Journey with us through Holy Week


Palm Sunday, March 29

We encourage all of the children to arrive at by 9:15 a.m. to get a palm branch to carry in to worship at 9:30.  We will walk around the sanctuary as the hymn "All Glory, Laud and Honor" begins.  The children’s choir is also singing that day.

On this night we celebrate Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. We listen to Jesus say the words we now speak at communion. We hear his command to love each other as he loves us.

After eating we will process to the sanctuary and eat a different meal in the Lord’s Supper.

We, the congregation of First Lutheran Church, proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament, calling people to new life and discipleship. We grow in faith, hope and love as a community of believers through worship, prayer and study.  We serve people in need by sharing God's love in our community and throughout the world.

We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story. 

Visitors are always welcome at First Lutheran Church in Red Wing.
