Holy Week and Easter approach. Since we cannot gather together, this time will look a bit different than in years past. Download bulletins to follow and sing along to these upcoming liturgies, and find links to live streams on the Trinity website (some won't be ready until early next week, so check back).
This weekend, we celebrate the Sunday of the Passion / Palm Sunday with contemplative music and Matthew's account of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, final days, and crucifixion. Download the bulletin.

If you are comfortable venturing out, fresh palms are available in a box in front of the Trinity main entrance for drive-by pickup Friday from 9-Noon (please be sure to maintain distance if others are there, and wash your hands when you return home). If this is not an option for you, get creative! One option is to print and color your own palm leaves.  Or head into your yard and find any green branch as a palm stand-in. Wave them high and strong during the hymn at the beginning of Sunday's liturgy.
Next Thursday, 4/9 we remember the Last Supper during Maundy Thursday worship at 6:30 PM. We will celebrate Holy Communion as a community separated by distance but one in Christ. Households and individuals are encouraged to prepare an altar space with bread and wine/juice and be ready to take instruction from the pastors during worship.
On Good Friday, 4/10 at 6:30 PM, we will once again recount Jesus' final hours in a special service following the pattern of the Stations of the Cross, featuring special violin music and prayers for contemplation.
The Great Three Days of Easter culminates on Easter Day, 4/12, with live stream worship at 10 AM. We will have a special Thanksgiving for Baptism during the liturgy, so you are encouraged to have a bowl of water and a small altar ready to go.

Also a possibility for families and individuals to add to their celebrations is a special Easter Sunrise Breakfast time. This is an opportunity to experience and reflect on the meaning of Easter, not only as a one day celebration, but as a way of life every day. Enjoy this special time with family members, either in person if you live together, or set up a video chat time, to have breakfast, pray, read some scripture and have conversation. 
While we can't worship together in person, we still worship, and can share that experience with one another. How do you experience worship? Lin Russell sent us this picture of her worship space last Sunday. She found a quiet, secluded space in the woods and watched the live stream on her phone while following along in the printed bulletin. 
Send pics of your worship experience to Josh or share them on social media using #TrinityLynnwood and tagging @TrinityLynnwood on Instagram and Facebook
