Worship for Sunday, March 7, 2021 (Lent 3; March Madness)

For Sunday, March 7, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “Jesus vs. Church” based on John 2:13-22. How often have you heard it said, “I’m spiritual, but not religious?” Sometimes the institutional church gets in the way of victory. Jesus pulls a Bobby Knight and throws some chairs to knock sense into the church. This is the third in our Lenten series, “March Madness.”

The shamrock puppets share some fun facts about St. Patrick with Pastor Park during the kids’ moment.

Sandy Koster, Kim & Jeff Wadewitz, and Kathi Beane lead hymns at the 8:30a Classic service. Zoe and Melissa de Boer lead music at the 11:00a Praise service.

We celebrate open communion during this service. All are welcome to participate! Please have something to eat and drink prepared to represent Christ – bread and grape juice or wine are traditional.

Onalaska UMC worship services for this Sunday are available only by live stream on our YouTube channel. Please don’t come to church. Instead, stay at home and “praise in place!”
