And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, "Hosanna to the Son of David!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!  
Hosanna in the highest!"
Matthew 21:9

Dear Via Family,

The pinnacle weeks of celebration of the gospel message are upon us!  What an incredible opportunity we have to proclaim this Good News in both word and deed. Our worship times are important as we do this together.   Here’s the whole scoop!


This Weekend - The Triumphal Entry
I challenge you to read Matthew 21 before attending Via this weekend. This Sunday marks the beginning of Passion Week - Christ’s suffering.


 
Our Good Friday services are a powerful reflection of Jesus’ suffering and crucifixion. Join us at either 5:00pm or 6:30PM. We will worship around a large cross and take communion together. You will not want to miss this night!  Our Easter services will be at our normal Sunday service times.

I want to ask you to do two things as we approach this weekend:

  • Pray for our services and for the guests that attend.
  • Invite people to these services to hear the Gospel. We have created postcard invitations for you to use for both our Good Friday and Easter services.

The Story
When we know God’s story, it changes everything:  who we are, what we want, and how we live. The Story is a course that will walk through the Gospel Story.  This 4-week course is for people new to their faith journey and for those wishing to grow in their understanding of the Gospel. It starts on Sunday, April 23 at 10:45am in room 4101.
