Churches from around the country opened the Holy Week of Easter last Sunday commemorating the triumphant entrance of Jesus as a King into Jerusalem.

Better known as Palm Sunday, the day saw children and youths lead worship services in various churches in the country.

Caqiri/Nasole Methodist Church Sunday School Director Mere Gukibau said the day is one that is looked forward to by the children of the church as it was an opportune time for them to take part in the leading of the service from morning till afternoon.

“Palm Sunday is a day that we have our children leading the three service that we have on the day, they lead the service and take part in the full programme that we have set out for them,” Ms Gukibau said.

“We had prepared the children for the past three weeks and they had taken part on Sunday to show their parents what they have been learning since the beginning of the year in their respective Sunday school classes,” she said.

“On Palm Sunday children recited bible verses, performed skits and dramas, sang songs of worship and preached the word of God to the congregation.

“This also opens the holy week leading up to the commemoration of Christ’s death and resurrection on the third day.”

Mrs Gukibau said it was a different year altogether for their Sunday School ministry as they had included a moment for the children to seek forgiveness from the elders of the church and their parents.

“This year, with the thought of Easter, we had ensured that we opened the holy week by seeking forgiveness during our Palm Sunday service from our parents and the elders of the church,”

“We had our children sing a worship number while a Sunday school teacher, on everyone’s behalf, led us into seeking forgiveness from the church elders and parents.

“We believe that it was important for our children to take this step as we focus on Easter, a moment of forgiveness, reflection and the renewal of our faith.”
