Palm Sunday Remember Me

weekend overview

We begin Holy Week remembering the significant events that began on Palm Sunday and culminated on a blood-stained cross on Good Friday and share in the Lord’s Supper.


Begin with some conversation, checking in on how people are doing. You can talk about whatever you’d like, but here are a few potential questions to get the conversation going.

  • Share about a family item that has been passed down over the years? What makes it special?

Select 3-4 questions from the list below to guide your discussion time.

  • Read Joshua 4:8-9. What is one significant place in your spiritual journey? What is something you might share one day with your family?

  • Read Deuteronomy 32:18. Moses is telling the Israelites you forgot and you’re living as though God never loved you or never saved you. They were living as if God was absent from their heart. They forgot God and sadly we are prone to doing the same thing. What activity could you do to remember the things God has done for you?

  • How would you rate your memory on a scale of 1-10? Gene shares that we forget what we should remember and remember what we should forget. What are things that we should remember that would strengthen our faith?

  • Read Luke 22:7–20. Communion is a time for us to remember what God has done. Take turns sharing stories of what God has done in your life.

  • One of our biggest challenges is to forget what we keep remembering. It is so easy to recall the things that are most painful or shameful. Share one thing you want to forget and not look back on. Take time praying for each other to forget and accept God’s grace.
    • Read 1 Corinthians 11:28. This week set aside time to examine where you are in your life. Make a list of situations or things that have happened in the past where you need God’s help to forget. Ask him for the help you need to more forward.

    • This week follow along with Gene’s Holy Week podcast to prepare your heart for Easter.

Share prayer requests and spend time praying for each other.

Pray this for your group: Jesus, as best we can right now, we remember you.  Help us to bring to the cross and forget what we should not remember. Help us to remember what we should not forget.  Amen.
