Preparation for Sunday, May 3

The Lord be with you!

We are preparing for the 4th Sunday of Easter, and I wanted to write to you and make sure that you have all the details on how you may participate.

If you go to the above page, you should be able to see our Livestream on Sunday morning. We’ll be testing and playing around with it the 10 minutes or so beforehand, but Lord willing, we’ll have it all up and going by 9 a.m. You can access it on a phone or tablet or computer. My suggestion is that you use a computer, or even better still is put it up on a bigger screen.

The Service of the Word

This Sunday we will be doing the Service of the Word portion of the Divine Service. That means the confession and absolution, Introit, Kyrie, This is the Feast, Collect, Readings, and the like. We obviously cannot have the Lord’s Supper. But the Word will be proclaimed, God’s praises will be sung, and we will pray to our Lord for His mercy during this time of trial.

You may download and follow along in the bulletin by CLICKING HERE.  There is also a download button on the church website at https://holycrossrocklin.org/.

The service begins on page 151 of Lutheran Service Book. The readings are as follows:

Readings
1st Reading: Acts 2:42–47
Epistle: 1 Peter 2:19–25 
Gospel: John 10:1–10

Hymns
692 Praise to You and Adoration
709 The King of Love My Shepherd Is
740 I Am Jesus’ Little Lamb

Bible Class

We are continuing our study of Male and Female, and we are nearly through chapter five of the book of Ephesians.  We’ll start with Verse 28. I hope that all of you are able to join us for that at about 10 a.m. tomorrow morning.

 Upcoming Town Hall and Voters’ Meeting

We are having a Town Hall meeting today at 4:00 p.m., and we will be having a voters’ meeting on Saturday, May 9 at 4:00 p.m. In preparation for both of these events, the planning council has prepared a survey. I hope you will take a moment to fill it out.

 Survey for Town Hall & Voters’ Meeting

Questions and Answers have been developed from the responses we have already received.  They are posted  at https://holycrossrocklin.org/member-resources/  and Levi sent an email to our members last night with the links and the agenda for this afternoon.
