Experience: As families enter the station, have
them tell each other things they celebrate about one another, such
as good grades, talents, or accomplishments. Then have them cheer
for their family.

Afterward, ask: How did it feel to have people celebrate
you? How did it feel to celebrate others?

Say: The Sunday before Easter is called Palm Sunday because
people waved palm branches to celebrate Jesus as he arrived in
Jerusalem. They also showed their excitement by shouting and
singing.

Have families write things their family celebrates on several
strips of green paper. Then have them glue the paper strips to the
paint sticks to create a palm branch. Set aside to dry.

Have families sit along the coat path. Then read aloud Luke
19:28-38.

Ask: How do you think the people felt when Jesus came to
town? How would it have felt to celebrate Jesus on that first Palm
Sunday? When have you been excited? How did you show your
excitement? How would you show your excitement if Jesus came to
town?

Say: Let’s try some of those ways right now to celebrate
Jesus.

Lead families in the ways they mentioned.

Then say: Many in Jerusalem celebrated Jesus’ arrival that
day, but there were others who were plotting his death. As you move
to the next station, wave your palm branches, shout praises to
Jesus, and celebrate Easter.
