Happy Easter! Jesus is Alive!
We kick everything off by sharing the amazing true story about why we celebrate Easter. Toddlers and Prekinder will learn all about how Jesus is special because Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus did amazing things and showed us how to love one another. Then, angry people hurt Jesus so bad that He died. But, Jesus came back—just like He said He would! Yes! Jesus is alive, and He wants to be our friend forever!
On Easter Sunday, we want to make sure that kids know how they can have a relationship with Jesus. The K- 5th lesson this week is something Paul writes about Jesus in Colossians 1:20 and John 20:1-18. Throughout the entire Bible, we see God’s plan to make peace with us. In the second part the Colossians verse, Paul reminds us that it’s through what Jesus did on the cross that the world can be right with God again. Bottom Line: God made peace with us. God went to great lengths to fix what was wrong between us and Him. When God looked across humanity and saw the brokenness of our relationship with Him, He proved He cared about us by sending Jesus, His only Son to die— to build a bridge and resolve the conflict that existed. Now, Jesus is alive, and we can have a relationship with God that lasts forever.
Wishing you and your family a blessed and joyful Easter Sunday.
