Happy Easter! It’s time to celebrate that Jesus is alive! He went away, but He came back! Yay, Jesus!
Remember, this Easter could be the very first time EVER for some of the preschoolers at our church to hear the true story of Easter. And for others, this could be their first time ever even going to church. We have the awesome opportunity to tell them for the first time about how Jesus washed His disciples’ feet (March Weeks 1 and 2); made His triumphal entry (March Weeks 3 and 4); and died and rose again (All Easter Services).
We get to tell them the true story of how much God loves them and how He gave them His only Son. We get to tell them that Jesus is alive, and He wants to be their friend forever. We have one of the best jobs in the world! We get to share with preschoolers that Jesus is the best! What an honor and a privilege.
BIBLE STORY: Washing Feet – John 13:3-17
March Weeks 1 and 2 – March 3, 4, 10, 11
In this week’s lesson, Jesus washed His friends’ dirty feet as a way of saying, ‘I love you.’ We can love our friends like Jesus did. All we have to do is look for ways to help them.
BIBLE STORY: Palm Sunday – Matthew 21:1-16
March Weeks 3 and 4 – March 17, 18, 24, 25
In this week’s lesson, the people in Jerusalem praised Jesus by waving palm leaves and shouting, ‘Hosanna, Hosanna.’ We can praise Jesus too! It doesn’t matter how old we are or where we are, we can always praise Jesus.
BIBLE STORY: Easter – Matthew 26:20-30; 27:45-50; 28:1-7
EASTER services – March 29 – April 1
In this week’s lesson, Jesus promised He would come back. And after three days, Jesus did come back. Jesus kept His promise. He’s Alive! God sent Jesus to be my friend and your friend forever.
