Zechariah 9:9-10 - Rejoice to See You King

Zechariah 9:9-10 - Rejoice to See Your King

At Lord & Savior Ev. Lutheran Church on Palm Sunday,  April 14th, the service will feature the school children (K-8) singing. Pastor David Carlovsky will preach on the Old Testament lesson, Zechariah 9:9-10. The focal point of the day is the coming of our Palm Sunday King, who brings joy to Jerusalem and all the people as he establishes his kingdom — with a message of peace between God and man. Palm Sunday is a day that brings to mind the exuberance of the people. So Pastor Carlovsky’s sermon that day will highlight the first word of the text: “Rejoice!”

The sermon theme will be:  "REJOICE TO SEE YOUR KING!”

  1. In the way He comes!

  2. In the message He brings! 



Holy Week Sermons

During Holy Week, the congregation will hold services on both Maundy Thursday and Good Friday (both at 7:00pm). Continuing the “three word” theme that the congregation has used throughout Lent, on Maundy Thursday (April 18th), Pastor Carlovsky’s message will highlight two three-word phrases from the Lord’s Supper: "TAKE AND EAT!"  "TAKE AND DRINK!” (Matthew 26:26-28). Good Friday will focus on what are perhaps the most famous and familiar three words that Jesus spoke: “It is finished!” (John 19:28-30).



Luke 24:6-7 - Alive, on the Road to Emmaus

The congregation will hold two services on Easter Sunday, April 21st. The Easter Sunrise service (at 6:30am) will finish up the "three words” theme, with the triumphant message of the angel in Luke 24:6-7: “He has risen!” The congregation will hold an Easter Breakfast after the Sunrise service. The 9:00am Easter Festival service will take us to the afternoon of the first Easter, with Jesus on the road to Emmaus.

The theme will be “Alive, on the Road to Emmaus!”
