Palm Sunday Services

Palm Sunday Services

Palm Sunday (March 25, 8:00am, 10:30am, and 5:30pm): This service begins by recounting Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem accompanied by shouts of “hosanna” and the waving of palm branches.  At the 10:30 service, weather permitting, we will gather in the Parish Hall where palms will be blessed and distributed and then process around the neighborhood, singing hymns that retell the story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem.  Back in the church and halfway through the Palm Sunday service the mood of the day shifts dramatically.  Indeed, Palm Sunday is also known as “Passion Sunday” because we hear, in a dramatic reading, the narrative of Jesus’ last supper, his betrayal by Judas, arrest, torture and crucifixion.
