Palm / Passion Sunday
Worship at 8:45m and 10:00am
Save us, we beseech you, O Lord! O Lord, we beseech you, give us success! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord. The Lord is God, and he has given us light. Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar. You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God, I will extol you. O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. –Psalm 118:25-29
We will begin our worship by waving palm branches as we recall Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Then we shift into recalling Jesus’ final hours as presented in Mark’s Gospel.
Scriptures: Mark 11:1-11; Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29; Philippians 2:5-11; Mark 14:1 – 15:20
