Palm Sunday is Tomorrow!

palm-sunday

 

The days leading up to Easter often have an understandably somber feel to them, particularly as we contemplate Jesus’ arrest, trial, and execution. It’s easy to forget that the week begins with a joyful event: the Triumphal Entry!

Sunday, March 14, 2019, is Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week. On Palm Sunday, we commemorate Jesus’ celebrated entry into Jerusalem just a few days before his arrest, trial, and crucifixion.

The “palm” in Palm Sunday refers to the palm branches waved by the adoring Jerusalem crowds who welcomed Jesus and proclaimed him King. The event is commonly referred to as the Triumphal Entry. Here’s the account from Matthew 21:1-11:

As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

“Say to Daughter Zion,
‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Sunday is Palm Sunday

The days leading up to Easter often have an understandably somber feel to them, particularly as we contemplate Jesus’ arrest, trial, and execution. It’s easy to forget that the week begins with a joyful event: the Triumphal Entry!

Sunday, March 20, 2016 is Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week. On Palm Sunday, we commemorate Jesus’ celebrated entry into Jerusalem just a few days before his arrest, trial, and crucifixion.

The “palm” in Palm Sunday refers to the palm branches waved by the adoring Jerusalem crowds who welcomed Jesus and proclaimed him King. The event is commonly referred to as the Triumphal Entry. Here’s the account from Matthew 21:1-11:

As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her.

From the Sermon Series: Genuine Love:

Pastor Kenny’s sermon from the Traditional Service

 

Rev. Kevin Haven’s sermon from the Common Ground Service.

Living and Sacrifice don’t go together. However, that is exactly what it takes to live the Good News of Jesus in our lives. Let’s learn how we can die to live and what we can do when we are yielded to Christ.

The Scripture was Romans 12:1-2

Sunday Sermon ~ June 9, 2013

living-sacrifice

 

June 9th Sermon ~ Living Sacrifices
Living and sacrifice don’t go together.  However, that is exactly what it takes to live the Good News of Jesus in our lives.  Let’s learn how we can die to live and what we can do when we are yielded to Christ.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”  (Romans 12:1-2)

Missed Sunday’s Sermon? Want to listen again?

May 12th Sermon ~ “Jesus-Savior and Lord”  (Philippians 2:8-11)

We believe in Jesus.  But what do we believe about Jesus?  There are two titles that must be acknowledged in our lives about him, Savior and Lord.  We don’t use those titles much today so what do they mean?  Let’s see this Sunday.

 

“And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death-even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  (Philippians 2:8-11)

Sing ‘n Celebrate with Time for Healing ~ April 7 at 7pm

When this SNC arrives, we will be one week past Easter. What a great time to celebrate the Risen Lord and all that means to us and every Christian!! Jesus’ words of “Fear not”are now more relevant than ever before.

Join us as we consider this message here in Fairfax, VA, wherever there are needs for physical, emotional or spiritual healing. Jesus would be overjoyed to see us trusting in His power to heal and glorify His Father.

If healing is needed, feel free to come forward when Pastor Kenny invites you to come to the Time For Healing.
