Church Bulletin Passion Sunday 2019

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 in early June.  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.



Forty Days and Forty Nights                                                      C. P. E. Bach

Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach (1714-1788), the fifth child of J. S. Bach, was a member of the orchestra for King Frederick the Great of Prussia and a composer of keyboard and orchestral music. His prelude on “Aus der tiefe” presents the tune, followed by an ornamented version.


(Psalm 43:1-2a, 3a,b) Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation. O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man: for thou art the God of my strength. O send out Thy light and Thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Thy holy hill.


(Psalm 111:1b) I will praise the LORD with my whole heart. (Psalm 119:17) Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep Thy word.

O Sacred Head                                                                                       J. S. Bach

Communion Anthem     The Cross                                         Ernest C. Winchester

Ernest Charles Winchester (1854-1916), English church musician and composer, wrote his choral setting of a poem by S. Conant Foster (1854-1885), an American bicyclist and Otis elevator employee.


Ah, Holy Jesus                                                                       Johannes Brahms

Brahms (1833-1897) composed this setting of “Herzliebster Jesu” as a group of eleven organ choral preludes during his last year.

Passion Sunday is the fifth Sunday of Lent that is the beginning of a two week period called Passiontide. This day is called the Latin term Judica, from the Introit for today from Psalm 43:1: “Judica me, Deus.”
