Sermon Preview - "Who is this Jesus Guy?"

Friends,

It's the beginning of Holy Week. Sunday is called Palm Sunday when the crowds gathered to praise
Jesus. Crowds gathered with the whole city asking Jesus' followers, "Who is this Jesus guy?" Some answers would have been: A good prophet? A priest? A King? A miracle worker? Things haven't changed today, these answers still exist for who Jesus was. 

Or could He be Lord of all? By the end of the week Jesus would answer that question by showing the city through the cross and empty tomb that He was Lord of all!

Holy Week continues with Maunday Thursday when Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper saying, "Take and eat; Take and drink! This is my body and blood shed for you!" Good Friday marks Jesus death. And Sunday is Easter when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus that changes everything!

Join us this Sunday for worship as we begin our services outside on the field next to the Journey Center and Preschool playground. Look for the donkey!

Peace and joy,
Vicar Jake

Courtyard Renovation

Friends, work began in our courtyard on Friday, March 20! We ask your prayers for a successful completion by Easter Sunday.

Thank you for your patience during this time of building! God is good, ALL the time!

CGLCS Business Directory

Many times in conversation with members of Christ’s Greenfield we hear the comment, “I didn’t know that John/Jane Smith did that." As a result, we would like to develop a Business Directory for the members of CGLCS. The directory would include contacts of congregation members who have or work in various businesses so that members could use their services. If you are a business owner or work for a company that provides services that a congregation member might utilize, please let us know if you would be interested in having your information in the CGLCS Business Directory. Contact Jeff Rodemeyer at jeff.rodemeyer@thrivent.com or (480) 620-9134. Once we have an idea of how many people wish to participate, further information on cost, layout etc. will be sent out to everyone and we will have a table in the courtyard after worship services to answer questions as well.
