The week before Easter is a time when Christians reflect on Jesus’ deliberate movement toward the cross and tomb.  At Royal Redeemer, we gather for three events:

Palm Sunday (Sat., April 13, 5:30pm & Sun., April 14, 9 & 10:30am)  With palm fronds in hand we recount Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem just five days before he is crucified by the same crowds that welcome him on this day.  Children age 3 – Grade 4 will be invited to Kids Kount in the Great Room.

Maundy Thursday (April 18, 7pm)  We recount the Passover meal Jesus shared with his disciples, when he gave us Holy Communion as a way to remember and receive the benefits of his sacrifice for us.  Childcare will be available for ages 2-5 in the nursery.

Good Friday (April 19, 8pm) Through a series of readings and hymns, in about 45 minutes we recount the three hours Jesus spent on the cross up to his death.  We depart in silence and reflection, grateful for the love of God poured out for the world.  Childcare will be available for ages 2-5 in the nursery.
