Jesus’ Triumphal Entry
Characters: Narrator, Jesus, Owner, Disciples (at least 2), the crowds, and of course, the donkey
Props: Coats or cloth to put on donkey
(Jesus and disciples walk to the front of the room)
Narrator: He was going on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. When He approached Bethpage and Bethany, near the mount that is called Olivet, He sent two of the disciples, saying,
Jesus: (pointing to where the donkey is) Go into the village ahead of you; there, as you enter, you will find a colt tied on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of it.'”
Narrator: So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them,
Owner: Why are you untying the colt?
Disciple: The Lord has need of it.
(owner nods head in agreement)
Narrator: They brought it to Jesus, and they threw their coats on the colt and put Jesus on it. As He was going, they were spreading their coats on the road.
(Jesus walks around with the donkey while crowd is praising Him)
Narrator: As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, shouting:
Crowd: Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!

6TH GRADE SPIRIT
“Why are we attending a Lutheran church?” “Have we always been Lutheran?”
“Will we always be Lutheran?”
These are some questions as you may hear as a parent of a child going through faith education here at All Saints. During their 6th grade year, our students begin to piece together some of the answers to these and more questions.
This milestone helps them to take a look at, with the help of their parents and other loved ones, their faith family tree. They will create a tree showing how they came to be part of All Saints Lutheran Church. It will also help them as they begin to examine their own faith lives during the 3 years of Confirmation. Confirmation is something that helps you understand how you connect with God and with the church.
This milestone is meant to begin a conversation about faith and what it means to each of us and our family. It is literally a time to remember your own baptism and “confirm” the faith that our parents and our church handed down to us.
If you would like more information regarding this milestone, please contact Pastor Kristin or Joe Schwartz.
What is 6th Grade Spirit?
This is a crucial period in the life of a 6th Grader. At this time of the year, they have discovered that they are the leaders at their school and are beginning to gain more independence. Soon they’ll be experiencing life in middle school and more opportunities to make choices on their own. Here at All Saints, we offer “6th Grade Spirit”, which is designed to assist the family in helping these young people in making the best faith-based decisions possible when faced with new challenges. This experience is designed for our ‘tweens to discover him or herself, while continuing to grow in their relationship with Jesus, through the guidance of caring adults.
The class, which meets at 9:00am Sunday in the YO Zone.
Families are encouraged to join the class at any time.
One on One Sunday School
"One on One" Sunday School
Some children learn best in a smaller consistant class environment...some would benefit seeing the same teacher and shepherds every week! Some children are "born leaders" and would love to share their know-how with other children.
All Saints has a dedicated classroom for children who might learn better in a more typical style of learning enviroment, yet interactive and hands-on...too good to be true? If you would like to learn more about what this class has to offer your child please contact Joe Schwartz. Your child is special, we know that and we hope this class helps them feel that way!
"One on One" is:
During the regular SS hour (9am-10am)
In YO Room 2 (located behind the basketball net)
Follows the same stories as our rotation SS only class curriculm in adapted for the needs of the students
Children enjoy playing, learning and growing in their faith
Children have the same teachers and shepherds all year long so no need to adapt to different teaching styles every week.
2 yrs. old through 6th grade
