Following ancient tradition for Palm Sunday, we will process into the Sanctuary together, singing and carrying palm branches. What a fun way to start our 10 a.m. worship service on Palm Sunday, April 5!
Children will enjoy gathering with us in the Atrium for this exciting remembrance of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem just before his Passion. Everyone gets a palm branch that may be taken home as a remembrance of this day. Many people place the palm over the front door as a blessing for all who enter the home!
You can read more about what happened that first Palm Procession starting with Luke 19:28. The Bible tells us Jesus had been preaching and teaching in villages as he made his way to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. When he got to Jerusalem, he continued to teach in the Temple in the days before his arrest, crucifixion and resurrection. For Christians, these events form the climax of Jesus’ life on earth — and the core of our faith!
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, leading up to Easter. Read more about Easter and what we’re doing at PEACE.
Palm Sunday starts Holy Week
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” — Luke 19:38
Holy Week also concludes the church’s season of Lent. It’s a time we use to reflect humbly reflect on the many ways we fall short of living the way Jesus lived. We also find hope and inspiration in God’s enduring promise of love for us, no matter what our flaws may be. Lent is a time of spiritual journey while we prepare for the spiritual renewal of Easter.
