Several people have prepared material for this service. Maureen Luke (Precious) offers the following thought for Palm Sunday:
‘What Does Palm Sunday Mean To Me – Precious
Jesus displayed a humility that was at the heart of His ministry and it was even more evident as he rode into Jerusalem. He had nothing to prove because He knew who He was and why He was sent.
As I think about Palm Sunday, I am grateful.
Grateful that he didn’t turn back, grateful that He knew what was coming and went anyway, grateful that he loved me enough to complete His journey. I never want to take the sacrifice He made for me for granted, but appreciate every moment what it cost Him in order that I might have life. That is definitely Good News worth sharing!’

Here are the words to the songs we’ll be singing today.
One of the songs is brand new – written last week – here’s a video of Haydon singing it in case you want to spend time with it before Sunday.
