This year, we are inviting everyone to participate with us online each day of Holy Week. Beginning on Palm Sunday and ending on Easter, we will be providing a daily resource for you to watch and a passage of Scripture to read on your own. Just check this page each morning for the latest devotionals, passages, and readings and follow along as we experience Holy Week together. Our prayer is that this will be a special week for you spiritually as we remember and celebrate all that Jesus did for us.
Looking for a guide to help explain Holy Week to your kids? There’s a great resource by Kids Read Truth that you can download here.
Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week. On this day, we remember when Jesus entered into Jerusalem and received a special reception. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town, a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, treating Jesus as their King.
In Matthew 21:12-17, Jesus enters the Jewish Temple and creates quite a disruption in the Passover festivities. Today, Andy Lowry will be sharing about how Jesus needs to interrupt our “traditions” sometimes so we really connect with Him.
In Matthew 26:1-2, Jesus predicts his own death to the disciples. Today, Stephen Sowell shares about how Jesus’s prediction has the potential to change the way you think about Easter and how we live in our daily lives.
In Matthew 26:14-16, Judas Iscariot offers to help the chief priests take down Jesus for a large sum of money. Today, Whit Smith will be sharing about how one of the darkest scenes of Holy Week provides us with two incredible invitations that if accepted can bring true riches and joy into our lives.
Traditionally, the church has called this day Maundy Thursday. “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word for “command,” and refers to Jesus’ commandment to the disciples to “love one another as I have loved you.” It is a day to remember when Jesus shared “The Last Supper” with his disciples and then washed their feet. Today, we will follow the Jones family as they show us how to celebrate communion with your family and friends.
In Matthew 27:57-66 we find ourselves waiting, caught between the crucifixion and the glorious resurrection. Courtney Rue explores what we can learn about this day of sorrow and how the burial of Jesus changes everything, bringing hope into even the most hopeless of days.
