As we enter the Lenten Season and approach Palm Sunday and then Easter Sunday, we would like to encourage you to use this special time to focus the attention of the residents on the Cross of Jesus Christ.
Our Easter Season Web Page has information and resources for both Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. The residents will certainly appreciate a service with elements of the rich Christian Tradition in which they were raised. Consider bringing in a large wooden cross and giving out fresh palm items on Palm Sunday.
This is an appropriate time to consider using a Christian Hymn as the
basis of a short Easter Sermon. Check out our Special Web Page to help
you in this regard. You may want to consider using the hymn sermonette "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross".

It is large-print, spiral bound and contains seven conversational messages with Scripture, color photographs, and prayers. More information is found at this link.
