Have a blessed Palm Sunday. Remember a week before he was crucified like a criminal, he rode into the city a king. –Unknown
According to Christians, Palm Sunday is the day that Jesus entered Jerusalem. Then he was crucified and three days later he was resurrected. You can read a good explanation of what Palm Sunday is HERE.
Next Sunday is Easter Sunday. Some people call the week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday “Holy Week.”
Easter services are like the Super Bowl for churches. It’s one of the most attended services of the year. There will be advertisements in the local papers and some churches will even advertise on billboards, the internet, television, and radio. Some people who never attend church will attend the Easter service, so it’s chance for churches to put on their best in hopes of attracting more people to church.
It’s also a great time for these people to start a relationship with God.
Some churches will add more services to their schedule so it’s easier and less crowded. Churches may even have a Saturday evening service for people who can’t make it on Sunday (or for people who just want to get it over with).
You should attend a service – just pick one – go observe and listen! See if people are friendly. See if you like the music and the message. You can do this. Besides, there will be a crowd there and you will probably be one of many visitors!
Palm Sunday’s thought; Life is full of ups and downs. Glorify God during the ups and fully trust in Him during the downs. -Unknown
Have a great week!
