Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday


Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, which occurred several days before his death. As he rode into the city on a donkey to participate in the festival of Passover (a Jewish holiday celebrating God’s deliverance of the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt), the people of Jerusalem waved palm branches and spread them on the road in front of him, saying, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel” (John 12:13). Today, we understand the people had certain expectations for Jesus as their King and Savior—expectations he would not meet in the way they anticipated. 

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday


On Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, the emphasis is on the Last Supper—a Passover meal Jesus shared with his disciples the night before his death. On this evening, Jesus surprised his disciples by washing their feet, a task that was normally done by a servant. Afterwards he told them, “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you” (John 13:15). During the meal, Jesus took bread and wine and blessed them. He broke the bread, saying “This is my body, given up for you” and offered the wine saying “This is my blood, poured out for you … Do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19-20).

We will celebrate Maundy Thursday with a message from Pastor Terry Feix and taking part in communion. Maundy Thursday is an opportunity for us to set our minds on Christ leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Good Friday Experience


Good Friday focuses on the Passion of Christ—Jesus’ trial, crucifixion, death and burial. Mourning, fasting, and prayer have been its focus since the early centuries of the church. It is the most somber service of the year. Church services revolve around reading the accounts of Jesus’ suffering and death. Often, services are left in darkness with only a simple cross on the altar—symbolizing Christ’s burial and the seemingly lost hope of the Jewish people.
