Can it be Palm Sunday already?  Didn’t we just celebrate or Lord’s birth???Choir Palm Sunday 2015 _DSC_0162

Yes- we’re there.  The Lord is coming!

On Sunday March 20, we will “sing hosanna” to our Savior by worshiping in music.  During both services, our Choirs and Praise Team will lead a musical journey through Holy Week.  Traditional  hymns and contemporary praise music will be sung by the choirs.  The music to be “presented” will be familiar to most of the congregation, so sing along and join in the worship.

This cantata will lead our worship at both the 9:30 and 11:00 services, and there will be no sermon this week.

 

Pre-Prayer for Worship

The cantata is entitled: “The Journey of Jesus During Holy Week.”  Not necessarily a “flashy”name, but our focus is on the Name of Jesus!

Here’s an outline of the cantata…

1:  The Entrance into Jerusalem

  • Hosanna (Praise is Rising)
  • He is Exalted
  • The Palms

2: Jesus Speaks to His Disciples

  • The Lord’s Prayer
  • The Alabaster Jar
  • Jesus is the Cornerstone
  • This is How We Know What Love IsPalm2014_2003

3: Holy Thursday

  • The Upper Room
  • Thy Will Be Done

4: Good Friday

  • Via Dolorosa
  • At the Cross Hallelujah!
  • Where You There?

5:  Easter

  • He Is Risen
  • Because He Lives

 

Music will guide the worship, but everything will be held together by scripture.

May this be our prayer for this special day…

Let all creation shout!

Let us wave the palm branches high:  Jesus is coming!!!

He comes in humility to claim God’s own.

By His grace, may He claim us this day and heal our hearts!

Hosanna to the Son of David

Hosanna to the blessed Son of God!
