63, “The Royal Banners” is the Latin hymn “Vexilla Regis” written in 569 as a processional hymn when relics of the True Cross were received at the monastery in Poitiers, France. Its author, Venantius Honorius Fortunatus, was a priest and bishop at Poitiers who is a major Latin poet of the period. The tune is contemporary with the poem.
