Palm Sunday Worship

Sunday, April 9

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. It is a commemoration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, coming in peace and riding on a donkey. Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem coincided with the Jewish festival of Passover. He was met by crowds of followers and supporters who lined the road into the city and waved branches cut from palm trees. They laid palm fronds on the road and even laid down cloaks for Jesus to ride over. This entry into Jerusalem fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies promising that God’s Messiah would enter the holy city and go to the temple.

St. Peter Lutheran will observe our tradition of reenacting Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem with palm branches, singing, and with our special guest – “Minnie” the donkey. The Adult Choir will sing at both services the anthem “Lift High the Palms”. Worship is at 8 and 10:30 a.m.
