Palm Sunday: Sunday, April 14. We will have our palm processions at the beginning of each service, but they will be done differently for the two worship spaces. In the Historic Church, we will have a simple procession of those serving at the 7:30 a.m. service. For the 9 and 11:15 a.m. services, some of those standing closest to the middle aisle will be asked to hold a large palm, while the choir and those serving will process up the aisle. For the 9:15 Bethell Hall service, the service will begin in Sumners Hall and process to Bethell Hall. The 5 p.m. Bethell Hall services will start in the foyer and process into the worship space.
