Palm Sunday was the day when Jesus entered into Jerusalem. It was the first day of the last week of his life. Palm Sunday shows Jesus being hailed as king by his disciples. By the end of the week the crowds would be calling for his death. Palm Sunday shows us the strength and dedication to God which Jesus demonstrated. Our Palm Sunday worship will be held on April 14. We will celebrate and remember this day with palm branches, Holy Communion and hearing this ancient story once again.
To non-Christians, Holy Communion might seem rather silly. We gather to hear some words, eat a bit of bread and drink a sip of wine. But to us, this silly activity has the greatest importance. It ties us to Jesus’ ultimate act, just as when Jesus first did this he tied it to the ancient festival of the Passover. This meal ties us to Jesus and to believers of all ages. We believe it holds up Christ’s promise of forgiveness, salvation and his eternal presence. Join us for our Maundy Thursday meal at 7:00 p.m. on April 18.
Jesus life came to an end on the cross, and we gather to give witness to his sacrifice, to remember and to pray. Our solemn
worship begins at 7pm and ends in silence, as we wait for the tomb to be opened and empty again on Easter Morning.
Jesus is Risen, and the world is changed! We celebrate with lots of special music, with joyful singing, spring flowers and a celebration of everlasting life!
