(Please take this time during the prelude to quiet your hearts before God
and peacefully anticipate the movement of the Holy Spirit.

ENTRANCE (adapted from Psalm 118)

“Hosanna, Hosanna!”
(The children shall enter waving palms and will pass out palms to congregation)


Leader:   Holy God, we praise you for your Son, Jesus, who rode in triumph into the holy city of Jerusalem, hailed a King and Messiah by adoring crowds.

People:  May we, who continue to proclaim Christ as Messiah, Redeemer, Lord and King,

Leader:   May we be courageous and faithful to follow him in the way of suffering and the cross, lest we be numbered among the fickle crowd who turned their backs on your Son.

People:  Turn our hearts again this day to enter into Christ’s Passion and death so we may also enter into his resurrection and glory. Amen.

Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
