Join us this Sunday morning, April 5, 11:00 a.m. at www.facebook.com/irvineucc for a special Palm Sunday worship service.
Enjoy the beautiful music, familiar faces and a couple of surprises, engage with scripture and prayer and be ready to shout ‘Hosanna!” at the blessing of the palms.
If you can’t get a palm strip/leaf from your yard, you are welcome to drive through the church parking lot where we will have palms out and available for you to pick up, beginning Thursday afternoon, April 2.
