Have you ever wondered what Christians are celebrating this week? Holy Week is the period of time from Palm Sunday (observed the Sunday before Easter) to Easter Sunday. During this week, Christians celebrate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the final week of his life, his crucifixion and death, and finally, on Easter Sunday, we celebrate - HE IS RISEN!
The resources you'll find here are designed to help you understand and observe Holy Week. It's our hope and prayer that if you're exploring Christianity, these resources will lead you to an understanding of the hope that's found in Jesus Christ - the hope that we celebrate this week. If you'd like to know more about that good news, please click here.
If you're already a Christian, our prayer is that these resources will help you to better understand and trust in what Jesus accomplished on the cross. We hope that these resources will help you respond to the grace of God by worshiping him in every area of your life.
