For many years the churches of Silverton, Oregon met on Palm Sunday to worship together. This year we are bringing back that tradition. In partnership with Immanuel Lutheran, First Christian, Oak Street, Silverton UMC, and Silverton Friends, we will joining together for a community celebration.
The blessing of the palms and processional through Silverton will begin at First Christian Church (403 N. 1st St.) at 10am and end at Immanuel Lutheran (303 N. Church St.), where worship is planned to begin at 10:30am. After arriving at Immanuel, we will gather in their sanctuary for a special Palm/Passion Sunday service with special readings, music, and communion focused on Jesus Christ. Afterwards, we will fellowship together around cookies/cinnamon rolls and coffee.
We are excited to join together with our community for this event! Plan to come and wave a palm branch as we walk the streets and celebrate together!
Please Note: There will be NO service at Silverton Friends Church on April 9th as we are encouraging everyone to attend this special service!
