This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday, the day we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. It is also the beginning of our Holy Week services which will include our Palm Sunday celebration as well as a Good Friday service at 6.30 this coming Friday and our celebration services on Resurrection Sunday (Easter) at 7 am and 10.30 am. I would like to invite each and everyone of you to join us for this special week of services. I would also encourage you to invite your friends, family and neighbors to join us as well.
This Sunday our primary passage of scripture will come from John 12.12-26 as we study the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into the city. This is one of the few stories that we find in all of the Gospels and it is also good to look at the other accounts as well (Matthew 21:1-17; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-40) . Jesus entered the city that day with a purpose, he knew His time was approaching. He triumphantly rode in on the back of a donkey to fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 9.9. Join us this Sunday as we look to see what we can learn from this and the impact it can have on our lives.
