Welcome to NLCF’s online Worship Service for Palm Sunday. While we are not able to meet together in person, we hope and trust that God will meet with us wherever we are. So wherever you find yourself this morning, begin by praying with those you are with. Ask God to help you feel the presence of the Spirit in a special way despite our current situation.
To open our worship, read Psalm 34:1-3 out loud:
1 I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
2 I will boast only in the Lord;
let all who are helpless take heart.
3 Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness;
let us exalt his name together.
To help us worship together, use the following songs to sing to the Lord.
If you haven’t done so already, we want to invite you to worship through giving by using our online giving options. Please remember that even when our world is in crisis, the financial needs of the church are still present, and we can still give to God financially as an act of worship and to demonstrate our trust in the Lord.

For our Scripture reading today, please read Zechariah 9:9-10 out loud:
9 Rejoice, O people of Zion!
Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem!
Look, your king is coming to you.
He is righteous and victorious,
yet he is humble, riding on a donkey—
riding on a donkey’s colt.
10 I will remove the battle chariots from Israel
and the warhorses from Jerusalem.
I will destroy all the weapons used in battle,
and your king will bring peace to the nations.
His realm will stretch from sea to sea
and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.
Ask those you are with what they would like to pray for. In addition to those requests, please ask God:
– For protection and provision for our families and communities from the COVID-19 virus.
– For wisdom for the leaders of NLCF
– For healing for those who are sick.

Join us for our closing song
To close our time of worship, please read Hebrews 12:1-2 out loud:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
