Holy Week – Palm Sunday
Lutherans have a long history of remembering the Passion of Jesus in midweek services during the Season of Lent. The more common practice, in history and in the experience of the wider church, is to read the Passion history on the first Sunday of Holy Week. As their members find it increasingly difficult to attend midweek services, Lutheran churches have begun to adopt this practice. This first Sunday of Holy Week becomes known as the Sunday of the Passion.
The suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus are the central truths of the Christian religion and the foundation of Christian faith. While we have no intention of eliminating Wednesday services during Lent, we hope this new custom may enable more of our members to hear the Passion account just as they hear the resurrection gospel on Easter Sunday.

Children’s “My Worship Notes” are included in another document. They can be used by children of any age to keep notes during the service.
