Palm Sunday Intergenerational


Call to Worship

One: We come to prepare for the holiest of weeks.
All: We will journey through praise, with joy on our lips; we will travel through betrayal and death,
cradling hope deep in our hearts.
One: Jesus leads us through this week, and we will follow, for he is the life we long for, he is the Word who sustains us.
All: We wave palm branches in anticipation, we lay our love before him, to cushion his walk
One: Setting aside all power, glory, and might, Jesus comes: modeling humility and love for all of us.
All: Hosanna! Blessed is the One who brings us the kingdom of God. Hosanna!

All we are, we lay it down,
for you, our God and friend;
Take our lives into your hands,
here we are to send.

Search our hearts, and you will find
willingness to serve
For your cross has covered us
with grace we don’t deserve.
