Holy Week begins this Sunday with a new entrance—literally. This Sunday, as we celebrate Palm Sunday, we will process into the church with our palm branches.
For the 8 am service, we will gather in the narthex of the church with bulletins and palms to begin our service before processing to our seats.
For the 10 am service, we will gather outside in the parking lot with bulletins and palms. At 10 am, we will start our service (again, outside!) and then process together into the church. For those who are able, we will walk around the church on the Wildwood sidewalk to the front entrance and enter there. For those who prefer, you may use the parking lot entrance and shorten your walk.
Palm Sunday begins with joy and song, and flows into the Passion story of our Lord. We will hear the entire Passion story read from the gospel of Luke to prepare our hearts for the week ahead. With our different entrance into worship, we are acknowledging that this week is not only different but the highlight of our Christian journey together. So, together, let’s walk into Holy Week.
Join us this Sunday in person if you are able, or online through the livestream. Let us be together this Holy season.
Blessings and peace,
