Palm Sunday

March 24 @ 11:00 am

Worship with us at 11 a.m. this Palm Sunday!

The name comes from a story in the Bible in which Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem. The people of Jerusalem were super-excited that Jesus was coming to their city to celebrate a big religious festival. In their excitement, the people grabbed palm branches to wave around and threw their cloaks before Jesus on the road. The whole scene might have looked something like an ancient ticker-tape parade.

Today, we still commemorate Palm Sunday. It starts off a week of remembrance for Christians, often referred to as Holy Week. The week ends with the celebration of Easter, and throughout this week we mark the different events that led to Jesus’ Resurrection and Easter. This means that Palm Sunday is a kind of paradoxical celebration. The paradox is that we celebrate knowing full well what came next in the story, after Jesus’ triumphal entry: he was rejected, betrayed and crucified. Our Sunday morning service will be a joyous one, a feast of prayers, palms, and music!
