Welcome to Laurel
On this joyous Palm Sunday we extend a hearty "Welcome!" Let us be in the same spirit as those who shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!" as Jesus entered Jerusalem.

This Sunday, April 13, Pastor Jerry King will preach from the scripture text Zechariah 9:9-10 and Matthew 21:1-11. The sermon title is "We Cannot See Through Walls."

This Sunday is Palm Sunday, a celebration with the waving of palm branches. Our Sunday School children and youth will sing the beginning anthem at the 9:30 and 10:45 a.m. services.

We extend a friendly welcome at each of our worship services:

8:30 a.m. - Jazz Style Worship with God's House Band
9:30 a.m. - Blended Worship with Laurel's Chorale
9:30 a.m. - Sunday School for all ages
