Join First Presbyterian Church of Fort Walton Beach to celebrate Palm Sunday on April 14th, 2019. The Service will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Immediately following the Service, there will be refreshments and friendship time in the Fellowship Hall.
Palm Sunday is a holiday found in the Christian religion that occurs on the Sunday before Easter. The holiday celebrates the triumphant entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem, an event documented in all four gospels of the Bible. The name “Palm Sunday” comes from the palm branches that the crowd used to cover Jesus’ path when he entered Jerusalem.
Palm Sunday is exactly one week before Easter, which is when Jesus resurrected after being hung on a cross. Palm Sunday, often referred to as “Passion Sunday,” kicks off Holy Week which concludes on Easter Sunday.
Come and celebrate our Risen Savior! Join First Presbyterian Church of Fort Walton Beach on Sunday, April 21st, 2019 for Easter Worship! The Service will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Immediately following the Service, there will be refreshments and friendship time in the Fellowship Hall.
Join First Presbyterian Church of Fort Walton Beach for Maundy Thursday Service on Thursday, April 18th, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
The word “maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum, meaning commandment. On this night, the night Jesus was betrayed, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them, and shared a Passover meal together. On Maundy Thursday, we celebrate Holy Communion in remembrance of this Last Supper.
DiscipleFest offers worship, music, fellowship, and workshops as we celebrate our oneness in Christ. The event will take place on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. CST at Dogwood Acres Camp (3320 Harmony Rd, Chipley, FL 32428).
