From Matthew 27
The Death of Jesus
45 From noon on, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. 46 And about three o’clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 47 When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, “This man is calling for Elijah.” 48 At once one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to him to drink. 49 But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” 50 Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice and breathed his last. 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised.

One Great Hour of Sharing
Easter Sunday, April 21
“You shall be called repairers of the breach”
In Isaiah 58, God issues a call and a challenge—to love one another more deeply by sharing what we have with those in need. One Great Hour of Sharing is our direct response to the ways in which God has called us to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief from natural disasters, food for the hungry, and support for the poor and oppressed.
Give to One Great Hour of Sharing—the single, largest way that Presbyterians come together every year to work for a better world.
Look for offering envelope in your Easter bulletin.

Start your day with Sunday's Call to Worship:
In the morning, O Lord, you hear our prayers.
In the light of this day we praise your name.
Through the abundance of your steadfast love
You have gathered us into your house.
In the holiness of your presence,
We bow down to worship and adore you.
Can you guess what the children learned about in Sunday School yesterday?
Will you be joining us for Easter morning breakfast?
Please sign up to tomorrow after both services to let us know what you can bring.
Our next Ask a Theologian question is "What do we know about Jesus in his youth?" See Sara Sadler's answer.
Here is some Monday morning inspiration.
On this Third Sunday in Lent we are meditating on a piece of Scripture from the Book of Romans.
Tomorrow in Sunday School children will be learning about Jesus feeding the 5,000.
Join us at 9:45 a.m.!
We will also be joined by guest preacher Rev. Leslianne Braunstein at both 8:30 and 11 a.m.
Spend some time with the charge we are saying at the end of our services during the season of Lent:
WE SHALL TAKE IT
WE SHALL BREAK IT
WE SHALL BEAR IT
WE SHALL SHARE IT
WE SHALL LIVE IT
WE SHALL GIVE IT
WE SHALL CHERISH IT
GOD SHALL PERISH IT. AMEN
From Debbie Dodson Parsons's message on Sunday:
Our truth is complicated. Within us is both faith and doubt, buoying us up and bearing us down, giving us courage and feeding our fears, supporting our weight on the wild seas of our lives and sinking us like stones.
That is why at the heart of our lives we need the one who speaks, “Courage, I am, do not be afraid.” If we never sank—if we could walk on water and skate in confidence and victory through all the storms of life—we would not need a Savior. Then we would not know who we are and whose we are. We would not know possibilities and the limitations of what it means to be a human.
Peter sank and cried out to Jesus. Jesus reached out his hand and saved him, with a word of grace and, yes, also a word of judgment, but not rejection.
He placed Peter back in the boat with the others. They would continue to the other side of the sea and back on the road following Jesus, holding onto those words they heard from the middle of a storm.
Courage, I AM, do not be afraid.

Happy first day of spring!

We got a photo of some of the LPC crowd on their first day in Cuba!
Recently in Sunday School the third, fourth and fifth graders learned about seeds and how Jesus compared planting seeds to the way people respond to his words.
They decorated pots, and teacher Stacie Markel took them home and planted some mystery seeds.
We look forward to seeing what our young gardeners end up growing.
Yes, it sure was early (6:30 a.m.), but this group looks so happy because they are heading to Cuba!
Thank you Kate Baker for this beautiful view of our church.
Today at church we had the commissioning of the Cuba mission team and the youth group dessert auction.
We had a busy morning with the Youth Group's Silent Auction and the commissioning of the Cuba Mission Team. Our prayers are with them as they start their adventure!
St. Patrick’s Day Silent Auction
After both worship services, upstairs in Fellowship Hall
Desserts, Art, Experiences
Benefiting our Youth to attend Summer Conferences
Bring your green! (Cash or Checks)
Seminary student Sara Sadler answers the first question in our "Ask a Theologian" feature. Today's question is from Frank Gasperini.
Happy Pi Day!
If you aren't celebrating today, don't worry. There will be pie at the Dessert & Silent Auction benefiting the summer youth conferences on Sunday, March 17.
Come on Sunday ready to buy a treat and help our youth.
Today, next week and in the coming months and years, people will come into this old building, needy and hungry for the word of God. Frustrated with the emptiness of their nets, they need the encouragement from the community of faith that when one leaves the shallow waters behind and puts out in the deep, there will be an abundance of grace and goodness that one could never imagine when standing in the shallow waters of the shore.
May the grief stricken find the peace that passes beneath their understanding. May the sick and weary find the strength of the one who can carry the awful weight of their burden. May the young discover that beneath the chaotic forces pulling them in this and that direction, God is working God's purpose out.
May we the church at Leesburg Presbyterian be ready to point each other to beneath the surface of things--to see and trust what others do not--the grace of God that hides in every situation and event of life.

With a ceremonial ribbon cutting by Evelyn Rollison, we dedicated our new worship preparation and restroom space yesterday!
We are so excited to have a ground floor restroom and a more convenient area for communion preparation.
Our LPC Girl Scouts did a great job helping out with the service today on this Girl Scout Sunday. They even earned a special patch while doing it. :)
From Debbie Dodson Parsons
Today I will officiate at the funeral of an honest-to-goodness saint of the Church. David was baptized and grew up at Leesburg Presbyterian Church and served as a custodian here with his mother for many years before his sister brought he and his mother to live with her in Destin, Florida. There, he became a beloved part of this beach community. He heard God calling him to serve and now he has heard his Lord calling him home. "Well done, my good and faithful servant".
After 26 years of collecting aluminum cans from the streets of Destin for local charities, 80-year-old David Wolverton is packing up his last batch of cans.
Don't forget to turn your clocks ahead an hour tonight!
We know it can be hard to spring forward, so the coffee will be ready at 9:30 a.m.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 17.
The Dessert & Silent Auction will benefit the summer youth conferences.
We are looking for people to sign up to donate a fabulous dessert. We are also looking for people with a talent or gift to donate. Could you donate an experience like a knitting class, music lesson or wine pairing? Send us a message!
All LPC Girl Scouts, help us celebrate Girl Scout Sunday March 10 at 11 a.m. worship.
Come and wear your GS sash or vest and meet in the sanctuary narthex at 10:45 A.M. to be part of the usher and acolyte teams!
