Palm Sunday ~ Passion Sunday
March 25, 2018

It is our custom at Second Congregational Church to begin Holy Week with the joy of Palm Sunday and then move into the story of the events of Holy Week all the way through Good Friday. We enter the sanctuary with excitement, waving palms and singing our Hosannas. From there, Scripture and song help us reflect on this holiest week of the Christian year.
