Prelude by Esther Seitz

Before we enter into a time of worship, let’s spend a moment to remember Jesus’ triumphant re-entry into Jerusalem, as a humble King, riding on a donkey… with THE CROSS on His mind. Friends, Jesus came as a King not to rule by force, but to give His life out of love for US. Because of Him, we live in victory. Because of Him, we are saved. “Hosanna in the highest!”

We encourage all you parents to check out these resources for your kids: Trinity’s Kid Church!

We invite you to read the following Responsive Reading, then worship with us through an online worship Playlist we put together for you.

Rejoice greatly, O people of Zion!
Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem!
Look, your king is coming to you.
He is righteous and victorious,
yet he is humble, riding on a donkey—
even on a donkey’s colt.
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

You are our God, and we will praise You!
You are our God, and we will exalt You!

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.
His faithful love endures forever!

Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King> Hosanna

SCRIPTURE

Ecclesiastes 12

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say,
    “I find no pleasure in them”—
before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars grow dark,
    and the clouds return after the rain;
when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men stoop,
when the grinders cease because they are few,
    and those looking through the windows grow dim;
when the doors to the street are closed and the sound of grinding fades;
when people rise up at the sound of birds, but all their songs grow faint;
when people are afraid of heights and of dangers in the streets;
when the almond tree blossoms and the grasshopper drags itself along
    and desire no longer is stirred.
Then people go to their eternal home and mourners go about the streets.

Remember him—before the silver cord is severed, and the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the wheel broken at the well,
and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Everything is meaningless!”

Not only was the Teacher wise, but he also imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.

11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails—given by one shepherd. 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them.

Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.

13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.
