Special Sunday

This Sunday is Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that begins the Holy Week. It is the day that we remember and celebrate the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus royal treatment. The hundreds of people shouted "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" 

On the heels of Palm Sunday, as we begin this Holy Week, may we constantly be reminded of its significance and value for our lives today. That very important day in history, when Jesus began His journey towards the cross.  We have so much to be grateful for this week.

In this Holy Week, may God direct our thoughts and attention towards what matters most, Jesus Christ our King.. Let's choose to focus on worshiping our Lord, thanking Him for the gift of His sacrifice, celebrating the power of the Resurrection, and the new life found in Him alone.

In Sunday morning's service, we will be observing the Lord's Supper.  What a beautiful time to partake and engage in this sacred ordinance. May our hearts be prepared to worship Him and celebrate His love and sacrifice.
