Sunday, March 25 @ 10am
Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–9), when palm branches were placed in his path, before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. It thus marks the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent.
Palm Sunday is about celebration and hope, met by empire and persecution. Palm Sunday is about confidence in our faith regardless of the trials that are coming. Come and celebrate with our children the invitation to be bold in our faith.
Thursday, March 29 @ Parkway United Church of Christ
6:30pm ~ Dinner
7:00pm ~ Worship
Maundy Thursday commemorates the Maundy and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. This meal is the last time Jesus spends with his disciples and he tells them what is to happen. It is the fifth day of Holy Week.
We’ll gather around tables outside the sanctuary of Parkway UCC for a simple meal catered by Athens Cafe and worship. We explore the meaning of the last supper and the power of breaking bread in our community. This is a very meaningful service that reminds us of both the sorrow and hope of the week of Jesus’ death. The service will close with an option for foot or hand washing as a way to offer love and service to one another.
Friday, March 30 @ 7pm
Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.
