3/25/18 – Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday is an Easter celebration that commemorates Jesus making his triumphal entrance into Jerusalem. The event took place one week prior to His resurrection. On Palm Sunday, the celebration quickly spread throughout the whole city. People even threw down their cloaks on the path where Jesus rode as an act of homage and submission. The palms we wave in our Palm Sunday celebrations represent the palms that were waved by the crowd and placed in Jesus’ path when he rode the donkey into Jerusalem.
Our Chancel Choir will present the Easter Musical,
“At the Cross”
by Craig Adams.
A power-packed list of familiar and best-loved worship songs and hymns. The combination of soul-stirring songs and heartfelt narration makes this Easter celebration one that you will not soon forget!
Palm Sunday, March 25th at the 11:00AM worship service.
3/29/18 – Maundy Thursday Service 7PM
Join us at 7:00 PM for our Maundy Thursday Service.
Maundy Thursday is observed the Thursday before Easter and commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified.
Maundy is our English word from the Latin meaning mandate. The Lord Jesus Christ on the night of His betrayal gave His disciples a new mandate or command. Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance of me.” Maundy Thursday serves as our opportunity to remember through faith, Jesus paid our price to redeem us from eternal death and give us eternal life.
We depart in silence. Reflect on Christ’s suffering to save us from the grip of Satan! Return Easter Sunday Morning joyfully, singing praises to the Only Resurrected Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
