Palm/Passion Sunday – April 9 at 10:30 a.m.
All are welcome to gather with us for worship on Palm/Passion Sunday. Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter, celebrates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. At First Church, we begin the service with a processional, waving palm branches. This Sunday is also often referred to as Passion Sunday, marking the beginning of the passion or suffering of Jesus leading to and including the crucifixion.
Professional childcare for children under 4 will be available during the worship service. The ushers will also have “Kids’ Worship Bags” available filled with quiet activities for children to play with during the service.
Join the children and youth on the 3rd floor after worship for a self-guided, meditative Walk Through Holy Week. Come see where Jesus cleared the Temple, walk through the Garden of Gethsemane, sit in the upper room with the disciples, imagine Jesus standing before Pilate, make a cross at Golgatha, and sit quietly in the tomb. Middle-Eastern light refreshments will be served.
Note: Coffee Hour will be served AFTER worship during the Walk Through Holy Week.
