A basket of palm branches sits at the entrance to First United Methodist Church in Perrysburg Saturday. Sunday is Palm Sunday, the start of Holy Week.
Churches use branches to commemorate the biblical account of crowds waving palm branches to greet Jesus as he entered Jerusalem, five days before his death on the cross.
