Palm Sunday is upon us! Palm Sunday, one week before Easter, is when the church traditionally celebrates Jesus’ coming to Jerusalem one last time and people spreading palm branches on the road to welcome him.
It is also the last Sunday of the series we’ve been exploring during “40 Days of Faith,” called “The Upside-Down Love of Jesus.” It has been a thought-provoking and fun series for all of us at RiverKids and RiverYouth. There is one last story to share and afterward we will wrap up the series by reflecting back on all the stories of Jesus’ Upside-Down Love. The kids in the Elementary and Youth groups will be given a chance to write and draw their reflections, which will be displayed on the 13th Floor on Easter Sunday.
As we wrap up the series, we have created an “Upside-Down Love of Jesus” Storybook for kids to take home. It has all six stories we’ve heard this season, with paintings and icons as illustration. We hope your families will enjoy re-reading the stories together!
