Palm Sunday is April 10th, the Sunday before Easter.  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!"

What is Maundy Thursday?

 

The Thursday before Easter is known as Maundy Thursday. The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command” and refers to Jesus’ new commandment given to the disciples to “Love one another as I have loved you.” In the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) we believe that gathering for worship on this sacred night is an important part of Holy Week, the week prior to Easter. The Thursday night of Holy Week is the night when Jesus ate a holy meal with his disciples before his betrayal, trial, and crucifixion. At this meal, he washed the feet of his disciples, gave them a new commandment, and instituted communion. Maundy Thursday is on April 14th. We will meet together for a solemn worship service in the Sanctuary and via Zoom as we make ready for the resurrection. The service is at 7:00 pm.
