Palm Sunday

For the past several weeks in worship, we have focused on the season of Lent. We have used this time for self-examination and reflection as we prepare for Easter. This Sunday we celebrate Palm Sunday and the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. At our 8:15 service, I will reflect on Matthew 21:1-11, which tells of his journey.

At our 9:30 & 11:00 services, we will enjoy the presentation of the Chancel Choir's Spring Cantata, The Gift of Life, by John Rutter, which is a celebration of life itself. These services will also feature our traditional Children's Palm Processional.

We hope that you will join us at one of these very special Holy Week services Sunday morning.
