It’s hard to believe, but Easter is almost here. With that in mind, this Sunday we’re learning about the saddest day of the Holy Week—the day Jesus died on the cross. As sad as it is, though, it’s such an important part of the Gospel story. There is no, “He is risen,” without their first being “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”
When you’re ready, watch the lesson video with your kids. It’s fun for the whole family and there is an opportunity to pause and discuss. Afterwards, there are two great worship videos from Yancy to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids. (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLadc9fo1pca_pcf3w2a-3i3x2DFpkLBFF)
Here's some more resources to get you through the rest of the week:
Monday: *PICTURE* Dinnertime question: Jesus took the punishment for our sins. What does that tell you about Him? Would you have done the same?
Wednesday: *PICTURE* Show this to your kids and ask them if they can find the hidden pictures. Can they find the Bible? The shepherd’s hook? How about the coins? For a super duper challenge, try to find all 3 nails.
Friday: *PICTURE* Today’s challenge: It’s so easy for kids to get caught up in the candy and Easter eggs. Challenge your kids to come up with one way to keep Jesus at the center of your Easter celebration.
