Welcome to our Palm Sunday Online Worship. I am glad that you are here. As we celebrate the triumphant entry into Jerusalem, I invite you to find a green branch of some sort, or an artificial palm, or make one out of construction paper and wave it, hang it on your door, and we can still have a Palm Parade in a new way today.
Then, add a photo to our Facebook page Palm Sunday Worship post, and we will be together!
As you prepare your hearts for worship, light a candle and welcome God into your midst. enjoy this beautiful arrangement for our "altar" that Judy Gliebe would have brought to church! We can still enjoy the beauty!
PRELUDE: Hosanna Loud Hosanna! played by Amy Enloe
Welcome, Announcements, Centering Prayer and Sharing of Peace of Christ
*HYMN Hosanna, Loud Hosanna, played by Alan Klinect
1. Hosanna, loud hosanna, the little children sang,
through pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang.
To Jesus, who had blessed them close folded to his breast,
the children sang their praises, the simplest and the best.
2. From Olivet they followed mid an exultant crowd,
the victor palm branch waving, and chanting clear and loud.
The Lord of earth and heaven rode on in lowly state,
nor scorned that little children should on his bidding wait.
3. "Hosanna in the highest!" that ancient song we sing,
for Christ is our Redeemer, the Lord of heaven our King.
O may we ever praise him with heart and life and voice,
and in his blissful presence eternally rejoice!
