THE MEANING OF HOSANNA

Hosanna is often translated “Please Save Us.” It is a Greek word “ὡσαννά” that most scholars believe is the transliteration of two Hebrew words- יָשַׁע- “yasha” which means “to save or deliver” and אָנּאָ – “anna” which means “please, I beseech.” Other scholars believe its Hebrew roots come from a different verb tense of “yasha” הוֹשַׁ֣ע which means to cause or to bring about salvation. In this tense, hosanna becomes a command to bring about or cause salvation.

EASTER LILIES FOR EASTER SUNDAY

If you are going to place a lily in the sanctuary for Easter, please let the church office know no later than April 10. The names of those being remembered and/or honored will be printed in the bulletin on Easter Sunday. Slips are available in the pew racks. Please drop them in the offering plate at the rear of the Sanctuary.
