|A Christ Caring People Who Gather Around Word and Sacrament, Yoked Together, In Personal Service to Christ in World Wide Missions
Please join us Sunday, March 29, 2015, for our 8:20 am or 11:00 am worship service. The message, given by Pastor Joshua Baumann is titled "A Pilgrim's Passion - The Crown on His Head" based on Psalm 132, St. Mark 15:16-20. Click to read the service bulletin.
They took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!” And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it. John 12:13–14
This day is called Palm Sunday as well as the Sunday of the Passion. This dual naming reveals a twofold emphasis. The service begins with a processional order—commemorating King Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. There He is beheld and welcomed by worshipers who have paved His pathway both with palm branches and articles of their clothing, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” Similarly, we wave our own palm branches with which we proclaim the glory, laud, and honor due our blessed Savior, who comes among us in His Word and Sacraments. Nevertheless, as that first Palm Sunday pageantry shortly gave way to the persecution of Passion Week. As the Passion narrative from Mark is read, our rejoicing is subdued, as we earnestly anticipate the joyful Easter acclamation eight days hence.
