Palm Sunday is coming!

Those of you who have experienced Holy Week at Custer Road know that Palm Sunday is a special day for our church! Typically at our services we have the children parade through the worship space waving palm branches while the congregation sings. It is one of my favorite days of the whole year and I’d be lying to you if I told you I wasn’t grieving missing out on this tradition this year. But God is good and we’ve been dreaming up a way to have a virtual parade! Here is what we need you to do:
  1. Pick a palm branch from the options below! You can craft one, print one, or go into your yard and pick a branch from your tree 🙂 No times for craft or leaf picking? Find a bandanna, a piece of fabric…get creative!
  2. Take a picture or video of your kids waving their palm branches!
  3. CLICK HERE to add your picture or video to our Google Drive by FRIDAY MORNING.
  4. Tune in on Sunday morning to our Facebook Page or website to see your smiling face on the live stream! We’ll use the pictures you provide to put together the most epic virtual palm parade there ever was!!

Click the image above to print and color in or paint your own Palm Branch!

 

Not in the mood to craft? You can print this palm branch as is by clicking the image above! You could even pull this up on your phone or tablet if you don’t have access to a printer!

Click the picture for instructions to make a hand print palm branch! No paint? You could use green construction paper! No green paper? White paper, notebook paper, whatever paper you have will work!

 

This one is super simple. Click the picture for instructions. If you don’t have popsicle sticks you could use a straw, a pencil, a wooden spoon…use your imagination!  Or- just wave the paper on it’s own!

However your family would like to represent a palm branch is great!  Real leaves from outside, a scarf from your closet- it all works!  Whatever you use, be sure you post your pictures and videos HERE by Friday morning so that you can be included in our parade!
