DIRECTIONS FOR WORSHIP--Here’s how to join us for worship. Access is very easy.
Passion Play – As you are aware, the Passion Play will not be held on Palm Sunday and Good Friday this year due to the current restrictions. We have had some inquiries about showing last year’s performances. Unfortunately, due to legal licensing restrictions with regard to the music, we are unable to do so. However, we are excited we will be incorporating scenes from the Passion Play in our upcoming worship services.
Easter flowers – As many of you know, each year we have potted Easter flowers available to adorn our sanctuary and recognize a family member or friend. Some of you have already purchased these. We would like to continue this tradition with “virtual flowers.” Go to the website, www.trinityjoppa.org, to purchase your virtual flower for $10 which you can do “In Memory” or “In Honor” of a loved one.
Christ in Our Home booklets – We have had several calls about the Christ in Our Home booklets which are usually available at the Welcome Center. Good news!! We will be attaching the daily devotionals with our daily email update message starting today.
Corona Virus prayers – We realize many of us will be affected by the current pandemic and we want to keep praying for those in need, be it people who are ill, who are out of a job, who are struggling with bills or in need of food…So we would like to have you call or email Tom or Jan from our HEART ministry for prayers and assistance in finding help. We will be compiling a list of prayers for those in need to be posted for our congregation through our email and website. Please call the HEART ministry line at 410-679-4000 x129 for prayers, support and help. We are here for you and yours.
