Sunday, April 5th is the start of Holy Week with Palm Sunday. While we cannot be together to share in the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, we remember and give God thanks and Praise for the gift of His Son, who gave us the ultimate sacrifice on Good Friday - so that we may have life everlasting with Him.
Remember and keep in prayer our members. Give them a call, an email, perhaps a card.
Thanks be to God for His Love in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, and the gift of the Holy Spirt.
AN ENCOUNTER FOR BRAVE HEARTS
The Rev. Joel Nickel writes, "Building on his book, "The World of Jesus", Roemer walks and writes along a careful path between the extremes of otherworldly focus and that of textual relativism. Jesus is not "out of this world" but decidedly within it--the world of first century Palestine--with a prophetic critique of idolatry and a passionate concern for the fate of God's people. The received transcription of his visual metaphors is also trustworthy and challenging. What carries the impact of the Jesus narrative into the twenty-first century is the same human nature befuddlement with political and religious extremes, self-centered pietism, false trust of wealth, and war mongering that Jesus encountered in the first century. Or, as Pogo once taught us: "we have met the enemy and he is us." Jesus is the antidote to such fatal self-deception, and Carl Roemer is a trustworthy and profound guide into understanding his meanings."
We give Thanks and Praise to our Almighty Lord and Savior for the opportunity to expand God's Mission and Ministry in the Upper Marlboro/Prince George's County, Maryland community with the building of our new chapel!
Plans are for construction of the new chapel to begin Spring 2020.. The above photo is a rendering of what the chapel may look like. An updated rendering of the building is in the process of being drafted by our Architect, AREL, Inc.
