Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, when we shout “Hosanna!” and “Crucify him!” – two contradictory cries in the ears of Jesus. One is a hopeful hail of Jesus as king, the long-awaited Messiah who will deliver God’s people from oppression. The other is a call for his execution, perhaps driven by anger or a sense of betrayal at seeing this “king” in custody, beaten, and seemingly powerless.
The liturgy of Palm Sunday is a condensed version of the walk to the cross. In these last Lenten days, explore and experience that walk by joining us in worship throughout Holy Week. Fill in the details of the narrative. Let the ritual take you deeper into why “Hosanna!” and “Crucify him!” still ring true. Come, and you will discover “He is risen!” to be the greatest truth of all. Read more below to learn more about the services we observe throughout Holy Week and on Easter Day.
