Would a parade for Jesus be announced today in our city? If so, would you attend? Imagine. . . What if all the churches decided to cooperate, agreed upon a time and date, set the music in place, arranged some sort of a ticker tape parade (modern-day palm branches)– How many would show up? We could experience what occurred on Palm Sunday sometime around 30 A.D. Actually it’s been done recently by many churches in New Paltz, New York, led by the local Lutheran Church.
Palm Sunday begins HOLY WEEK, the most important week for civilization, in the opinion of believers. It is actually a war march rather than a parade, and each step will be described in the services this week. Following is the schedule:
PALM SUNDAY Worship at 10:30 a.m.. Sunday School at 9:15 a.m.
MAUNDY THURSDAY Worship Service at 7:00 p.m.
TGIF: GOOD FRIDAY ONLINE SERVICE at 7:00 p.m.
SILENT SATURDAY PRAYER VIGIL – SIGN UP FOR YOUR SLOT (call the church or sign up this Sunday in person)
EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE ON THE PATIO at 645 a.m., followed by breakfast on the patio
EASTER WORSHIP SERVICE at 10:30 in the SANCTUARY
HALLELUJAH! Praise God for the Son of David! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the LORD! Praise God in highest heaven!
