PALMS and an EASTER EGG HUNT! Sunday, April the 14th
Children and Youth of all ages will be included.
Palm Sunday, April the 14th is a day of celebration starting with the waving of palms at the 9:30 a.m. service.  Children need to arrive at 9:15 and go to their Sunday School classrooms to line up and receive palms and instructions for the service.   Children and youth will sing the beginning anthem, He Is the King of Kings and Hosanna, and then return to their classrooms for  Sunday School, an Easter Egg Hunt and a special snack/treat.   Due to the extra activities, the Sunday School time will be extended, and end with the waving of palms again at the 10:45 service.

We do a separate Easter Egg Hunt for each age group, so the extra time is needed to  allow each group to complete all the activities.  We provide a bag to each child to collect their eggs.

After the waving of palms at the 10:45 service, we will recess, and children will be dismissed from their classrooms. In that way, treats received can be collected before leaving. Please come be a part of the Celebration of Palm Sunday!
