Aurora church kids to parade with palm fronds to open holy week service

AURORA, Ill., March 21, 2021 — Children will parade with palm leaves to open Easter holy week on Palm Sunday, March 28, at Aurora Advent Christian Church, 905 N. Edgelawn Ave. in Aurora.

Rev. Matt Mull, senior pastor, said children will carry palms in a procession opening the 10 a.m. worship service.

Holy week events continue on Good Friday, April 2, with Tenebrae services at 6 and 7:30 p.m. According to Rev. Mull, his message will focus on the seven last sayings of Jesus on the cross. Tenebrae, an ancient Good Friday service, increases darkness by gradually extinguishing candles to symbolize the coming darkness of Jesus’ death.

Communion will be celebrated at both services. Congregants may choose to come forward to receive elements, remain seated and use a sealed cup provided or join the service online at home.

Reservations are encouraged for in-person attendance. E-mail the church office at ACoffice@AuroraAdvent.org with number of persons expected to attend.

Concluding holy week is Easter Sunday worship is at 10 a.m. April 4. Rev. Mull will continue his sermon series on Joseph.

The public is invited. Parking is free. Visitors are asked to wear face masks and practice social distancing and other pandemic precautions. Call (630) 896-1963 or visit AuroraAdvent.org for more information.
