This Sunday, March 25th, we will acknowledge one of the great events in the life of Jesus. We will celebrate Jesus as He enters Jerusalem in fulfillment of prophecy and is proclaimed King of Israel. We commonly refer to this Sunday as Palm Sunday, because the people were so excited that Jesus was coming, that they cut palm braches and made a carpet for Him as He entered the city. Many also took of their coats and put them down to enhance His pathway! This event has great significance as we consider His kingship and our acknowledgement of His benevolent rule over our lives. I hope you will join us, and invite others as we see God’s plan to prepare the world for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!

Key verse for this week: “The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!” (John 12:12 & 13)
Have a King-filled week,
