Remembering Jesus with Chicks and Palms

We need your help to make our Palm Sunday chicks.

On Sunday, April 13, we will gather in the Cutler Memorial Garden before the 10 am service for the blessing of palms, as we hear the story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. The crowds that greeted him there waved palm branches in the air, as will we. And our children will also carry little chicks (bread rolls decked out with beaks and ribbons) as a reminder of that day and week. These are not Easter chicks; rather, they remind us of Jesus’ last week in Jerusalem, when he looked out over the city in sorrow, saying,

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!”  (Matthew 23:37)


Children and parents are invited to come to church on Saturday, April 12,  at 9:30 am to make the chicks for our grand procession on Sunday. Join Miss Emily and others to help us get ready for the next day.
