PALM/Passion SUNDAY WORSHIP
8:40am The Table
11:00AM Traditional Worship
Sanctuary & LiveStream

Palm Sunday, also called Passion Sunday, is the first day of Holy Week and the Sunday before Easter. On Palm Sunday, we commemorate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem by waving palm branches at the beginning of the worship service. Also part of the service is remembering the Passion, the suffering experienced by Jesus Christ on his way to the cross.

This service will be both in-person and live streamed at The Table at 8:40am and Traditional Worship at 11:00am. 

A NOTE FROM CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

The children will lead the Palm Sunday processional at the 11:00am traditional service. If your child attends our 9:45am Sunday School, the teachers will keep them in the Children’s Large Group area and prepare them for the 11:00am processional.

If your children do not attend Sunday school, please drop them off in the Children’s Large Group Area between 10:45am and 11:00am on April 10. After the processional, the children will go sit with their families. Our preschool children will return to the nursery.
