From the Vicar
Ride On In Majesty
"Like an eighteen-wheeler careening towards an intersection, the crisis has come. You don't want to be on the wrong side of a big-rig, nor of Jesus. He's casting out the false rulers of this world. Better to get in line with the new administration than cling to the old, not because it's new, but because it's the only legitimate one. Sin, death, and the devil are counterfeit kings; their crisis has come. Our King is crucified, but His undergoing judgment brings the crisis that overthrows those darkness-loving liars. His power hides under the sign of His judgment, but in His cross lies salvation. His judgment draws you in so that you might believe in the Light and escape the darkness descending upon this world. Ride on in majesty, O King!"

Annual Easter Egg Hunt
 
Memorial Lutheran School playground
 
Easter Sunday, 1 April
10:20 AM
 
All children are invited, ages 2 through 5th grade.
 
Please meet in the school gym at 10:20 AM with your Easter basket! (during the Sunday School hour/Easter Breakfast)
 
6th-8th graders: If you would like to serve as a helper, please meet on the school
playground at 10:00 AM to help hide eggs.
 
Tell your children how Easter eggs remind us of the new life that Jesus won for us on the cross.
 
Easter Eggs Needed! 
Anyone interested in donating plastic, filled eggs, please leave your donations in one of the boxes located in the Commons or School Office by Sunday, 25 March. 
 
*Candy should be wrapped, peanut-free, and safe to eat/not a choking hazard for
children under 3 (i.e., no gobstoppers, laffy taffy, etc.). 
*Easter stickers are also a great idea for stuffing eggs.   
If you have suggestions about things that you'd like to see in the Memorial Messenger, please let the office staff know. We would love to hear from you.

Sincerely,
Rev. Dr. Scott R. Murray
Senior Pastor
