Palm Sunday Worship (in person & on Zoom)
Apr 2 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

First United Church of Arvada is open for in-person Worship in addition to offering our services over Zoom. For in-person services, masks are optional. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask or are not feeling well, we encourage you to continue to wear a mask on Sunday mornings or join us via Zoom. Request Zoom link here.

The nursery is open.  Elementary age kids will be invited to leave the worship service partway through to attend Worship & Wonder.  Kids are always welcome in the sanctuary with you or, if you prefer, you can bring your child(ren) to the foyer and still participate in the service, but with some extra wiggle room.

Today:

  • Children bring the palms forward during the first hymn
  • Holy Communion
  • Lenten Prayer Candle for Natural Disaster and Climate Change
  • Special Music from the Celebration! Choir
  • Kids decorate their bikes/scooters during the service for a bike parade after worship
Palm Sunday parade
Apr 2 @ 11:00 am – 11:30 am

On Palm Sunday (April 2), Christian Ed is planning a bike decorating time for kids in place of Worship & Wonder that day (scooters or other modes of transportation welcome, too).  Then after worship, we’ll take a short trek southward on the sidewalk along Simms.  It’s a Palm Sunday parade!  So, kids are asked to bring their bike or scooter that morning to decorate it during worship.
