Preparation for Palm Sunday Service

Palm Sunday

The Lord be with you!

We are preparing for Sunday morning here, and I wanted to write to you and make sure that you have all the details on how you may participate.

If you go to our Facebook Page, you should be able to see our Livestream on Sunday morning. We’ll be testing and playing around with it the thirty minutes or so beforehand, but Lord willing, we’ll have it all up and going by 9 a.m. You can access it on a phone or tablet or computer. My suggestion is that you use a computer, or even better still is put it up on a bigger screen.

The Service of the Word

This Sunday we will be doing the Service of the Word portion of the Divine Service. That means the confession and absolution, Introit, Kyrie, Collect, Readings, and the like. We will also have the Palm Sunday Procession with Palms. We obviously cannot have the Lord’s Supper. But the Word will be proclaimed, God’s praises will be sung, and we will pray to our Lord for His mercy during this time of trial.

You may download and follow along in the bulletin by following the link below:

The service begins on page 184 of the Lutheran Service Book. The readings are as follows:
