The Cross (Apr 4-5)
This weekend in children’s church, we will learn about the week leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. We will understand the importance of telling Jesus’story to others and how Jesus chose to suffer and die to save us from our sins.
When you sit at home: Age 3-Grade 2 reads Luke 22:54-62. Grade 3 reads John 19:1-3, 6-11, 16, 19, 30. Grades 4-5 read John 19:1-3, 6-11, 16,30; Luke 23:32-43. Talk about the events that led up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. What good or bad choices did people make? What can we do when we make a bad choice? Check out this link for an online Holy Week storybook your kids can color.
When you walk along the road: When we follow Jesus and do what is right in His eyes, we become more like Him. What are some clues that might show us someone is a follower of Jesus? How do people know you know Jesus? Take turns telling each other why you believe the other person knows Jesus by completing the statement, “I think you know Jesus, because I saw you ____.”
When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “Lord, help us to always tell others we know You. Thank You for always showing us You know and love us. Thank You for loving us so much that You chose to die on the cross to save us. Amen.”
When you get up: Holy Week is a wonderful time to plan some family activities that will help you remember the reason we celebrate Easter. For some ideas, check out this link.
