Home Worship for Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022

Our Home Worship service is much like our in-person service. As you prayerfully journey through Home Worship, we hope it is meaningful for you. 

Staying home is a form of loving your neighbor. You may be staying home for your own health but in reality you then become less of a carrier to others that you might come in contact with. 

If you are not comfortable attending socially distanced activities, please stay home and stay in touch! We hope you will feel close to God who is near even if we are far apart. May God Bless you and keep you.

Prelude: The Majesty and Glory of Your Name



Call to Worship for Palm Sunday

The story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem,

tells us that after his celebrated arrival.

He went into the Temple

and looked around at everything.

As we gather here for worship today

may it be with a sense that Jesus

has walked in too and is looking around.

May our eyes be open to see Him,

may our hearts be ready to be seen by Him,

may our worship be worthy of His presence,

and may we be transformed

so that we see the world through His eyes. Amen.

Lord, as we remember how Christ the King 
entered Jerusalem to the sound of joyful shouts, 
increase our faith 
and listen to our prayers, 
so that we may praise you every day, 
by living always in him. 
For he lives and reigns 
with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, now and forever. Amen.

Sermon: "Jerusalem"

Luke 19:29-46

As Jesus came to Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives, he gave two disciples a task. 30 He said, “Go into the village over there. When you enter it, you will find tied up there a colt that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say, ‘Its master needs it.’” 32 Those who had been sent found it exactly as he had said. 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 They replied, “Its master needs it.” 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their clothes on the colt, and lifted Jesus onto it. 36 As Jesus rode along, they spread their clothes on the road. 37 As Jesus approached the road leading down from the Mount of Olives, the whole throng of his disciples began rejoicing. They praised God with a loud voice because of all the mighty things they had seen. 38 They said, “Blessings on the king who comes in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens.” 39 Some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, scold your disciples! Tell them to stop!” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if they were silent, the stones would shout.” 41 As Jesus came to the city and observed it, he wept over it. 42 He said, “If only you knew on this of all days the things that lead to peace. But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 The time will come when your enemies will build fortifications around you, encircle you, and attack you from all sides. 44 They will crush you completely, you and the people within you. They won’t leave one stone on top of another within you, because you didn’t recognize the time of your gracious visit from God.” 45 When Jesus entered the temple, he threw out those who were selling things there. 46 He said to them, “It’s written, My house will be a house of prayer, but you have made it a hideout for crooks.” (CEB)


Offering and Offering Prayer

Giving is a part of our worship to God. Partner with us as we share God’s hope and healing to our community and beyond. Contribute here: Oceanview Give

Thank you for helping show Christ real and relevant to the world.

Offering Prayer: Triumphant God, we echo the shouts of “Hosanna!” as we relive the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and all that waits in the week to come. Like that first parade so long ago, we may have different ideas of what kind of a messiah we long to welcome. Many of us seek one who thinks like we think, who will wield power to meet our longings. As we give our gifts this morning, may we be of the heart and mind of submission. You know better than us the messiah that is needed for your kingdom to come on earth, as it is in heaven. In Christ, we pray. Amen. (Luke 19:28-40 & Luke 22:14-23:56)

Closing Hymn: The Holy City




Leader: This is a vision of the way it can be, the way it should be— Shouts of welcome, a joyful procession, a community celebrating together.

People: The same vision is offered to us today: We can welcome Christ into our lives; We can celebrate his transforming power.

Leader: How swiftly things changed back then, How swiftly we, too, can be distracted. 

People: May we hold fast to his vision of goodness— Peace from the practice of justice, equality from the practice of respect.

Leader: As this week unfolds,

People: We will let ourselves be overtaken by God’s love. We will pour it back out into the world. Amen!
