PALM SUNDAY Jesus the KING
The Young Children & Worship book tells the story about Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The first Palm Sunday was a parade unlike any other -- Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. It was a big deal, but what did it all mean?
As the church prepares to enter its most significant celebration with Holy Week and Easter, Palm Sunday is an exciting “kick-off” of sorts. Yet even as we wave palm fronds and prepare to worship, not everyone understands what the meaning behind the activity is. This message offers a simple overview of the triumphal entry, and why it is significant for us.
Jesus came to save, but not always in the way people expected. He came to deliver peace, but some of the people anticipated political rescue. If we are not careful, we can impose our own misguided hopes on Christ. When we do this, we miss the true joy that is to be found in Him alone.
Below are create expression ideas to let your child tell the story in their own way. We also have links to videos (both songs and books).
