Upcoming Events

Mid-Week Lenten Services Continue – April 10 – Noon,
Service of Word and Devotions, “We’re Marching to Zion”.

Palm Sunday – April 14, 2019 Palm Sunday’s liturgy begins with a palm procession, commemorating Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The tone of the service changes as we meditate upon Jesus’ passion and death. Because this story is so central to our faith, we hear Luke’s account of the passion on Palm Sunday and John’s version on Good Friday. Though Jesus is obedient even unto death on the cross, he is exalted by God. We gather to remember his offering for the life of the world, and to be fed by his life-giving mercy. Holy week will culminate in the celebration of the Three Days of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection. We will gather outside, weather permitting, for the blessing of the Palms.
