Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem and the last week of the Lenten season. Jesus’ entrance marks his final week before his death and resurrection. We exclaim “Hosanna!” to express our joyous praise to the King and our humble plea for a Savior.

Maundy Thursday | April 14 @ 6:30 pm 6:30 pm Livestream available here

Maundy Thursday draws our attention to the last Passover meal Jesus shared with his disciples before his death. On this night Jesus instituted what we now call the Eucharist and washed his disciples’ feet in an extraordinary gesture of humble service.

This year we will join Church of the Cross -8140 Exchange Drive – for this night of remembrance.

Holy Week  Activities

Give: Children’s Easter Offering

Christ Church Kids are collecting money in their Giving Boxes throughout lent and then bringing their donations for the offering on Easter Sunday. Please mark donation boxes or envelopes clearly for “Eggshell Cambodia.” Your child can give it in the offering plate or to Mrs. Terrice. Eggshell Cambodia was established to provide protection and bring hope to children living in squalor and at risk of trafficking and exploitation. The ministry accomplishes this through addressing health issues and providing a pre-school education for young children who would otherwise be left at home alone while their parents are working.

Remember
  • Maundy Thursday Family Foot Washing (John 13:1-17). Grab a couple of towels.  Fill a large bowl or bucket with water and take turns washing one another’s feet and praying for one another after reading the scripture.
