What is Palm Sunday?
Palm Sunday is one of the most important days in the Christian calendar after Christmas and Easter.
Palm Sunday is the day we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, one week before His resurrection (Matthew 21:1–11). As Jesus entered the holy city, He neared the culmination of a long journey toward Golgotha. He had come to save the lost (Luke 19:10), and now was the time—this was the place—to secure that salvation. Palm Sunday marked the start of what is often called “Passion Week,” the final seven days of Jesus’ earthly ministry. Palm Sunday was the “beginning of the end” of Jesus’ work on earth.
In simple terms, Palm Sunday is an occasion for reflecting on the final week of Jesus’ life. It is a time for Christians to prepare their hearts for the agony of His Passion and the joy of His Resurrection.
Come celebrate Jesus’ triumphal return to Jerusalem on Sunday April 9th for Palm Sunday. Palms distributed. There’s no better time to visit us! Special Coffee/Fellowship hour to follow.
