  Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday Worship

Walk with Jesus as we enact "The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark" during both the 8am & 10am worship. We will begin outside in front of the church (weather permitting) or in the Parish Hall. Please help yourself to a palm branch and cross.

Then after the 10am service, we'll take a walk through the Parish Hall for several inactive Holy Week activities. We will have the following stations:

Garden of Gethsemane – Make a prayer cube to take home; spend time each day to reveal a different prayer

The Last Supper Children will experience the ritual of communion with bread and wine (grape juice)

Denying Christ – “Peter denied Christ three times”-What was it like to be Peter? For Jesus?

Foot Washing An act of love Jesus did for his disciples

Sin Station – “Christ died for our Sins”- Sins can be written and placed in a bowl which will be burned on Good Friday

Good Friday Why is it called Good Friday?

Join us this Sunday for our special Palm Sunday worship and inter-generational event!

For pastoral care issues that may arise, please call Pastor Dana Runestad, Interim Rector at 734-765-1141 .
