Building Healthy Families: During the entry into Jerusalem, which would eventually lead to His torture and death, Jesus knew what the upcoming week would bring. Yet He did not waiver from His purpose. Take some time this week to reflect on your purpose: to what is God calling you? Along with those present on that first Palm Sunday, we also say today, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” Lutheran Family Service of Iowa (515) 251-4900

On May 22 we will have special speaker for Adult Bible Class - Special Adult Bible Class: Glen A. Emery Director of Development Lutheran Family Service of Iowa

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of holy week and we follow Jesus as He makes His journey to the cross. Of course, His journey to the cross started long before this. Based on the Epistle common to either emphasis this Sunday, one can argue that Jesus’ journey to the cross began in Mary’s womb. “But made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men” (Philippians 2:7). It was a fallopian tube, not the streets of Jerusalem that first welcomed the Savior on His way to the cross.
