Our observance of Holy Week will begin with other churches in Bronson Park at 10:00 a.m. with the “Blessing of the Palms.” As Jesus paraded into Jerusalem amid the cultural and political powers of his day, so we will gather together with other churches to share the blessing of the palms, scripture reading, and a short litany for the day. Following this very brief time together, we will proceed into our respective sanctuaries for Worship.

10:00 a.m. – ”Blessing of the Palms”, Palm Sunday Ecumenical Service in Bronson Park
