We celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. More than likely, there will be some palm branches to wave at our worship service on Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020.

Please join us for this special worship gathering.

Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels.[3]

In most liturgical churches Palm Sunday is celebrated by the blessing and distribution of Palm branches or the branches of other native trees representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem.

The symbolism of the donkey may refer to the Eastern tradition that it is an animal of peace, unlike the horse which is the animal of war.[1] A king would have ridden a horse when he was bent on war and ridden a donkey to symbolize his arrival in peace. Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem would have thus symbolized his entry as the Prince of Peace, not as a war-waging king. —Wikipedia
